Happy New Year Movie Box Office Prediction. Hit or Flop!

Happy New Year is one of the most awaited biggie of the year without a doubt. Film stars Blockbuster Jodi of Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. Also giving them company is Abhishek 'Dhoom' Bachchan. Plus, there is Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah in pivotal roles. Film is directed by Farah Khan.

Happy New Year is releasing on 24th October in this festive season and is ready to set box office on fire. Film is set for biggest release of all time Worldwide. A bare minimum in the region of 4200-4300+ screens are expected in India, whereas a bare minimum of 800 is expected in Overseas. This is just a starting number, screen allocation has started and by 24th it is expected to be much higher than predicted level.
When last time SRK and Deepika came together in Chennai Express (2013) it literally broke all box office records then and created new one. Same is again expected with HNY. So, without any further delay let's start the box office prediction of Happy New Year.

Film Budget: Approx INR 130 crore.

Single Day Potential: Film is set for release in 4300-4500 screens in India as per estimations. Ideally film has potential of 43+ crore nett in a Single Day with 100% occupancy. 

First Day Collection: Since, film is set for release on 24th October, day after Diwali, it should take earth shattering start with 85-90%+ occupancy on average for the day. That means film has realistically chance of collecting 40 crore nett and even more. That means biggest single day record is in danger.

First Weekend Collection: Film will have record first weekend without a doubt and should boost historic numbers on Friday, Saturday and Sunday unless there is extremely negative word of mouth. Film is expected to collect 90-100+ crore nett in First Weekend with such enormous screen release. Anything less than that will be some kind of disappointment.

Lifetime Business: No doubt Happy New Year will open to record numbers in opening day and weekend. But lifetime collection is dependent mainly on word of mouth. Film will zoom past 150 crore nett in first few days itself because of Star Power and Festive mood. But after that it will need the content power to go further. Still in likelihood 200 crore nett looks a bare minimum for Happy New Year even with mixed report. If reports are good then film has every chance of going past 225+ crore nett and even challenging Dhoom 3 as highest grosser of all time.


First Day: Expected around 38-40 crore nett (should be new record).

First Weekend:

If accepted: 90-100+ crore nett.
If mixed: 70-90 crore nett.
If rejected: less then 65 crore nett.


If accepted: 225+ crore nett.
If mixed: 170-220 crore nett.
If rejected: Less than 160 crore nett.

Our Estimate: Happy New Year should go over 200 crore nett in India easily with star power of Shah Rukh Khan. But there is little question mark on content and direction capability of Farah Khan. If that is all good then expect collection to go over 225+ crore nett and be one of the biggest Blockbuster of all time.

Verdict: Huge Blockbuster awaits.
