Trade analyst Sumit Kadel in Times Now reports said that the Mudassar Aziz directorial will face a tough time from the two biggies on the box office- “Gold” and “Satyamev Jayate”. He said that the film might not open to huge numbers as the lead actress Sonakshi Sinha hasn’t seen a major hit in the last many years, so considering her track record, the film might not be a success at the box office.
Earlier, Trade analyst Girish Johar had told FinancialExpress.com that the film should open around Rs 2 to Rs 2.5 crore, and could be better than the collection of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Genius. Johar added that the film’s collection depends on the evening shows. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi stars Sonakshi Sinha, Diana Penty, Jasie Gill, Ali Fazal, Jimmy Shergill and Piyush Mishra, while the only name missing from the first part is Abhay Deol.
As per a Bollywood Hungama report, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi on Day 1 grossed Rs. 3.36 lacs from 15 screens in Australia & Rs. 2.42 lacs from 7 screens in New Zealand.
The second release of the week is Genius starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and debutant Utkarsh Sharma. Utkarsh is the son of Anil Sharma, the director of ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ and ‘Apne’, who is also the director of Genius. The film has failed to create a buzz and is even expected to gross Rs 1 Crore.
