Arjun Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend has maintained decent numbers in the weekdays at the box-office. The movie stands at a total collection of Rs 41.61 crore.

The collections of Half Girlfriend in the weekdays are more of a surprise considering the poor reviews by the critics and the average word of mouth the movie engaged to. There has been several instances where we see a commercial movie failing post the weekend and there is a huge jerk in the collections. 


Half Girlfriend being on the same lines was expected to take a beating at the box-office. However, the movie has managed to stay steady and bring some moolah in the weekdays.

The movie escalated to weekdays with a collection of Rs 32 crore. Monday saw average footfalls and the movie collected Rs 5.11 crore on Monday. These are good numbers for Monday. The movie saw a dip of 50% on Monday which is very steady. Half Girlfriend collected Rs 4.46 crore on Tuesday.

Single screen theatres have been strong for the movie considering its commercial content. Multiplexes engaged audience on an average note. The film was released in 2500 screens in India.

Exhibitors are betting well on the movie, as the movie passed to the weekdays with very minor screen cuts. Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend is facing completion from Irrfan’s Hindi Medium and Baahubali.

Half Girlfriend stars Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Rhea Chakraborty, Vikrant Massey in the lead. The film has been produced by Balaji Telefilms and Chetan Bhagat films. The film has been directed by Mohit Suri. Half Girlfriend is based on the famous novel of the same name written by Chetan Bhagat.

Half Girlfriend should cross Rs 50 crore mark by the second weekend. If the film manages to rank in Rs 60 crore + business, it will be stamped with a hit status and bring in very good returns for the producers and exhibitors.

This was the second time author Chetan Bhagat and Arjun Kapoor have collaborated after the superhit 2 States in 2014. None of Arjun Kapoor’s films after the release of 2 states have been successful at the box-office. Arjun’s last release Ki and Ka collected Rs 52 crore at the box-office.
