Ek Villain is registering decent occupancy on 2nd Friday (8th day) at box office from early reports. Film has retained around 65% screens from last week, which is great news despite new releases. Second good news is that film has open to around 20% occupancy in Morning-Noon shows today. As jump is expected in Evening-Night shows such start is good for a film in to its 2nd week. Third good news is new releases open to dull collection and weekend crowd might be tempted to watch Ek Villain this week again.
Ek Villain is registering occupancy of around 20-25% in Delhi in Morning-Noon shows today. For the same occupancy is around 15% in Gurgaon and Mumbai.
Ek Villain has collected approx 76.5 crore nett in first week. Film needs another 23.5 crore nett to touch 100 crore magical figure and that is absolutely possible for the film in this week itself. If that happens who knows film might challenge for highest grosser of the year. That is excellent considering film genre, face value. Ek Villain is a Huge HIT at box office and business from second week onwards will decide where it stands in HIT zone in coming days.
