The dry run of Bollywood movies at the box office finally comes to an end with the Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan starrer Gunday doing superb at the ticket windows. Keeping Jai Ho aside, there were no other movies which managed to get good response from the audience. We are pretty sure team Gunday must be happy with its first weekend collection which is approximately over Rs 40 crore. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adrash tweeted, “Gunday Fri 16.12 cr, Sat 12.63 cr, Sun 15.18 cr. Total – 43.93 cr nett. India biz only. Excellent!”
According to a gossip magazine, “Gunday had a good weekend as it collected around 40.25 crore nett over its first weekend. The film was good in most circuits with only Mysore really underperforming. There was a drop on Saturday but that was partly because the first day had collections that were a little higher than they would have been normally due to Valentine’s Day. The business in multiplexes across India was better than single screens despite it being an action masala film. The film is a success but it is the weekdays that will tell if the film can become a major hit.”
According to us, this YRF movie will enter the Rs 100 crore club with great ease if its good run at the box office continues. But Imtiaz Ali’s much awaited film Highway starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda will hit the screens this week, so we will have to wait and watch what lies ahead in store for Gunday!
