Hero has taken decent opening at box office on Friday (1st Day) Morning shows. Film has registered an occupancy of 20-25% in Morning shows on average as samples are received. Occupancy may be little lower but considering film face value and release size can be touted decent to good as film is getting wide release. Plus, today is normal working day. Film is bound to get jump from here on through the whole day specially from Evening onwards.
Buzz is that Hero is film of Salman Khan Production and that as helped it to get good screen count. Also, it is helping a bit to pull audiences to theaters. If we go by general trend film should at least record occupancy of around 40%+ from Evening onwards which will help it to put decent to good first day collection at box office.
