Satyagraha has collected a very decent 11 crore nett on Opening Day (Friday) at box office. Satyagraha opened to average opening in Friday Morning shows. Film sustained well through the day and reported jump here and there for Friday. Overall collections for the day was decent considering it was a normal working day. But when film budget, star cast and release size is taken into consideration then collections could have been better.
Film started Friday Morning shows with occupancy of 30-40% on average. After that it sustained well and finally showed occupancy of 50-60%+ for Evening and Night shows. Film reported varied occupancy in Multiplexes and Single Screens. In some places occupancy was around 50-60%, whereas in some places it was 20-25%.
Satyagraha should show growth on Saturday and Sunday as weekend is progressing. Saturday growth will determine whether the word of mouth is good or not. Film will look for 30-35 crore nett weekend with such star cast and screen size.
