Badhaai Do had a good weekend, grossing 7.82 crores. On Sunday, the film brought in an additional 3.45 crores, however these should have been Saturday statistics with higher numbers pouring in after that. That being said, the trend is positive, and all eyes are now on how Monday holds up.
A theme like this is destined to have limited collections, and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui was no exception. Ayushmann Khurranna and Vaani Kapoor starred in that film, which had a lot more stylish look. Despite this, the opening weekend grossed 14.53 crores, despite the fact that the premiere of Sooryavanshi had prompted spectators to return to the theatres. Badhaai Do had a lot of problems right from the start, so one couldn’t expect anything better.
Badhaai Ho has now completed about half of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui in its first weekend, and it remains to be seen where the lifespan will wind up. At 28.26 crores, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui folded, and one can only hope that Badhaai’s trajectory will be better, with at least 20 crores coming in its lifetime.
The film is directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni. Apart from Bhumi Pednekar and Rajkummar Rao, it also stars Seema Pahwa and Sheeba Chaddha in pivotal parts. Amit Trivedi, Khamosh Shah, and Tanishk Bagchi composed the film’s music, which is produced under the umbrella of Junglee Pictures.
