Film has registered 20-25% of Advance Booking for opening day. Advances in Delhi is good with 30% recorded there. Advances for Gurgaon is around 20%+. In Mumbai advances are around 17-18% which is little lower than average figure.
Humpty Sharma is set to release on 2200-2300 approx screens in India. Looking at trends film should take decent opening of 30-40% and after that should show good growth in later half of the day. If film receives positive word of mouth, then it should show further good jump through the first weekend.
Looking at film pre-release buzz and film from the banner of Dharma Productions, HSKD will at least aim for 30+ crore nett first weekend. Anything above that will be bonus for the film. But anything less than that will be a worry as recent films of same scale 2 States and Ek Villain has managed good opening and subsequent good running at box office.
