Box Office – Housefull 3 set to be another 100 crore HIT for Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment
By Joginder Tuteja
In its second weekend, Housefull 3 brought in 15.2 crore more. With this, the film has now netted 95.3 crore in 10 days and has emerged a HIT.
The film grew over the weekend, as was expected from footfalls that were bound to increase due to family audiences stepping in. It is now expected to stay stable right through the week and the 100 crore mark should be crossed by Tuesday or Wednesday. This would also add on to the centuries scored by Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan and Jacqueline Fernandez. For Sajid-Farhad, this would be an entry into the 100 crore club, a feat that has been achieved by only one other director duo in the past, Abbas Mustan [Race 2].
The film is second huge grosser for Sajid Nadiadwala this year after Baaghi and as a producer, he is making some good choices to work with established superstars (Akshay Kumar) as well as rank newcomers (Tiger Shroff). For Eros, Housefull 3 is now yet another big ticket film to score so well, and hence push their stocks further up.
