The countdown has started for Housefull 3. In a few hours film is going to hit the screens. Fans are expecting the film to be Akhsay's best opener and highest grosser.
Housefull 3 is releasing in India in 3700 screens. It is the biggest release of this year. Housefull 3 is also Akshay Kumar's widest release ever beating Singh Is Bling which was released in 3500 screens.
The screen count is huge and has increased the potential for the film to cross 20 crore. A good opening day is on the cards with a normal run. But a large screen count can backfire if the response is negative.
In overseas, Eros has planned a wide release of 670 screens which is not less than any other Bollywood biggie. Films like Bajiragi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo were released in 800 screens.
Housefull is a popular franchise in overseas and has fared well at the box office too.
