Backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment, the film had crossed the 40 crore mark in just five days — unusual for a film with a cult following. It also saw consistent growth in the opening weekend.

Internationally, too, the film has been doing great and has minted over Rs 5 crore, its key markets being the USA and the UAE.

All the cast members reprise their roles in the second installment of the Fukrey Franchise, which revolves around two boys — Hunny and Chucha and their amusing encounters.
