Bareilly ki Barfi is released on 18 August, 2017 and film has received goodwill from the film fraternity and audience. This film is a clean family entertainer and therefore the collections will rise over a period of time. Opening day for Bareilly ki Barfi is going to be around 3-5 crores considering it is a low budget, limited release. Collections of this film are bound to pick up during Saturday and Sunday because this family is light in nature and made for people of all ages. Bareilly ki Barfi does not really have a competition on North India box office because it is the only important Hindi release.
VIP 2 Lalkar and Annabelle Creation will find good occupancy but their shows are very limited in this part of the world. Nene Raju Nene Mantri and VIP 2 (Tamil) are dominating the south Indian box office hence Bareilly ki Barfi won’t be seen by a large number of people there. Foreign box office is helmed by Annabelle Creation and Logan Lucky which makes it difficult for the film of any other region to work there. Bareilly ki Barfi has strictly one week to gather whatever it may because next week Thala Ajith’s Vivegam is arriving.
Vivegam is to take over South Indian box office and some of North India as well. Rest of the work in North India will belong to A Gentleman starring Siddharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. First weekend collection of Bareilly ki Barfi are going to be around 12-14 crores.
