Screen allocation for Gabbar is Back starring Akshay Kumar and Shruti Haasan is still going on. Numbers are keep adding up and looks like final count will be known by tomorrow (Friday) Morning. Film is getting one of the biggest release in single screens across India. Earlier fear was there that because of running of The Avengers - Age of Ultron film might find tough to get good screen count in multiplexes. But that is not the case anymore now. Even multiplexes are allocating good amount of screens to Gabbar for this Friday. Early sample suggest film will have a wide release in multiplexes also.
Coming to Gabbar screen count. Film is certain to have screen count of above 3000 in India by the release time. If film finds more allocation of screens in multiplexes, then screen count can go beyond 3300-3400 screens and even touch 3500. That will be more than enough for Gabbar to rock this May Day at box office.
Coming to advance booking of Gabbar. It is just started yesterday. Still one day to go. But from sample we have received advances are decent in multiplexes. Around 16-17% tickets are Sold out for Friday when samples from Delhi and Mumbai are taken into account. Friday is Holiday and that is also helping in advances for sure. Generally Akshay Kumar films report lesser advances and is more dependent on spot booking. So, any amount of ticket sold as advances is good for the film. So, early trend suggest Gabbar might take a decent to good opening on Box Office this Friday. Stay tuned for more update on Gabbar.
