Anees Bazmee directed Mubarakan had a good first week at box office as it minted 35.66 crore. It was already known that its collections and footfalls will take a big drop in 2nd week due to the big release of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. However, JHMS is not doing well at box office which is benefiting this family entertainer in some percentage.
Mubarakan’s screen count has reduced but after the low response to Jab Harry Met Sejal, audience and families are giving a fair response to Mubarakan.
On its 2nd Friday, it collected 1.05 crore and on Saturday, it grew almost 100%, earning 2 crore. The total of this Anil Kapoor-Arjun Kapoor movie is 38.71 crore in 9 days.
Mubarakan will take a lifetime total of around 45crore. It could have gone past 50 crore if it had one more week open as families had shown up in good numbers for it on Sunday and weekdays. Its budget is big so recovery is a worry.
The last hope for Mubarakan is that JHMS is dropping in occupancy and footfalls so it will be preferred in some cases over JHMS as audience is expecting a good amount of laughter. This comedy flick also stars Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty.
