Happy New Year on Thursday has started slow at box office in Morning shows. Yes, film has picked after that in Noon time but jump is not huge. This is very much normal considering film had a gigantic first weekend and good weekdays from Monday till Wednesday. Today being working day and last day of first week such drop is pretty normal. There are chances that film may see significant drop on 2nd Friday (tomorrow) also. After that film should pick up well from 2nd Saturday onward to pick up good numbers for second weekend.
Now coming to Thursday (7th Day) Collection update, HNY has open to 15-20% occupancy in Morning shows. Film registered a drop of 10-15% from yesterday Morning shows which is pretty normal. As for Noon shows film is registering an occupancy in the region of 20-25%. Drop in Noon shows from yesterday is about 15-20%. HNY has seen jump from evening onward as family audiences have come out in numbers. Hope same happens for today also and film picks up in Night shows.
