Azhar has started Friday (1st day) slowly at box office in Morning shows. However film gained momentum with each passing show and has reported good occupancy for Evening and Night shows. Film opened to 20% occupancy in Morning shows which is on lower side. Considering Friday being normal working day and Azhar getting wide release occupancy is decent.
Film picked up from there on to register occupancy of around 28-30% for Noon and Afternoon shows. However film picked up big from Evening and recorded occupancy of around 45-50% which is very good. Thus, good jump from Evening has ensured a solid first day collection for Azhar.
Occupancy Report of Azhar for Friday (Samples only) -
Morning - 20%
Noon - 28-30%
Evening-Night - 45-50%
Though it is too early to make any prediction for the day. But looking at the samples we have, film should collect in the region of 7-8 crore nett. However these are estimation from samples we have and actual may vary.
