Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt's "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya" continues to rock at the box office. The film earned ₹9.02 crore on the first day, thus becoming Varund Dhawan's biggest opener.

"Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya" witnessed significant growth on the second day (Saturday) and minted ₹11.25 crore. The film's two-day collections amount to ₹20.27 crore. If the romantic comedy entertainer continues to perform well, it is likely to end the first weekend by surpassing the ₹30 crore mark. It will beat the opening weekend collections of "Heropanti" (₹21.33 crore), "Main Tera Hero" (₹22.73 crore) and "Ragini MMS -2" (₹24.5 crore).

The Varun-Alia starrer opened to good reviews from critics and the audience also seems to have liked the film, which is evident from its collections. It performed well despite the release of Riteist Deshmukh's Marathi film "Lai Bhaari," which opened to fantastic response across Maharashtra by raking in ₹3.10 crore on the first day, according to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

"Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania" has also fared well in overseas markets.The film has earned better collections than "Main Tera Hero" in USA-Canada and Australia markets, said Adarsh.

Apparently, the release of the Varun Dhawan starrer has affected the business of "EK Villain," which has crossed the ₹100 crore mark and has emerged as one of the biggest hits of 2014.

With "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania" receiving positive feedback, it is expected to dominate the domestic box office in the coming days. It will be interesting to see how the film fares during weekdays.

Next week, bollywood industry will be witnessing a string of releases including "Hate Story 2" and "Pizza", the remake of hit Tamil film with the same name. If "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya" manages to outperform these films, it is likely to have a successful run for at least another week until the release of Salman Khan's "Kick", which is slated to hit the screens on 25 July.
