Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Badhai Ho (Badhaai Ho), which is riding high on positive word of mouth from the audience and critical acclaim, has received a phenomenal response on day 2, Friday, cashing in on the advantage of the Dussehra holiday.
The movie, which also stars Sanya Malhotra, Gajrao Rao and Neena Gupta took off to a flying start at the box office on the opening day and had collected Rs 7.29 crore at the Indian box office.
Released in 1000 plus screens, Ayushmann-Sanya starrer overpowered Arjun-Parineeti's Namaste England which performed below expectations and collected a mere Rs 1.5 crore at the box office.
Badhai Ho earned in double figures on day 2, registering an excellent jump in collection.
"#BadhaaiHo is on a winning streak... Is SUPERB on Day 2... Eclipses biz of *all films* in the marketplace [new + holdover titles]... Thu 7.29 cr, Fri 11.67 cr. Total: ₹ 18.96 cr. India biz... Expect BIGGER NUMBERS on Sat and Sun. [sic]," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
If the movie manages to keep the momentum going, it is expected to rake in around Rs 30 crore in its extended four-day opening weekend at the domestic box office.
Badhai Ho is a small-town story of a couple welcoming a baby at an old age which adds to the humour and laughter along with the brilliant performances by all the actors.
