PK screen allocation is still going on. But looking at trends film is set to get easily the biggest ever release at least in multiplexes. Report of screen allocation in single screen is also good and will be touch and go with Happy New Year there. Overall film is eyeing biggest ever release with a screen count of 5000+ Worldwide. Film is aiming for 4300-4500 screens in India and another huge 800+ in Overseas.
Earlier big release Kick is screened in around 4100 screens in India, whereas Happy New Year got around 4200 screens in India. PK is up by around 5% as far screening is concerned from HNY looking at early screen allocations.
What got in favour of PK is that its running time is decent. So many additional shows can be tweaked in between and exhibitors are doing out most for that. PK is releasing on normal working day and if picked up with word of mouth, expect 1st Sunday to be historic at box office.
Expected PK Screen Count - India: 4300-4500, Overseas: 800+. Total: 5100-5300+.
