Ayushmann Khurrana’s Badhaai Ho, that released on Thursday has managed to showcase a record of 60 percent jump on its day two collection. The movie collected Rs.11.67 Cr on Friday and now the total is Rs.18.96 Cr. The film earned Rs 7.29 crore on its opening day, thus making it Ayushmann’s biggest opener till date.
The movie was not released in Madhya Pradesh due to the ongoing theatre strike but still made it to the top openings of the year by holding the 8th spot.
Film and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter to announce the day two collection of the film and wrote, “
#BadhaaiHo is on a winning streak… Is SUPERB on Day 2… Eclipses biz of *all films* in the marketplace [new + holdover titles]… Thu 7.29 cr, Fri 11.67 cr. Total: ₹ 18.96 cr. India biz… Expect BIGGER NUMBERS on Sat and Sun.”.
Badhaai Ho was supposed to hit theatres on October 19 but the makers decided to release it a day earlier. It may be due to its clashing with Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor’s Namaste England.
The film is a comedy drama where Nina Gupta’s (Ayushmann mother) character gets pregnant at an older age leaving everyone in the family as well as outside in shock.
The film also stars Sanya Malhotra who plays the role of Ayushmann’s love interest, Surekha Sikri, Gajraj Rao and Sheeba Chaddha in pivotal roles. In the trailer, we get to see two families, one of Ayushmann’s and the other of Sanya’s. Ayushmann comes from a middle-class family, as can be seen, while Sanya belongs to the privileged class and is a daughter of a single mother. With lots of fun moments, the trailer will definitely make you droll for the film.
The trailer also showed how the society frowns upon an elderly woman getting pregnant. It is something that the society considers to be a taboo. Ayushmann had earlier starred in a film titled Vicky Donar which too had a quirky sense of humour just like this one.
