Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has created history as it has collected around 40.25 crore nett on Thursday (1st day) at box office. This is from Hindi version only. Datas are still pouring in for Telugu and Tamil and it is estimated to be in the region of 1.5 crore nett approx. Thus, film combined total collection for day one is around 41.75-42 crore nett as we have already reported it last night in our early estimates.
PRDP has thus just started box office with bang and now zooming fast towards a huge opening weekend. Film on Thursday opened to 85% occupancy in Morning shows. After that film has reported over 90%+ occupancy for rest of the day which is simply terrific. PRDP is not an action entertainer genre, so such kind of numbers are even more fantastic.
PRDP needs to hold well on Friday (2nd day) and Saturday (3rd day). If film manages to do well then it may have a good run at box office in coming days. Overall start is fantastic and let's hope that film only shine from here on.
