Kapil Sharma's comic caper Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon managed to get a strong hold on Saturday. The film had a routine drop of 20 per cent, there by collecting Rs 8.60 crore on its second day.
The drop was expected as Friday was a holiday in many territories due to the occasion of Bakri Eid. The film is doing terrific business in North and Central India and in Gujarat where theatre occupancy is increasing with every passing show. The film managed to do good business in Mumbai too which has given the collections a huge boost.
The terrific performance of Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon in Gujarat is not surprising as Gujarat is one of the most favourable markets for well-made comedy films. In 2010, comedy film Khichdi, opened to packed houses in Gujarat despite facing competition from Anjaana Anjaani.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon has became the highest opener ever for a debutant going past the collections of big films like Student of The Year, Hero and Heropanti.
Day wise Box Office collection:
- Friday: Rs 10.15 crore
- Saturday: Rs 8.60 crore
- Total: Rs 18.75 crore
The film was made on a controlled budget and Vashu Bhagnani (Distributor) acquired the all India distribution rights of the film for merely Rs 10 - 12 crore. Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is one of those rare films where the complete investment - for the producers as well as the distributors - will be recovered within the first weekend itself.
The collections post the weekend will just be surplus and the film is all set to emerge as one of the biggest surprise hits of 2015.
Welcome Back and Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon's openings at the Box-Office signal high hopes for Akshay Kumar's Singh Is Bliing which belongs to a similar genre. The movie releases on 2 October, and is expected to be Akshay Kumar's biggest opener till date, going past Brothers by a big huge margin.
Directed by Abbas Mustan, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon stars Kapil Sharma, Elli Avram, Manjari Phadnis, Simran Kaur and Sai Lokur in pivotal roles.
