Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ which had a successful run at the box office, but it failed to break the opening weekend record of Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’. While SRK’s ‘HYN’ grossed Rs 134 crore in the first week, Salman’s ‘Kick’ record stands unbeaten at Rs 155 crore (net).
According to the reports, the film did great business in Mumbai and Gujarat in the last week and is still going steady, but it doesn’t seem to have as strong a grip on the box office as ‘Kick’ did.
Directed by Farah Khan ‘HYN’ had opened to mixed reviews. But the film did enjoy a great opening.
Reportedly in its first four days, this heist film has grossed Rs 109 crore. The film which collected Rs 44.97 crore on the opening day has joined Rs 100 crore club in just three days time. Since Diwali holidays end and schools and offices reopens its collection dropped drastically,
‘HYN’ minted just Rs 12.25 crore nett on Monday and on Tuesday; the business was around Rs 11 crore.
‘HYN’ had a good run in the overseas market. It’s worldwide figures stand at Rs 245 crore, which is the fourth highest total ever after ‘Dhoom 3’, ‘Kick’ and ‘Chennai Express’. This Shah Rukh Khan starrer isn’t the record breaking film, as it was touted to be.
