Badrinath Ki Dulhania is set to emerge the biggest HIT of 2017 till date as it recorded the highest day eight of the year with 4-4.25 crore nett coming on its second Friday which is a drop of around 65% from the first day. Jolly LLB 2 had grossed 3.75 crore nett on its second Friday. The total business of the film is over 76 crore nett in eight days which is a little below Jolly LLB 2 but the trend is stronger..
It has to just consolidate this solid trend on Friday with that big growth on second Saturday which hit films normally show and then that will ensure not only the biggest hit of 2017 but also a benchmark film for the cast (Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt). The business of Badrinath Ki Dulhania (Hindi) till date is as follows.
First Week - 72,25,00,000 apprx
Second Friday - 4,00,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 76,25,00,000
The film got a helping hand from weak releases like Aa Gaya Hero, Machine and Trapped with the main competition coming from Hollywood release Beauty And The Beast but even that would be in just the metros. Badrinath Ki Dulhania is doing its best business in Delhi / UP where it has racked up a total of around 16 crore nett in just eight days and it will become the highest grossing film of 2017 in that circuit.
