Mubarakan turned in a fine opening weekend performance at the North American box office. During the weekend of July 28-30, 2017, the comedy earned $305,449 from 148 theaters ($2,064 average; adjusted average of $2,386 from 128 theaters*). While those numbers aren’t flashy, they’re still better than the opening weekend figures of two other 2017 releases with similar theatrical footprints: OK Jaanu ($211,660 from 136 theaters) and Half Girlfriend ($238,001 from 127 theaters).
Other Hindi movies still in theaters (until SRK’s Jab Harry Met Sejal boots them out on Friday):
- Jagga Jasoos: Week 3; $19,246 from 31 theaters; $621 average; $853,806 total
- Mom: Week 4; $8,645 from nine theaters; $961 average; $602,255 total
- Munna Michael: Week 2; $5,835 from 17 theaters; $343 average; $103,887 total
*Bollywood Hungama frequently counts Canadian theaters twice in when they report figures for a film’s first few weeks of release. When possible, I verify theater counts at Box Office Mojo, but I use Bollywood Hungama as my primary source because they provide a comprehensive and consistent — if flawed — data set.
