Box office: 'Gunday' off to a flying start

Ranveer-Arjun’s 'Gunday' opens well at the box office

This week’s release Gunday, starring Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra has got off to a flying start at the box office.

The Yash Raj Films’ presentation which released on over 2800 screens minted Rs. 16.12 crore net on its opening day at Indian box office, as per trade figures. It is a terrific opening for a film not starring a male superstar. Goes to show that besides Priyanka Chopra, the male actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, too, enjoy a good pull at the box office.

Putting the opening day collection of Gunday in perspective, it is just a little shy of Salman Khan’s Jai Ho opening of Rs. 17.75 crore last month. In fact, in East Punjab the film fared even better than Jai Ho had done there. Gunday has also done very well in Delhi.

Across India, the response to the film has been a good one, with multiplexes faring better than single screen theatres.

The film has got mixed reactions from critics, but the extensive promotion and the Yash Raj clout at the exhibitor level has only helped Gunday notch good opening day numbers.

If there’s no dip in the momentum, the film might rake in a collection close to Rs. 50 crore in the first weekend itself, give or take a few crores.

Meanwhile, the last week’s release Hasee Toh Phasee rounded off its first week at the box office with Rs. 30 crore.

The coming week would see the release of Highway and Darr @ The Mall.
