Sajid Nadiadwala's HOUSEFULL 2 which opened to an unprecedented 42 crores in its first weekend has gone on to cross the much-coveted 100 crore mark, making it the second biggest film of 2012.

Directed by Sajid Khan the film made an approximate Rs. 102.25 crore nett in a commendable 17 days despite the ongoing IPL season. The trade also expects the third week of the film to emerge the fourth or fifth highest of all time with Mumbai, Delhi, UP and East Punjab being the most profitable centers. If that wasn't all, the mad-cap comedy is also the biggest hit of the year in North India.

Says producer Sajid Nadiadwala, "It is overwhelming that the film has made it to the 100 crore club despite releasing during the IPL season. The entire HOUSEFULL team is elated."

On a high note adds director Sajid Khan, "I'm happy that my film more than being a 100cr blockbuster has entertained my audience...and I will never let my audience down. So only to my audience from my heart...Thank you."

Says Akshay Kumar on achieving his first 100 crore release, "For all those congratulating me for HOUSEFULL 2, honestly 100 crores is just a number but I'd be lying if I would say it doesn't matter. THANK YOU ALL for watching & enjoying HOUSEFULL 2."

Adds John Abraham, "100 crores is a feat very few films achieve and I'm lucky to be a part of that benchmark."
