Gunday has opened on Sunday (Third Day) with occupancy on par with Friday (Opening Day) from samples received. Film has opened to around 40% occupancy which is ok. However Sunday generally opens good and looks like film will struggle to match with Friday numbers as Friday Evening and Night shows were almost 80%+ across India.
Gunday had a superb start on First Day collecting well over 15 crore nett. But film registered a significant drop of around 25% on Saturday. Sunday should be better than Saturday for sure, but whether it can reach Friday numbers is to be seen.
Looking at Gunday opening on Friday an first weekend collection of around 45 crore nett was almost certainty. But drop in Saturday and no bigger jump on Sunday has made sure that film will settle in the range of 40 crore nett, which is still a big total considering film face value, release size or budget.
