Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi and Genius to release today

Gear up movie lovers as Friday is here to trigger your excitement. With two movies of completely different genre releasing today, your weekend is absolutely sorted. On August 24, Happy Phirr Baag Jayegi and Genius are all set to clash at the box office. Both the films are expected to find good traction at single screens as well as multiplexes.

Talking about multi-starrer Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, which is a sequel to 2016 film Happy Bhag Jayegi, directed by Mudassar Aziz. The previous movie relied completely on word of mouth and the same is expected in this case. Sonakshi Sinha and Jassi Gill are new additions to the team whereas Diana Penty, Ali Fazal, Piyush Mishra and Jimmy Sheirgill continue to be part of the flick. Produced by Krishika Lulla and Aanand L Rai, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is a light-hearted watch.

On the other hand, Genius directed by veteran filmmaker Anil Sharma has his son Utkarsh Sharma, Ishitha Chauhan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles. Catering to young masses, the music of the film has already become a hit. Gadar fame Anil Sharma is leaving no stones unturned to make it big for his son Utkarsh. Hope that the masala element attracts the audience.

However, the competition is tough as Akshay Kumar's Gold and John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate are still going strong at the ticket counters. While Reema Kagti's fictional sports drama has minted around Rs 79 crores in the first week, Milan Milap Zaveri's vigilante drama has earned Rs 62.6 crore according to BoxOfficeIndia.com.
