Hate Story 3 has taken good start at box office on Friday (1st day). Also, good news is film is released in wide screen across all parts of India and it has every chance of doing great business. Hate Story 3 has opened to good occupancy of around 30% in Morning shows. After that film has decent jump in Noon time to record occupancy of around 40%. This is great considering film face value, budget and genre. Plus, today being a working day, with film getting wide screen release such start has ensured a good first day total at box office.
Hate Story 3 may show limited jump from Evening onward despite weekend is round the corner as family audiences stay away from such genre films. Still if film holds well from here on expect a good first day total. Overall film start is good.
