Mumbai, Mar 3 (): Farhan Akhtar-Vidya Balan starrer Shaadi Ke Side Effects that was released on February 28 has collected 21.26 crore by the end of three days.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#ShaadiKeSideEffects Fri 5.70 cr, Sat 7.55 cr, Sun 8.01 cr. Total: ₹ 21.26 cr nett. India biz only. Very good growth over weekend!”
Shaadi Ke Side Effects did not face any competition as no other Bollywood films was released on that day. Still, the film was never expected to show a big opening at the box office.
On Friday, the sum collected by the movie was not encouraging. Box office collection for the movie on its opening day was 5.70 crore. The main factor behind the low collection was due to the ongoing Asia Cup matches. Particularly, on the opening day, Shaadi Ke Side Effects was affected by the important match between India and Sri Lanka. But, it had a fantastic collection on Saturday at the box office. Saturday’s collection was 7.55 crore.
The movie’s business again got affected on Sunday by the cricket match. The collection was 8.01 crore. Even though the numbers were greater than the previous day collections, the figure was low for a Sunday. Trade experts say the business of Shaadi Ke Side Effects was affected up to 1.5-2 cr nett on Sunday.
Shaadi Ke Side Effects is a sequel to “Pyaar Ke Side Effects”. The comedy film shows the events and issues that take place after marriage.
Taran told that the movie has received positive reviews; in addition the movie has also got a strong word of mouth appreciation. Such factors are expected to give a good boost to the business of the movie. He further said as there are no major films to compete with, Shaadi Ke Side Eeffects is expected to rule the box office this week. Next week, the movie would face stiff competition with ‘Gulaab Gang’, ‘Queen’ and ‘Total Siyapaa’ that are all releasing together.
