After leaving everyone surprised with a solid opening at box office, latest Hindi film Fukrey Returns showed good growth over the weekend and emerged as hit within 3 days of release. Being the sequel to 2013’s successful Fukrey, this comedy drama was released with good recall value and witnessed excellent response so far.
Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, Fukrey Returns is a controlled budget film and this is why earlier it wasn’t expected to open with more than 5 crores of business. But due to positive word of mouth, it took superb growth over the evening & night shows on Friday and registered the business of 8.10 crores.
With this, it has emerged as the best opener of the year among all comedy drama films with controlled budget like Hindi Medium (2.81 crores), Bareilly Ki Barfi (2.42 crores), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2.71 crores) and Tumhari Sulu (2.87 crores).
On the next day i.e. Saturday, as expected Fukrey Returns reported higher occupancy throughout the day and raked the business of 11.30 crores with around 39.5% of growth than Friday. In 2013, Fukrey also picked up very well from the second day after collecting 2.60 crores on first day.
