Both new releases Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Ab Tak Chhappan 2 has taken poor opening at box office on Friday. Both the film has managed to get good screens in India, and that is largely due to no big releases running except Badlapur last week.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha has managed little better opening, but still it is in poor range. Occupancy for Morning shows is just around 10-15% in multiplexes. Film need to pick up well in later half of the day if it has to put any kind of significant numbers for first day. Film will need good word of mouth to pick up from here on through the weekend.
Ab Tak Chhappan 2 has taken even poorer start at box office than Dum Laga Ke Haisha with opening of just around 5-10%. Occupancy is little better in Mumbai but rest of India is shocking. Even mumbai numbers are still below the mark.
Overall both films needs to pick up huge from here on. Looks like Badlapur might have again a good run in second week also as film has managed to retain good number of screens for this week.
