Baadshah of Bollywood seems ready to reign at the box office as his film, Happy New Year is all set to break records on the opening day. One of the biggest releases of the year ”Happy New Year” released today on one of the biggest holiday of the year which is post Diwali. Film has huge pre release buzz and it is expected to shatter few records in first three day itself.
Though like all big releases in recent times film has mixed reviews from few ”usual suspected” sources but that does not matter as box office hurricane has arrived truly in style. Film opened to tremendous response all over in morning itself. Film was close to housefull in early morning shows in Mumbai which is a rarity for any film these days even on festivals. Film is solid in Gujarat, central India and north should pick up by noon.
Aamir Khan’s “Dhoom 3″, which was released on a non-holiday Friday, has the highest opening day collection (36.22 crore). If “Happy New Year” manages to earn 40 crore on opening day, than its likely that it will earn 100 crore in its opening weekend.
Directed by Farah, the film features SRK, Deepika, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah in key roles. The film also features other prominent Bollywood celebs and SRK’s wife Gauri Khan and his youngest son, AbRam Khan, in guest appearances.
