This figure is humongous when compared to Aamir Khan's 'Dhoom 3', which made Rs 69.58 crore in same duration. Having already beaten the till-now amazing opening day record set by Aamir Khan's 'Dhoom 3' (Rs 36.22 crore) with a business of Rs 44.97 crore, 'Happy New Year' box office collections are now all set to enter the Rs 100 crore club inside of three days. Dhoom 3's collections in three days were Rs 107.61 crore.
With King Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah coming together for a heist and dance adventure, 'Happy New Year' was predicted to hit the bullseye at the box office. And it seems, the film is on the way to do just that and rewrite Bollywood history!
