Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Half Girlfriend has earned over 45 crores at the box office upto Wednesday. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the day wise box office collection of the film today. ” #HalfGirlfriend Fri 10.27 cr, Sat 10.63 cr, Sun 11.14 cr, Mon 5.11 cr, Tue 4.46 cr, Wed 4.02 cr. Total: ₹ 45.63 cr. India biz.”

The Opening day figure of the film was 10.27 crore where as, as of yesterday the film earned 4.02 crore. Half Girlfriend has managed to maintain a steady pace at the box office even after being panned by critics all over. The film was subjected to all kinds of criticism (almost a sort of roast, if we may say so) and ridicule on social media. But looks like Half Girlfriend has sailed through it all and managed to reach its shore, with the film already breaking even with its investment.
Film Budget : 50 crores ; Sale of satellite, music and other rights which earned them 36 crores plus the ticket window collections so far are well over the film’s budget.

 

Half Girlfriend is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book of the same name. This is his fourth book that has been adapted into a hindi film; the earlier films being 3 Idiots, Kai Po Che and 2 States. The film is directed by Mohit Suri of Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain fame. This is also Arjun Kapoor and Chetan Bhagat’s second collaboration after Two States. The film which is a romantic drama follows the story of Madhav hailing from Bihar (Arjun Kapoor) who falls for a beautiful, english speaking, rich girl (Shraddha Kapoor) ,but she only agrees to be his “half girlfriend” instead of committing to a relationship. In time, he goes on a journey of self discovery to truly win her heart.

The film released in cinemas worldwide on the 19th of May last week.
