Dangal is simply unstoppable at box office on opening Friday (1st day) despite today being a normal working day and real weekend starts tomorrow. Film has taken bumper start with occupancy reported around 60-65% for Morning shows. After that film has further picked up in Noon to register occupancy of 70%.
As per latest, film is recording huge occupancy in the region of 85-90% in Evening shows and creating havoc at ticket counters. Reports of Night shows are also excellent and occupancy is set to remain in similar level or even more. No doubt Dangal is heading for a historic first day now.
Occupancy Report of Dangal [Samples only] -
Morning - 60-65%
Noon - 70%
Evening - 85-90%
Only issue of Dangal is from the interiors. Film is doing good business there but lagging behind the metros and big cities. Whatever little samples we have right now from there average occupancy till last report filled is approx 60-65% occupancy for the day. That is absolutely not bad, but lower than that of big cities.
Early trend suggest Dangal first day collection is heading towards 30 crore nett mark. This is huge considering all release factor. However these are very early estimates from limited samples we have and hence actual may vary. Also, Night shows are yet to start off. hence final figure will vary accordingly. Thus, Dangal final figure may be higher or lower depending on how film fares in interiors for the day and in the Night shows. Still Dangal has taken a smashing start to the weekend.
