Welcome Back the exclusive big Hindi Film release of the week has opened to a very good response at the box office. The film starring Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Paresh Rawal from the first part along with John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia this time has earned almost Rs 14.25 crore on day one. According to a report the business is very parallel to that of ABCD 2 which holds the record of the second biggest opening of the year so far having collected Rs 14.28 crore on day one. Once the exact numbers for first day collections of Welcome Back are out we shall know if the film is the second or the third biggest opening of the year so far.
However Welcome Back is a big budget film. Also the sequel does not star Akshay Kumar from the original who is certainly a bigger crowd puller than John Abraham. So the film has to continue to perform consistently at the box office. But going by the positive opening day numbers the business of the film holds promise for Saturday and Sunday.
