Box-Office: Decent start for Happy Bhaag Jayegi; Rustom inches closer to the Rs 100 crore mark

Happy Bhaag Jayegi is off to a decent start at the Box Office as the film raked in around Rs 2.50 crore on its opening day.

Given the star-cast and budget, the opening day numbers are pretty good. Starring Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill and Ali Fazal, the film faired best in the Delhi/Punjab belt because of the local flavour. The initial reports are on the positive side and good jumps in collections will ensure a Rs 10 crore plus weekend.

On the other hand, Akshay Kumar's Rustom continued its good run as it raked in around Rs 4.5 crore on its second Friday, taking the total collections to around Rs 94.50 crore. The Tinu Suresh Desai-directorial is expected to breach past the Rs 100 crore mark on second Saturday, thus being the third consecutive Rs 100 crore earner for Kumar.

The business of Mohenjo Daro dropped further on its second Friday as it raked in Rs 1 crore taking the 8-day total to Rs 52 crore. The movie is Hrithik Roshan's first flop since Guzaarish, which released way back in 2010.
