Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara has taken an Housefull start on Thursday as predicted in our earlier box office reports. Film has just done whatever possible business just on around 1200 screens all India. It has collected around 11+ crore nett on Thursday (Opening Day) despite limited screenings as per estimates. Final number may vary and may be even bigger, once whole India report is received. This is just unimaginable number considering the screen size for Thursday.
Film has surpassed all expectations and is the best opening ever of Akshay Kumar starrer if one checks the occupancy report. OUATIMD took a earth shattering start on Thursday Morning shows with 80-90%+ occupancies everywhere. From Noon shows, OUATIMD was just Housefull in every nook and corner of the country. In fact there was shortage of tickets and many people returned empty handed. Film also got huge benefit of National Holiday, but collections would have been further mindblowing if it had released on significant screens.
Real test for OUATIMD will start as early as Friday, which is a working day. Hence, collections will see a drop. But film should pick up as weekend is approaching and should again do well on Saturday and Sunday. Yes, there is a good chance of OUATIMD to collect well on Friday as well as many avid moviegoers are waiting to see the movie first day first show and due to reasons could not watch it on Thursday.
