Ek Villain has taken good start at box office on first day (Friday) as film has opened to 45-50% occupancy in Multiplexes all across India. Film opening is very good and as it is working day today, expect business to further zoom up as day progresses. Single Screens are yet to start and hence, reports are awaited from there.
Film good music and good pre-release buzz has worked big time as film has managed such good opening at theaters. Film has opened to 50% occupancy in Mumbai in Morning shows. Occupancy for the same in Delhi is around 45-50%. In Gurgaon film has opened to 45% which is also great.
Opening of Ek Villain is better than recent releases Holiday and Humshakals specially in multiplexes. Holiday opened good in Single Screens and let's see whether Ek Villain can match or even better that in single screens or not.
Start of Ek Villain has ensured that film first day collection will be good and will be in double digit. How much the bigger collection is, will be mainly dependent on single screen business and film's performance in later half of the day. Stay tuned for further updates as day progresses.
