Gunday’ got a mixed response with ups and downs in three days of its release but managed to rake in more than Rs. 40 crores at the box office over the weekend. The BO collection was almost Rs. 44 crores, Rs. 43.93 crores to be specific.
The film – an YRF presentation features Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh in the lead along with Arjun Kapoor. There was around 70% occupancy on the opening day, whereas the film opened in around 2000 screens. On the first day, the film collected Rs. 16.12 crores.
The collection of the film dipped on the second day, Saturday, but still got Rs. 12.63. However, on Sunday, the film got the higher collection with Rs. 15.18 crores. This was due to the mouth publicity and the positive reviews the film got within a couple of days.

Looking at this progress, the film should make progress towards at least Rs. 100 crores. The film has been made with a budget of between Rs. 50 and 55 crores. There isn’t any other film set for release right away. So, that should help Gunday make more business.
