M.S. Dhoni - The Untold Story has rocked box office on Friday (1st day) as film reported huge occupancy all through the day. Film has collected an estimated 21 crore nett approx. Datas are pouring in and hence actual may vary.
M.S. Dhoni started the day with opening in the region of 40% which is big for Non-holiday release. After that film showed jump in Noon shows to register occupancy of around 50% which is again great. Film further picked up from Evening and registered occupancy of around 70% for rest of the day shows. Film registered many housfull shows on day one itself, with still Saturday and Sunday to follow.
With such high scoring of the film on Friday, it now needs to hold well on Saturday (2nd day). Even a drop at few places will do. However film is carrying big cost and hence, ideally it should perform on Friday level. If film performs on par with Friday or even better than it has a big chance of entering Hit zone despite cost riding on higher side.
