After taking a fantastic opening of 10.27cr on Day 1, Half Girlfriend has seen a steady jump in collections, raking in an impressive 10.63cr on its second day.
Half Girlfriend’s pre-release buzz gave the film an edge on its opening day- taking collections to an impressive 10.27cr.
While the film has solidly held onto its audience on the second day, it has already clocked a whooping non-theatrical deal for music, satellite, digital and overseas rights, at 36crores! While the Cost of Production and P&A took the film to a landed cost of 50cr. With 36cr already garnered from pre-sales deals, the film needs to do 28cr to break even.
A trade source adds “Half Girlfriend is doing exceptionally well outside of the metros, especially in all big cities in the Hindi markets and and all mass multiplex markets. Such films generally see a drop on Saturday but the film instead grew as the metros picked up in the afternoon and evening shows – taking the total to 10.63cr on the second day.
With a solid 20.9cr in two days Half Girlfriend looks set for a spectacular weekend number between 32-34cr!”
In the face of Bahubali’s mammoth success, competition from an urban multiplex film and the IPL crucial weekend, Half Girlfriend has emerged with an impressive 20.9cr in two days, opening up the field for a big number on Sunday.
