Hero has collected a very well 6.75 crore nett on Friday (1st day) at box office as actuals are arrived. Film has performed little better than our early estimates as mentioned yesterday and that is because single screens reports have come better.
Film has taken a fantastic start at box office considering film had new star cast and if film even holds well from here on then it has good chance of putting decent first weekend total. If film shows jump in collection than film will have a very good opening weekend total and almost making it a successful film in first week itself.
Film opened to 25% occupancy in Morning shows (Multiplexes and Single Screens combined). Film picked up here and there in Noon and Afternoon shows. Film picked up further to record occupancy of around 40%+ on average across India which is very good. Overall start of film is fantastic and let's see how it progresses through the opening weekend.
