Sonakshi Sinha's new film Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi "stayed strong" on Monday and earned Rs 13.83 crore, Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted. On Day 4 (Monday), Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi raked in Rs 2.05 crore. Sonakshi Sinha's film started on a low note but eventually picked pace over the weekend. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi collected close to Rs 10 crore over Saturday and Sunday. "Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi stays strong on Monday. Decline on Monday [vis-a-vis Fri]: 24.07%. Friday Rs 2.70 crore, Saturday Rs 4.03 crore, Sunday Rs 5.05 crore, Monday Rs 2.05 crore. Total: Rs 13.83 crore (India business)," Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Though the Mudassar Ali-directed film had a "fair hold" on Monday, the second Friday will be "crucial" for the film, Box Office Report stated. "It remains to be seen what happens over the course of the week and more crucially the second Friday. There will competition on Friday but it's not as if Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi needs huge footfalls on the second Friday, even with just 1 lakh people turning up it should get a decent final number," the report stated.

This Friday, two films will hit the screens - Stree and Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phirr Se. With the release of two anticipated films, it will be interesting to see whether Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi continues to keep its earnings consistent.
In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi one-and-a-half stars out of five. "Sonakshi does most of the heavy lifting, but the lightness of the film undermines her efforts. The high-on-enthusiasm Jassie Gill, too, is let down by a half-baked character. Jimmy Sheirgill, for once, is unable to rise above the script. Piyush Mishra hams his way through the film," he wrote.
Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is the sequel of 2016 comedy Happy Bhag Jayegi, which featured Abhay Deol, Diana Penty (Happy #1) and Ali Fazal. Directed by Mudassar Aziz, film also features Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal and Diana Penty.
