Tanu Weds Manu Returns has taken Bumper start on 1st day (Friday) at box office and has collected around 8.75 crore nett. This is simply great start by the film and in all likelihood opening has ensured Hit status for the film as it is made on controlled budget. Initial word of mouth of the film is good and expect film to hold well on Saturday also. Getting a big jump will be difficult as film has started on high on Friday itself. However realistically film might score double digit numbers on Sunday which is unthinkable for a film with such face value.
May has been kind for Bollywood as Gabbar, Piku and now TWMR has brought smiles to the faces of exhibitors. Coming to TWMR film is set to easily score over 25 crore nett weekend business now. It may close on 30 also if film holds well on Saturday and register good jump on Sunday. Looking at the opening of the film, it will achieve Hit status by the end of rist week itself. If occupancy is considered as a parameter than TWMR has taken the biggest opening of the year surpassing likes of Gabbar, Baby and Roy.
