Happy Bhaag Jayegi had a low first day grossing around 2.25 crore nett. The collections were better in the evening but remains to be seen if that can transform into a big jump today. The growth will be there for the film today but it depends on how big the growth is and can it go towards the 4 crore nett mark. Despite the low first day number, the film can’t be written off just yet as the costs are low and a big jump over the weekend can see it through. The film has behaved much better in the North as expected with Delhi /UP and East Punjab being the best circuits by far. The opening day is the 25th best of the year and is similar to films like Madaari and 1920 London. Below are a list of films that opened to a similar to Happy Bhaag Jayegi and the positions for 2016.

Generally its a list of flop films as not only did these films not open well but did not follow up with the required growth over the weekend and that is where Happy Bhaag Jayegi will have to differe if it is to go through.
