Fukrey Returns box office collection: When Fukrey hit theatres back in 2013, nobody ever thought that the film, which boasts of fresh faces from the industry, would perform so well and that it would be loved by the audience for the realistic appeal as well as unalloyed laughter inducing sharp humour. Four years past the release of the first installment, Fukrey Returns hit the screen with not much expectations. However, what gave it hope was the fact that Judwaa 2 and Golmaal Again, both comedies, had done well. But the fact that Kapil Sharma’s Firangi bombed would have increased anxieties all-around. Not only did the film do a remarkable business in the Indian market but Fukrey Returns is doing a marvelous business abroad too. After two-week run in the theatres, Fukrey Returns has managed to cross the Rs 100 cr mark at the world wide box office (gross). The film has collected Rs. 93.02 cr within the domestic market and another Rs. 8.76 cr in the overseas markets for a total collection of Rs 101.78 cr.
In the domestic market, the film has earned Rs 70.46 cr till now. The Padmavati controversy and the release date being postponed has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the film. Since no significant film released in the past weeks, Fukrey Returns had a free run at the BO. But this weekend may be a major threat to the film’s collections since Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai releases on Friday. Given the fanfare that Salman Bhai has, it will be very difficult for the Fukrey 2 to rake in further moolah. The film is set to face a major set back with the release of Tiger Zinda Hai since the Salman starrer film is occupying atleast 80% of the available theatres.
The movie is set in Delhi and is a story of four Fukras, and their madness. The second installment is a continuation of the first. The first installment ended with Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadda) getting arrested by the police and being sent to jail. But the ‘lady don’ is back again to seek revenge from the Fukreys, Hunny (Pulkit Samrat), Choocha, Zafar (Ali Zafar), Lali (Manjot Singh). The film is definitely a laugh riot and will leave you on the floor laughing. In the earlier installment, we saw Hunny predicting Choocha’s weird dream to form a lottery number which got them easy bucks.
