Yash Raj Films’ latest offering “Gunday” has collected over Rs.40 crore in three days. It is expected to do well in the next weekend too, says a trade expert.

Director Ali Abbas Zafar's action thriller, which released Feb 14, has minted Rs.43.93 crore, said a statement.

The movie starring Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra “has managed to draw crowd to cinema halls", says Gautam Dutta, chief operating officer, PVR Cinemas.

“It is one of the much-awaited films. The response is very good. The occupancy (over three days) was about 80 percent. The songs, genre and two young actors with Priyanka... everything is well taken up,” said Dutta.

"We are positive about next weekend too," said Dutta.

He also said that some people liked the first half of the film more than the second half. Irrespective of it, the response has been welcoming.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who watched "Gunday" at its Mumbai premiere,called it "an adrenaline-packed movie".

"Gunday", made on an approximate budget of Rs.50 crore including promotions, reportedly hit over 2,000 screens across India.
