Comedy films are mostly family entertainers and that’s what gives them a great benefit when it comes to setting the box office ringing. Recently, we reported a list of top 10 highest grossing comedy films in Bollywood.
With the recent release of Housefull 3 which has taken the box office by storm in its first week, we now take a look at the highest first week collections that comedy films have made.
While Salman Khan’s comedy film Ready is currently the highest grossing comedy in Bollywood, interestingly, when it comes to the first week collections, the film is not at the top.
Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardar which released on a Tuesday had an extended week and hence collected 83 crores in its first week.
Here’s a look at the highest first week collections for comedy films :
|Films||1 st Week Collections|
|Son Of Sardaar||83.00 Cr (Extended week)|
|Housefull 3||80.10 Cr|
|Singh Is Bliing||78.00 Cr|
|Welcome Back||74.02 Cr|
|Grand Masti||67.00 Cr|
|Housefull 2||63.00 Cr|
|Bol Bachchan||60.50 Cr|
