Trade analyst Taran Adarsh recently took to Twitter to share the news that Fukrey Returns has earned Rs 59.01 crores at the Indian box-office in its second weekend. At the end of Sunday, Adarsh expects the film to touch the Rs 65 crore mark, with the absence of any other major film release till the next weekend, which is when Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai will hit the theaters.

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, Fukrey Returns has seen a consistent growth at the box office ever since its release on 8 December.

The film stars Richa Chadha, Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma and Manjot Singh in leading roles and sees all the cast members reprising their roles in this second installment of the Fukrey Franchise. The film revolves around a gang of troublemakers, mainly two boys — Hunny and Chucha and their amusing encounters.
