Singham Returns is just extra-ordinary on 15th August, literally all across India. Film is registering Housefull shows in Morning, Noon and now also. Film is heading for Historic numbers on day one despite having 3600+ screens. Film has opened to bumper collection today in Morning shows with occupancy in the range of 70-75%. After that film has picked up well and has registered mind blowing occupancy of 95-100% for Noon shows. Film is sustaining extremely well right now and is still registering occupancy in the range of above 90-95% everywhere.
Film is now almost certain to challenge Kick First Day numbers and realistic chances are going over it despite having lesser screens. Although comparison of both films is not fair as Kick had Pre-EID release and today is National Holiday.
Film is doing havoc in places like Mumbai, Pune which is its stronghold. Film is also doing earth shattering business in Delhi, Gurgaon, Kanpur, Lucknow. Hyderabad is also fantastic after good start in Morning.
Had film taken earth shattering start in Morning shows, film would have been challenging 30 crore nett for today. But that looks little tough right now. Plus, there are few places in Southern India, where film is doing good, but not extra-ordinary.
Though it is too early to make any prediction for day one, but looking at trends film should go over 25 crore nett for today. Yes, there are chances that film might even touch 27-28 crore nett and for that Night shows are important. Also, major Single Screen report are also awaited for the day. Still 30 crore nett mark can't be ruled out for day as excellent report are coming in from single screen, whatever little we have right now.
