Half Girlfriend Friday (Day 1) Box Office Collections is around 10.27 crore. The First Friday Collection is the Fifth Highest Opening Day (1st) Business of 2017 Films.
Half Girlfriend has withstood the Baahubali 2 Storm and scored well at the box office. The numbers are testament to to the strong popularity of Chetan Bhagat’s novels among the urban youth and the youth in Tier 2 cities alongside the added advantage from good music and popular lead actors.
It is a good number for Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor who have got back in the game after a slump. Arjun Kapoor started his revival with Ki & Ka and this is another positive step forward for the actor.
The film has done well in Tier II Cities in territories like CP-Berar, Rajasthan, Bihar, UP etc. Surprisingly the film has performed much better in Tier II Cities compared to Tier – I (Metro Cities). This gives the film a chance to show good growth on Saturday and Sunday provided the word of mouth is good at the box office.
For Arjun Kapoor, this is his third highest opening day after Gunday and 2 States and for Shraddha Kapoor, this is her fourth highest opening day after Ek Villain, ABCD 2 and Baaghi. This is also director Mohit Suri’s second best opening after Ek Villain.
