Saif Ali Khan-Ileana d'Cruz's "Happy Ending" has witnessed growth on the second day at the domestic box office.
"Happy Ending" had a slow start on the opening day by minting ₹4 crore. The film, however, picked up on Saturday, 22 November by minting ₹5 crore on the second day. The film's two-day collections amount to ₹9 crore at the domestic box office, reported Koimoi.
The romantic comedy entertainer noticed growth in urban centres on the second day, while its business had been on the lower side in single screens, the website stated. The Saif starrer has been getting positive reviews from the critics as well as from the audience, which is likely to boost its performance on Sunday. "Happy Ending" is expected to end the first weekend on a good note. It needs to be seen as to how the film fares during the weekdays.
Saif has been going through a lean phase with his last two films, "Bullett Raja" and "Humshakals", failing to fare well at the box office. It remains to be seen if "Happy Ending" will be able to perform well and emerge as a hit at the box office. The film is expected to have an open run at least for two weeks as there are no other big releases until 5 December when Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha's "Action Jackson" hits the screens.
Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, "Happy Ending" is said to be a spoof of romantic comedy entertainers.
The film has Saif and Ileana playing the lead roles, while Govinda appears in a pivotal role. Kalki Koechelin and Ranvir Shorey are also part of the film's cast, while Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor Khan appear in cameos.
Govinda, who made a comeback to films with the recently-released "Kill Dil", has won accolades for his performance as a film star in "Happy Ending".
The music is composed by Sachin-Jigar duo, while the project is produced by Illuminati Films.
