Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie, Badrinath Ki Dulhania box office Badrinath Ki Dulhania: Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s film is based in a small town.

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s film Badrinath Ki Dulhania has ended first week on a high note with a collection of Rs 73.66 crore. The film went on to collect Rs 5.06 crore on Day 7 ( Thursday). Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#BadrinathKiDulhania Fri 12.25 cr, Sat 14.75 cr, Sun 16.05 cr, Mon 12.08 cr, Tue 7.52 cr, Wed 5.95 cr, Thu 5.06 cr. Total: ₹ 73.66 cr. #BadrinathKiDulhania has an EXCELLENT Week 1… Collects ₹ 73.66 cr… Expected to dominate this week again… Day-wise data follows.”

The combination of a much-loved jodi as the lead pair, foot-tapping music and a good script, and the makers are laughing all the way to the bank. If Taran Adarsh is to be trusted then the film will cross the lifetime collection of its previous version, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania in no time. The previous installment earned about Rs 76.81 crore during its lifetime.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania had become 2017’s highest Monday grosser with Rs 12.08 crore as BO collection. It has beaten Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees (Rs 8.25 crore), Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 (Rs 7.26 crore) and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil (Rs 6.04 crore). Film distributor Akshaye Rathi said Badrinath Ki Dulhania has been a win-win situation for not only actors and filmmakers but also for the trade. What makes the film a hit is also the fact that the film is based on a couple who belong to the small town like UP and Rajasthan. Also, the actors have a regional dialect, which makes them relatable to the audience.

Now that the film is entering its second week since release, it would not be wrong to speculate that the film will definitely become one of the films to earn Rs 100 crore at the box office. The fact that it has negligible competition this Friday in Rajkummar Rao’s Trapped and Mustafa, Kiara Advani-starrer Machine ensures an extended box office window for the film.

Well, the filmmakers have celebrated the success of Badrinath Ki Dulhania already and Shashank Khaitan, director of the film, has already revealed his plans of making the third instalment to Dulhania series. “We are delighted with the response. We are getting a lot of encouragement. After seeing the film, the audience is coming out of the theatres with happy faces. I am really keen to make the third instalment of the ‘…Dulhania’ franchise,” he said at Trapped screening.
