The Box Office collections of Housefull 3 witnessed a jump of 30% on 5 June as it raked in around Rs 21.80 crore - taking the weekendtotal to Rs 53.31 crore.
The film has recorded the highest opening weekend total of the year surpassing Shah Rukh Khan's Fan which collected Rs 52.35 crore at the Box Office.
Unlike Fan, the collections of Housefull 3 seem to be growing with every passing day. The collections on Monday will give a clear picture about whether Housefull 3 may cross the collections of Housefull 2 (Rs 112 crore).
Collections showed an upward trend at almost all the centres in India - with the best figures coming from the mass circuits where the film performed below expectations on the opening days. Central India grew by around 40% as the film raked in Rs 1.05 crore on Sunday as against Rs 66 lakh on Saturday.
Apart from the phenomenal run at the Mumbai Circuit, which also includes the Gujarat Belt, the film managed to put up good numbers even at other major markets like Delhi/UP and East Punjab.
Day-wise Box Office collections for Housefull 3:
- Friday (3 June): Rs 15.21 crore
- Saturday (4 June): Rs 16.30 crore
- Sunday (5 June): Rs 21.80 crore
- Total: Rs 53.31 crore
A Rs 9 crore plus Monday will give the film a chance to cross the lifetime collections of Ready (Rs 123 crore) and emerge as Bollywood's highest-grossing comedy film till date.
Housefull 3 has been made on a budget of Rs 85 crore (excluding print and publicity). So while the film may be an average grosser in its theatrical run, the total revenue - especially the satellite rights - may help producer Sajid Nadiadwala recover his investments in the film.
