Bollywood film "Grand Masti" has finished its first week of theatrical run on a grand note. Indra Kumar's directorial did remarkable business in Indian markets.

The film, an adult comedy, accumulated a total amount of ₹67 crore. The breakup of the film's collections, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh is: Friday ₹12.51 crore, Saturday ₹13.21 crore, Sunday ₹14.46 crore, Monday ₹7.75 crore, Tuesday ₹7.42 crore, Wednesday ₹6.25 crore and Thursday ₹5.40 crore.

"Grand Masti" has now become the fourth highest opening week earner, after "Race 2", "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" and "Chennai Express".

All three of the aforementioned films, besides "Grand Masti", had seen one of the widest releases ever, with their screen count being above 3,000. In comparison, the screen count for "Grand Masti" was around 2,000.

The film did exceptionally well on the weekend and maintained the same pace during weekdays. The business of the film declined on weekdays, but only by a margin.      

Generally, films of adult comedy genre are catered mostly to single screens, but "Grand Masti" performed well at single screens as well in multiplexes.

It has also surpassed the lifetime records of films released this year, including "Raanjhanaa" and "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara".

In its first week, the film had no major competition and as result dominated the market. However, in its second week the film is facing tough competition from "Phata Poster Nikla Hero" and "The Lunchbox".

It remains to be seen whether the film manages to dominate the second week or not.

Meanwhile, the lead actor of the film,  Riteish Deshmukh, has thanked everyone for making "Grand Masti" a grand hit at box office.

"Thank you so much for making #GrandMasti's Box Office collections sooooo GRAND. Miss my mastikhors @aftabshivdasani n @vivek_oberoi ," he tweeted.

Apart from Riteish, the film also has Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani in lead roles.
