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.

The entertainer starring Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Tammannaah Bhatia, Esha Gupta and Bipasha Basu is made at a cost of Rs.75 crore.

The Fox Star Studios and Vashu Bhagnani’s co-production has already sold its satellite and music rights for Rs.45 crore.

    I knew it. I saw the movie & can say that if we are not biased towards any particular guy, we must not criticize unnecessarily. Is anyone making any sensible movies these days?? All are almost the same with ample ma!! So, why single out 'Humshakals' for the criticism??
