The first week box office report card of Sajid Khan's "Humshakals" has been good, with movie crossing ₹50 crore mark in India.
The film, which was panned by critics and audiences, managed to remain steady at the box office throughout the first week. The film in its seven days run accumulated around ₹56.35 crore from domestic collection centers.
Here is the first week breakup of the film as provided by the trade analyst Taran Adarsh: Friday ₹12.50 crore, Saturday ₹12.59 crore, Sunday ₹15.04 crore, Monday ₹5.10 crore, Tuesday ₹4.25 crore, Wednesday ₹3.75 crore and Thursday ₹3.12 crore.
Since "Humshakals" was a solo release, the film enjoyed the box office run, but in its second week the film will face stiff competition from Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor starrer "Ek Villain" which has started on a grand note.
The film features Saif Ali Khan, Ritesh Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor in triple roles and Esha Gupta, Bipasha Basu and Tamannah Bhatia in the female lead characters.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha starrer "Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty" raked in ₹10.29 crore in its third week, taking its overall income to ₹110.03 crore nett.
The action thriller remained unaffected in its third week even after the release of "Humshakals."

The film will continue its box office run in its fourth week, but the collection might see a drop as "Ek Villain" has released. "Holiday" is now eyeing to beat the highest grosser film of the year "Jai Ho" and take the foremost position. "Holiday" requires ₹6 crore more to beat the mark and if it remains steady next weekend, then it will surpass the ₹116 crore total of "Jai Ho" by the end of week four.
Rajkumar Rao's "Citylights" which was released a week before "Holiday" has taken its overall domestic business to ₹8.37 crore. "#Citylights total after 4th Week: ₹8.37 cr nett. India biz," Adarsh tweeted.
Hollywood film "How To Train Your Dragon-2" has seen a drop in its second week collection. The film's two week income from Indian markets now stands at ₹11.39 crore.
Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Halle Berry starrer "X Men: Days of Future Past" has finished its five weeks run in India. The film has done great business in India by earning ₹45.08 crore.
