Directors Farhad-Sajid’s Housefull 3, which is the third film in the Housefull franchise, hit theatres across India on Friday 3 June 2016. Due to its big budget it is vital for the film to earn big numbers at the box office in its opening weekend, and initial reports suggest the film has managed a decent start.

Housefull 3's first-day collections amounted to about Rs15.50 crore, as reported by BoxOfficeIndia.com. This is the second best opening this year after Fan (Rs18.75 crore).

But the film will be declared a hit only if it grosses at least Rs40 crore over the weekend and does steady business through the week. Due to the weekend and the fact that the content is audience-friendly, the film stands a decent chance of achieving that target, though the film hasn’t quite gone down well with the critics.

Housefull 3 has an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Boman Irani, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri, Lisa Haydon, Jackie Shroff and Chunkey Pandey.
