Mumbai, March 11 (IANS) Actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan starrer romantic comedy film "Badrinath Ki Dulhania" managed to attract a decent footfall on its opening day, amounting to a collection of Rs 12 crore-plus across India, the makers said.
The Shashank Khaitan directorial released on Friday, and collected Rs 12.25 crore on its first day, read a statement issued on behalf of the makers.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Saturday: "‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania' has an impressive day one... Business likely to multiply over weekend... Strong word of mouth... Friday - Rs 12.25 crore. India biz," Adarsh tweeted on Saturday.
Komal Nahta, another trade guru, tweeted: "Badri and his Dulhania win hearts. Karan Johar and Shashank Khaitan's ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania' is a sureshot winner."
Nahta speculated that the film might collect close to Rs 50 crore in its opening weekend.
"My rough estimates ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania' Day 1 Rs 12-13 crore; Day 2 Rs 16-17 crore.; Day 3 Rs 20 crore. Weekend - Rs 48-50 crore. First week around Rs 80 crore," Nahta wrote.
The film has a good pull not just because of Varun and Alia's chemistry -- which has earlier been seen in "Student of The Year" and "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania", but also because of its hit soundtrack. A fresh take on the popular song "Tamma tamma" has also been included in the album.
