Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (PRDP) has created havoc at box office on Thusrday (1st day) as film has done Sold Out to near about Sold Out shows from first show to last show. Film has opened to earth shattering occupancy of 80-85% in Morning shows. After that film has just shot further up to record occupancy of 90-95%+ across all parts of India for rest of the day (Noon + Afternoon + Evening + Night). Reports are same for multiplexes and single screens. Story is same be it for big cities and interiors.
PRDP has lived upto its hype and performed to its potential on National Holiday. Now question will arise whether film can hold on Friday (working day) and Saturday or not after such a strong start. If film holds well on day 2 and day 3 then definitely we will expect a unprecedented extended first weekend on cards.
As for first day collection of PRDP. Though it is too early to make a predict as huge single screen data is awaited. But still looking at the samples film should collect in the region of 40 -42 crore nett. Final numbers may even go higher than that if reports from interiors are excellent which will arrive later on. So, well begun is half done. Now let's see where PRDP goes from here on.
