"Chashme Baddoor" starring Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Taapsee Pannu and Divyendu Sharma collected approximately ₹19.20 crore in its opening weekend at the domestic box office.

David Dhawan's directorial film had a superb Sunday when its collections surged in all circuits. The business was better that day than on Friday and Saturday.

The three day breakup of the film is: Friday ₹5.18 crore, Saturday ₹6.27 crore and Sunday ₹7.75 crore.

"#ChashmeBaddoor has had a rocking Sunday. Better than Fri and Sat. Super growth in every circuit," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.

"#ChashmeBaddoor day-wise growth: Gujarat: Fri 48 lacs, Sat 57 lacs, Sun 80 lacs ... CP Berar: Fri 26 lacs, Sat 27 lacs, Sun 42 lacs." Adarsh tweeted.

"#ChashmeBaddoor Rajasthan: Fri 31 lacs, Sat 30 lacs, Sun 48 lacs ... Punjab: Fri 49 lacs, Sat 60 lacs, Sun 71 lacs."

"#ChashmeBaddoor CI: Fri 22.40 lacs, Sat 24.60 lacs, Sun 35.60 lacs ... Mysore circuit: Fri 21 lacs, Sat 34 lacs, Sun 40 lacs. Fab growth!" he tweeted.

The film, a remake of 1981 film of the same name, raked in higher collections in Punjab, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Mysore.

With ₹19 crore in its pocket, the film, made on a low budget and with no big star cast, has done pretty well at the box office. The total cost of the film including print and advertising costs totals to ₹20 crore.

"Chasme Bhaddoor" is one the highest earnering films released in 2013. After the first weekend collection the adult comedy is behind "Race 2", "Himmatwala", "Special 26" and "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola". But all these flicks were made on budget of over ₹35-₹40 crore.

"Chashme Baddor" also features Rishi Kapoor, Anupam Kher Lilette Dubey and Bharti Achrekar in supporting roles.
