Akshay Kumar-starrer "Housefull 3" maintained a good pace at the worldwide box office by grossing over Rs. 100 crore in just four days. "Housefull 3" is the second film of the year to take its worldwide box office collection to more than Rs. 100 crore in just four days.
Shah Rukh Khan's "Fan" remains the fastest Rs. 100 crore grosser of 2016, thanks to its overseas box office collection. But "Housefull 3" will soon take over Shah Rukh's "Fan" worldwide earnings with the help of its domestic box office collection. "Housefull 3" has grossed Rs. 112.27 crore and by the end of the first week the collection will cross the Rs. 150 crore mark.
Domestic box office
The Sajid-Farhad directorial comedy-drama had a good hold on its fourth day at the domestic box office. The box office collection of the multi-starrer comedy drama dropped 45 percent on Monday, the fourth day, compared to the opening day collection.
"Housefull 3" minted Rs. 8.25 crore on Monday, which took its nett four-day total to Rs. 61.56 crore, while the gross income stands at Rs. 85.50 crore. If the film maintains a good hold at the box office, then "Housefull 3" might cross Rs. 80 crore mark in its first week. The first-week occupancy of "Housefull 3" is similar to Akshay's last release "Airlift" and looking at its four-daytotal it is can be said that the film might emerge as the biggest first week grosser of 2016.
"#Housefull3 Fri 15.21 cr, Sat 16.30 cr, Sun 21.80 cr, Mon 8.25 cr. Total: â‚¹ 61.56 cr. India biz... Should cross â‚¹ 80 cr in Week 1... SUPERB," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, adding: "#Housefull3 held a STRONG grip, after a FANTASTIC weekend... Decline in biz: 45.76%... Yes, it has PASSED the crucial 'Monday test.'"
Overseas box office
The film has been doing well at the overseas box office as well. "Housefull 3," which also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh, minted $ 4 million (Rs. 26.77 crore) in its opening weekend at the overseas box office. The overseas collection of "Housefull 3" is the second highest after Shah Rukh's "Fan," but better than "Airlift."
"#Housefull3 scores big in international markets too... Collects $ 4 million [â‚¹ 26.77 cr] in its opening weekend. SUPERB!" Adarsh tweeted.
Directed by Sajid-Farhad, "Housefull 3" features Abhishek, Riteish, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon in the lead roles. The comedy-drama also has Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff and Chunky Pandey in pivotal roles.
