Among the many films that released earlier last week on Friday, Parineeti Chopra and Siddharth Malhotra starrer Hasee toh Phasee has went onto become the highest grosser by collecting 18.5 crores at the domestic box office over the first weekend itself.
Vinil Mathew’s directorial debut venture, Hasee toh Phasee, has been co produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Anurag kashyap’s Phantom Productions and is believed to have had a budget of around 25 crores. However, the movie’s focus point had to be the pairing of Siddharth and Parineeti which managed to create enough curiosity and excitement among viewers ever since the trailers appeared on television.
Meanwhile, Shekhar Suman’s directorial adventure started off on a wrong note as ‘Heartless’ on second position, way behind ‘Hasee toh Phasee’ having collected only 75 lakhs over the weekend. However, Suman’s son Adhyayan, who is also the lead actor in the movie, expressed his satisfaction at the reviews the film has been receiving nation over.
Nila Madhab Panda-directed “Babloo Happy Hai” and Hasnain Hyderabadwala directed “Ya Rab”, the other two movies to have been released last Friday, turned out to be complete disasters and failures at the domestic box office.
