Akshay Kumar-starrer "Housefull 3," which opened to negative reviews, has shown a positive growth at the worldwide box office in two days. The film has been smashing records of Akshay's last release "Airlift" at the worldwide box office.

Starting from the domestic opening day box office collections to overseas earnings, "Housefull 3" has fared better than "Airlift" in just two days. The comedy drama minted Rs. 31. 51 crore compared to Rs. 26.95 crore two-day collection by "Airlift." 

"Housefull 3" is now looking forward to record the second best opening weekend box office collection after Shah Rukh Khan's "Fan." However, it remains to be seen whether the film will cross Rs. 50 crore mark at the domestic box office.

"#Housefull3 maintained the pace on Day 2... Biz witnessed an upswing on Sat... Sun biz is crucial to reach/surpass ₹ 50 cr mark.. #Housefull3 Fri 15.21 cr, Sat 16.30 cr. Total: ₹ 31.51 cr. India biz... Growth in biz on Sat: 7.17%... Sun shows begin on STRONG note. And those who think *only masses/single screen audience in India* relish films like #Housefull3, here's an EYE-OPENER... contd," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.

The film has recorded a good opening at the overseas venues as well. Sajid-Farhad's directorial minted Rs. 13.36 crore from the international market in one day. And after a good opening day, the film showed a growth on its second day in big international circuits.

"#Housefull3 is EXCELLENT Overseas. Collects $ 2 million [₹ 13.36 cr] on Fri [includes Thu UAE-GCC]. #Housefull3 witnesses HIGHER GROWTH in international markets on Sat...UK: 24.20% AUS: 46.05% NZ: 26.37% Biz better than #Airlift @Rentrak," trade analyst Adarsh tweeted.
