This Friday saw two films ‘Badhaai Ho’ and ‘Namaste England‘ clashing at the box office. While one is a family drama, the other is a romantic love story that features actors like Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra; but looks like, the star power has failed to stand in front of the family entertainer starring powerhouse performers like Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta, and Gajrao Rao. ‘Badhaai Ho’ has managed to pull the crowd and thus come out a winner on the first day itself.

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh has shared the first-day collection of ‘Badhaai Ho’ on his social media handle and as per his tweet the movie despite having no big stars has managed to collect Rs 7.29 crore within the country.

On the other hand, the Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s directorial ‘Namaste England’ has failed to create the magic of Akshay Kumar & Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Namastey London’. On its first day, the romantic drama has managed a dismal collection of around Rs 4.95 crores at the Indian box office. The weekend will be an acid test for the romantic drama and we do hope it recovers soon.

Let us wait and watch how the movies fare over the weekend.
