Roy has taken decent to good opening at box office on Friday (1st day) Morning shows specially in multiplexes. Early reports from samples suggest film has taken an opening of 35-40% which is good considering today is normal working day and film will only grow from here on.
To put in perspective film has taken better opening then Baby which was released around 20 days back. This is good and little surprising considering the fact that film is promoted with face value of Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez. Yes, there is Ranbir Kapoor in the film playing a dynamic and title role, but he was not seen much in promotion. Looks like his die-hard fans are eagerly waiting for his film to release in big screen.
Film has opened to good occupancy of 40% in Delhi in Morning shows. Even in Mumbai opening is decent to good with around 35% reported there. In Pune also film opened big with around 50% occupancy reported there. Kanpur and Lucknow also opened decent to good.
