Tagged as “the comedy of ghastly errors” and “a two-and-a-half-hour show reel of plotless, witless, joyless offensiveness”, director Sajid Khan’s latest offering “Humshakals” has collected over Rs. 40 crore in three days. (Read Review: Humshakals)
The total collection now stands at Rs. 40 crore in just three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
Writer Milap Zaveri, whose adult comedy “Grand Masti” was panned by critics last year, is also happy with the film’s performance.
“#Humshakals is super steady on Saturday! No drop Despite the unprecedented negativity against it! Brilliant! Audiences chose to go for it!,” he tweeted.
#Humshakals does a huge huge Sunday to do a brilliant weekend of approx 40crs! Have never seen a film battle such negativity so victoriously
