Azhar has taken slow to decent start at box office on Friday (1st day). Film opened to 20% occupancy in Morning shows. Opening is better in single screens, whereas multiplexes is on lower side. After that film has reported decent jump in Noon to record occupancy of around 28-30%. News from mass dominated centers is better than big cities and metros.
Azhar is getting very good release in 2200 screens approx and even with decent occupancy could post solid total for the day. There will be jump from Evening onwards as weekend is approaching. If jump is good in later part of the day then expect a respectable first day total for Azhar.
