Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 3 collects Rs 15.21 crore on Friday


Entertainment: The recently released 'Housefull 3' has opened to good start at the Box Office as the film has earned Rs. 15.21 crore. The movie, which released on June 3, witnessed a huge occupancy during the evening and night shows after a decent start earlier in the day. The movie featured an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez, Riteish Deshmukh, Lisa Haydon, Nargis Fakhri and Abhishek Bachchan.

After Shah Rukh Khan Starrer Fan, which collected Rs 19.20 crore on the first day, Sajid Nadiadwala’s comedy franchise has now grabbed the second position in the list of movies with highest opening day business of 2016 beating Akshay Kumar’s Airlift which made Rs 12.35 crore and Tiger Shroff-Shraddha Kapoor starrer Baaghi with Rs 11.94 crore at the box office.

Meanwhile, all the releases of last week, Ram Gopal Varma’s VEERAPPAN, Naseeruddin Shah and Kalki Koechlin starrer WAITING, Evana Entertainment’s FREDRICK and Radhika Apte’s PHOBIA, have failed to appeal to the audience. Comparatively speaking it was the Ram Gopal Varma venture which fared the best but it will still end up as a losing fare.

As per the trend, Saturday and Sunday is expected to be better resulting in a good to decent opening weekend for Housefull 3. Let’s wait and see if the makers will be third time lucky and laugh their way to the bank this time too.
