Here is the latest bulletin on Chennai Express Saturday (Second Day) collections at Indian Box office. Film has opened to a very good 70% occupancy in the Morning shows all over India. After that CE has sustained well through the day and now registering housefull boards again from afternoon shows in most places. As per latest report CE is reporting an occupancy of around 80-85%+ from afternoon shows all over India. That means another huge day is on progress for Chennai Express.
Chennai Express registering an occupancy of 85% in Delhi City in Afternoon and Evening shows (Morning and Noon shows - 60%). In Mumbai occupancy for the same is around 83% (Morning and Noon shows - 65-70%). In Gurgaon occupancy for the same is around 90-95% (Morning and Noon shows - 85%). In Hyderbad occupancy is all time high with 95%+ from Morning shows.
We are still to received the single screens report. Single Screens played havoc on Friday all across India and it will be very difficult to emulate that mark. From the samples received CE has sustained well from yesterday. Yes, there is drop at places but that is not huge. Though it is too early to make any statement. But going by the early trends CE should collect in the vicinity of 25 crore nett for Saturday. This is huge. This is just an estimated number for those who are asking, actuals may differ.
Chennai Express has collected around 39+ crore nett till now (Thursday Paid Preview + Friday). And, yes, from early trends we can easily assume that Opening Weekend record is going to be shattered by a big margin and new records will be made.
