Smashing opening for Ranveer-Arjun's GUNDAY, decent week for Sidharth-Parineeti's HASEE TOH PHASEE

Yash Raj Films' production & the Ali Abbas Zafar-directed Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor starrer GUNDAY has embarked on a great opening.
While the multiplexes were superb at 50-75 percent, the single screens too put up a good show with an average opening of around 65 percent. As the day progressed, the film improved further with a few Delhi-NCR multiplexes hovering in the 80-90 percent range, despite biting cold accompanied by rain.
Meanwhile, Dharma and Phantom Productions' HASEE TOH PHASEE managed a decent first-week netting around 26 crores (to be validated). The Sidharth Malhotra, Adah Sharma and Parineeti Chopra starrer was hit by the GUNDAY onslaught on the second Friday, though Valentine's Day did manage to give it a face-saving eighth day. Given the associated costs, the Karan Johar project can at best be rated as an average plus fare at this point of time.
