Piku has collected around 4.75-5 crore nett on 1st day (Friday) as per estimates. Collection are good considering film is released around in 1300 screens in India. Plus Friday was a normal working day. This is mainly happened due to very good business of the film from Evening onward mainly in high end multiplexes.
Piku took very slow start in Morning shows with occupancy of around 15-20% in Morning shows. After that film had decent pick up in Noon shows to record occupancy in about 25%. Still occupancy is in lower side. However film picked up big in premium plexes and recorded occupancy in around 50%+ from Evening onward. At places occupancy is recorded 60% or above in Night shows.
Going by the trend film should register good jump on Saturday (2nd day) and also on Sunday (2nd day). Film has started well considering the film genre and needs to push well now to put up good first weekend total at box office.
