Both Ab Tak Chhappan 2 and Dum Laga Ke Haisha had a poor start on day one (Friday) at box office. Ab Tak Chhappan 2 has emerged slightly ahead of Dum Laga Ke Haisha as far as 1st day collection is concerned. But that is mainly due to more no. of screens former have got.
Ab Tak Chhappan 2 occupancy for day one is extremely poor and it looks like film will find really tough from here on to even collect a decent first weekend numbers. As per estimates Ab Tak Chhappan 2 has collected around 1.3-1.4 crore nett on 1st day which is extremely poor. Hope film picks up huge on Saturday (2nd day) and Sunday (3rd day) to have some respectable numbers at box office for opening weekend.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha enjoyed better occupancy on Friday than Ab Tak Chhappan 2. But numbers are still poor for the film. DLKH has collected around 1.1 crore nett for day one and now film needs huge pick up on Saturday and Sunday to have a decent first weekend.
Overall start of both new releases this Friday is poor and weekend looks extremely dismal from here on.
