Back in 2015 when Kapil Sharma had acted in Abbas–Mustan directed Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, the film had emerged as a surprise hit at the Box Office. After a good opening day of 10.15 crore, the comedy had held on well to come close to the 50 crore mark in its lifetime run. However, Firangi would struggle to do even one third of this business as the weekend numbers are hardly there. The film collected a meager 7.50 crore* in its first three days and one waits to see how much further does it stretch close to the 20 crore mark in its lifetime run.
Tera Intezar couldn’t even gather 2 crore though in its opening weekend. With a mere 1.50 crore* coming in, the collections are pretty much similar to what last week’s release Julie 2 had gathered in its first three days. These are disastrous numbers indeed from where any sort of turnaround is pretty much impossible, especially when the content has been entirely panned as well.
On the other hand the content of Tumhari Sulu was appreciated by its target audience and it is this very audience that has allowed the film to go past the 30 crore mark. Standing at 32.50 crore*, the film is a decent success that Bollywood has seen in what are largely dull times. The film should gather at least 1 crore more during the weekdays and then some more numbers in next couple of weeks as well before Tiger Zinda Hai arrives on 22nd December.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
