Shah Rukh Khan's "Happy New Year" (HNY) has grossed more than ₹300 crore from the worldwide box office inside a week.
The Farah Khan directorial dropped on its second Friday as it minted only ₹7 crore. The collection of the film dropped as expected, due to new releases.
However, "Happy New Year" is still expected to dominate the collection centres as the new releases have opened to dull responses. But the collections of the SRK film will be on the lower side since its screen count has declined.
The film did well in its first week but the main test rests in the second week, when the hype surrounding the movie dies down.
Meanwhile, the net earnings of "Happy New Year" after eight days stands at ₹164.5 crore, while the gross income stands at ₹237 crore, according to Koimoi. The gross income of "Happy New Year" is now more than that of Hrithik Roshan's "Bang Bang".
The musical heist drama, co-starring Deepika Padukone, has shattered the lifetime gross total of Salman Khan's "Dabangg 2" as well. The gross worldwide total of "Happy New Year" stands at ₹300 crore, while "Dabangg 2" gross total was ₹265 crore.
The film is also performing well in overseas circuits and has minted around ₹63 crore till now. By its second weekend, "Happy New Year" will beat the collections of films like "Bang Bang" and "Ek Tha Tiger".
However, it remains to be seen whether it will beat "Krrish 3" and "Kick" records.
Here is the list of top 10 highest grossing Bollywood films till now:
|Movie||Domestic Nett Earnings in Crore||Domestic Gross Earnings in Crore||Overseas Earnings in Crore||Overall Total|
