As mentioned in our earlier update on Raja Natwarlal, film has managed below average first day numbers. Film has collected an estimated 5-5.25 crore nett for Friday and that is below mark considering two factors. First it is Emraan Hashmi film which has decent following in mass dominated centers. Plus, yesterday was Holiday in many parts of India on occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
Raja Natwarlal got decent release size of 1800-1900 screens across India yesterday. Film opened to poor response in Morning shows with opening of around 20-25%. Film showed no progress in Noon-Afternoon shows as occupancy remained in the region of 25-30%. From Evening onward film picked up a little bit but still remained in 30-35% occupancy level which is again below the mark.
Raja Natwarlal now needs to show good growth on Saturday (2nd day) and Sunday (3rd day) to put up decent numbers for the weekend. Jump should be huge at least for one of those days mentioned if not both. Film should now at least aim for 20 crore nett first weekend which should have been a cakewalk for Emraan Hashmi starrer film. For that mark also film needs huge boost now. Hope film manages good growth through the weekend, otherwise it will be big problem in coming days.
We will soon update about Second Day Collection of the film. Stay tuned.
