This Friday we get two movies hitting the theatres. As we see the Bollywood gradually trying to cope with the Baahubali juggernaut, we have films like Hindi Medium and Half Girlfriend that seemed to be clashing at the box office this week. How much will these two films collect on their opening day? How much will they earn in the opening week? Will these two films be able to lower down the pace of Baahubali superfast express? Let’s have a guess as per the market trends.
Let’s talk about Saket Chaudhary’s Hindi Medium. The film boasts of a consistent performer, National Award-winning actor and Bollywood’s Mr Dependable Irrfan Khan, who has delivered films like Paan Singh Tomar, Piku, The Lunchbox, The Namesake among others in the past. In Hindi Medium too, Irrfan delivers a brilliant performance alongside Pakistani actress Saba Qamar who makes her Bollywood debut with the film.
The film is expected to collect 5 to 6 crores on the first day and at the first weekend collection, we can expect a figure of not less than 20 crores for sure. Now, let’s check the other film the Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend. It come along with a fresh pairing of Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. The film also flaunts the name of bestselling author Chetan Bhagat as its story writer and producer. We all know that films based on Chetan Bhagat’s books have done decently well in the past, and Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots even went on to become a blockbuster collecting Rs 395 crores! Talking about Half Girlfriend, the 1st day box office collection would be 4-5 crores, while it will increase in the first weekend for sure.
