Grand Masti has collected around 40.5 crore in its first weekend at the box office. Given the fact that the film didn’t have a major star cast, the opening on Friday came as a pleasant surprise. A good opening in the range of 7-8 crore was always on the cards, but not many in the trade expected the opening day business to comfortably cross the 10 crore mark.
Even though the film had a reasonably wide release (2048 screens), business across all territories picked up by around 5% on Saturday. Mumbai performed the best with close to 40% of the weekend business generated from this circuit alone. On Sunday, afternoon to late evening, most shows were running to 75-80% occupancy, night shows were pretty good too.
Irrespective of how Grand Masti fares on Monday, the film is hugely profitable to all its investors. If it sustains well today, the first week business might well be close to Rs 60 crore net. The release of Phata Poster Nikhla Hero next week, will affect the film’s business, but it still has a chance to be the highest ‘adult’ grosser ever. Grand Masti needs to beat the 80 crore record of ‘The Dirty Picture’ to do so.
