Box office: 'Humshakals' defies odds, mints Rs. 40 cr in opening weekend

‘Humshakals’ pulling in crowds despite negative reviews

Sajid Khan must be laughing his heart out. His latest directorial venture Humshakals, panned squarely by all critics, has done very well in the opening weekend.

Made at a budget of Rs. 75 crore, Humshakals has already recovered Rs. 45 crore from satellite and music rights. At the box office, it needs to recover the distributer share and also be a profitable venture for producer Vashu Bhagnani and Fox Star Studios. Looks like it is headed for that target.

Despite being trashed by the critics, the film starring Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Tamannaah, Bipasha Basu (who boycotted the film as she found the end result “extremely disturbing”) and Esha Gupta has raked in a very good Rs. 40.13 crore net in the opening weekend at the Indian box office.

Movie Review: Watch ‘Humshakals’ if you are a Himmatwala

The break up is thus:

Friday: Rs. 12.50 crore
Saturday: Rs. 12.59 crore
Sunday: Rs. 15.04 crore
Total opening weekend: Rs. 40.13 crore

The real test of Humshakals begins on Monday. But trade circles are already abuzz with the talk that the film is set to spin more money in the coming week. ApunKaChoice will keep you updated on that.

The collection of Humshakals will be dented from Friday onwards when the much awaited film Ek Villain hits theatres.
