Brothers has collected around 15.2 crore nett in 1st day (Friday) at box office as mentioned in our early trends yesterday. Thus, film has taken 2nd biggest opening of the year as expected after Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Film although started slow picked up decently through the day with each passing show. Film registered good occupancy from Evening onwards on occasion of Independence Day eve. Trade was expecting a bare minimum of 15 crore nett opening which is now passed by Brothers. Now film needs to show big jump on Saturday (Independence Day Holiday) and Sunday to put up a huge first weekend total.
Film has registered a decent occupancy of 45-50% for day one. Occupancy is decent considering film is released in wide screens. With today being Holiday occupancy will zoom up further. Brothers is chasing around 25 crore nett mark today considering 15th August is one of the biggest single days of box office. A business close to that will be very good. Anything above that will be simply outstanding.
