‘Housefull 4’ Earns Rs 124.5 Crore at the Box Office in Six Days
The release of Housefull 4 clashed with Saand Ki Aankh and Made in China.
Housefull 4 is doing very well at the box office. The film, which is the fourth installment of the popular comedy franchise, has surpassed the collections of Made in China and Saand Ki Aankh. According to the latest report in Boxofficeindia.com, Housefull 4 has managed to rake in a total of Rs 15.50 crore on its sixth day. The film has managed to collect a total of Rs 124.50 crore at the box office.
Housefull 4 hit the theatres on 25 October. The film is also doing well overseas and collected $3.03 million (Rs 21.4 crore) globally over its opening weekend. Its highest earnings are in the Middle East and North America at $960,000 and $902,000, respectively.
The ensemble comedy, which stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol and Kriti Sanon had a healthy opening and collected Rs 18.85 crore on its first day. “Housefull 4 puts up a healthy number on Day 1... Biz did not grow in evening due to pre-#Diwali festivities... Day 4 [Mon] is extremely crucial, when #Diwali celebrations begin and families throng cinema halls... Fri Rs 18.85 crore,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter.
Movie business analyst Atul Mohan had told The Quint that Housefull 4 was expected to earn “between Rs 15 to Rs 20 crore” on day one.
On the other hand, the buzz around director Tushar Hiranandani’s Saand Ki Aankh, which also released on the same day, has been positive. It has already been declared tax-free in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, and is expected to be announced tax-free in several other states, around its release.
“Saand Ki Aankh could open with around Rs 4 crore collections on opening day,” said Atul. “Made In China will most likely have a lower opening than Saand Ki Aankh,” Atul Mohan said.
“Looking at the current trend and taste of the audience, people are liking inspiring stories and biopics, and powerful content-driven cinema. So Saand Ki Aankh has a great chance of making money,” he added.
