The Yash Raj Films romantic drama Befikre has got off to an impressive start at the box office. Set in Paris, the film starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor has bagged an opening day nett collection of Rs10.36 crore.
Confirming this, Rohan Malhotra, associate vice-president and head of distribution at YRF, tweeted:

The film was released across 2,100 screens in India. Befikre was made at an estimated budget of Rs70 crore, which included Rs15 crore for promotions.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also pegged the opening day figure at Rs10.36 crore.
#Befikre has a double digit start... STRONG at plexes...Fri âÂ¹ 10.36 cr. India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) December 10, 2016
This is the third highest opening day collection for a Ranveer Singh film after Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-leela (2013) which had bagged Rs15.85 crore and Bajirao Mastani (2015) which had got Rs12.80 crore.
Despite the largely negative reviews, Befikre has got off to a good start, but given its Rs70 crore budget, the film will need to get bigger collections over the weekend.
