Madhavan did well at the box-office in its first weekend. The film garnered net collections of Rs. 11.2 crore in India.

|Friday Collections||Saturday Collections||Sunday Collections||Total (1st Weekend)
|Nett Collections (in Rs. crore)||3.2||4.2||3.8||11.2|
The box-office opening for ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ was excellent considering that the film’s budget was only Rs. 18 crore.
The film did well mainly in multiplexes. Almost 80% of its weekend collections came from multiplexes while the rest is from single screen cinemas.
