Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s latest release Badrinath Ki Dulhania opened with a band at the box office and still continues to be a strong competitor. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film is the second installment of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and has a completely different storyline.
This is for the third time that Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan have come together for a film, after SOTY and HSKD. Their amazing chemistry and the songs are undoubtedly the USP of these films and not only the audience but the film fraternity is also going gaga over it.
In week one of its release, the film did a business of Rs 12.25 crore on Friday, Rs 14.75 crore on Saturday, Rs 16.05 on Sunday, Rs 12.08 on Monday and Rs 7.15 crore on Tuesday, minting a total of Rs 62.28 crore so far. Though the collections have dipped marginally on day 5, the film is moving ahead strongly at the box office with no competition as of now.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania released on 3000 screens in India and with its superb opening day collections that film has made it to the list of top 10 romantic entertainers. Varun-Alia starrer is also doing a great business in the international market and has emerged as the second highest weekend opener of 2017 in the international market.
The film managed to cross Rs 50 crore mark in just 4 days of its release and is doing exceptionally well with every passing day. The film now stands at Rs 62.28 crore and is all set to cross Rs 100 crore mark in the coming week. In fact, Badri Varun and his Dulhania Alia are extremely happy to see such great response from the audience.
