Fukrey 3 had a strong start at the box office on its first day, despite facing competition from other movies like The Vaccine War and Jawan. Fukrey 3 is the third film in the Funny Fukrey series. It hit theaters on a Thursday and did really well on its opening day.
On the very first day, Fukrey 3 managed to earn an impressive Rs 8.50 crore at the box office. This is quite a significant amount, especially considering it was released at the same time as Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan, which has been doing really well in theaters.
To put this into perspective, the second film in the Fukrey series, Fukrey Returns, which came out in 2017, earned Rs 8.10 crore on its opening day and eventually made a total of Rs 80.32 crore during its time in theaters.
The first film, simply titled Fukrey, released in 2013, could only manage Rs 36.5 crore during its theatrical run.
Fukrey 3 had to share the spotlight with Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War, which was released at the same time. However, The Vaccine War didn’t perform as well, only earning Rs 1.3 crore on its opening day.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan, which was released earlier in the month, is still going strong at the box office, despite offering a ‘buy 1 get 1’ ticket deal. On its 22nd day in theaters, Jawan earned Rs 5.50 crore, bringing its total domestic collection to a staggering Rs 581.43 crore.
The producer of Fukrey 3, Ritesh Sidhwani, spoke about the success of sequels in the film industry. He mentioned that not all sequels do well and that it’s essential to have strong characters and a genuine love for the story for a sequel to work.
According to him, if the story naturally progresses and there’s a dedicated fanbase, then making a sequel is a good idea.
Fukrey 3 features a talented cast including Richa Chadha, Pankaj Tripathi, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat, and Manjot Singh. It’s directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, who also directed the first two films in the series.
