Piku has started Sunday (3rd day) at box office with bang. Film is reporting Houseful shows literally everywhere be it Metros or Interiors. Film has created havoc of sort and this is pleasantly surprising. In fact film is looking certain to enter double digit on Sunday. Even a 25 crore nett first weekend collection from the film can't be ruled out right now.
Piku although released in limited screens specially in multiplexes is attracting huge audiences to theaters. There is no denying fact that Deepika Padukone is a big star now at box office and her box office pull can't be ruled out.
Piku has started Sunday Morning with fire to record huge 70-80%+ occupancy in Morning shows itself. However film picked up huge and has recorded 90%+ occupancy for Noon and Afternoon shows. Story should be same for Evening shows also. Night shows may find some drop in occupancy but still occupancy should be in huge range.
Premium mulitplexes are recording occupancy above 95% which is just unprecedented for Noon and Afternoon shows. Even interior places are reporting occupancy around 80-85% which is big. In fact till last report, most of the shows for the day are reported Housefull. Piku has just taken box office by surprise and performing much above its potential at box office in first weekend. It will be interesting to see how film scores in weekdays. If same story continues there then we can expect the first Big Hit of the year in coming days.
