Bollywood film Happy Phirr Baag Jayegi starring Sonakshi Sinha clash with Genuis at the box office this Friday. The film was expected to find good traction at single screens as well as multiplexes. However, the Mudassar Aziz directorial venture had a slow start at the box-office as it collected only Rs 2.70 crore on its opening day.
“#HappyPhirrBhagJayegi has a slow start on Day 1... Fared better in North... Needs to witness substantial growth over the weekend + maintain a strong trend on weekdays to leave a mark... Fri ₹ 2.70 cr. India biz... First part had collected ₹ 2.32 cr on Day 1”, trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh said on social media.
Director Mudassar Aziz had earlier spoken about the film and said, “It is about mistaken identity and the confusion created by it. The first part was only about Diana’s Happy fighting for love and landing up in Pakistan but in this one, Sonakshi is mistaken to be Happy (Diana) in China. The confusion creates humour. We thoroughly enjoyed shooting the film. I hope audience enjoys watching it too.”
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.
