Katti Batti Opening Day Box Office Collection
Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut starrer “Katti Batti” had a decent opening at the box office. The film started on a slow note, but the occupancy picked up in the evening and night shows, which helped the film to score a better opening day box office collection. “Katti Batti” was released on 18 September in India in approximately 1,200 screens. And from that 1,200 screens, the love story minted Rs 5.28 crore. The film, directed by Nikhil Advani, opened with only 15 to 20% occupancy, but the mixed reviews helped the occupancy increase in the evening shows. After a fair opening, “Katti Batti” is now expected to have a decent opening weekend at the domestic box office. The film opened well in metro cities, including Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi-NCR and other circuits. But the collections from Gujarat- Saurashtra, Rajasthan, CP Berar, CI, UP, and Bihar were below the mark. The numbers that Katti Batti has earned are lesser than Nikhil’s last week release Hero which had brought in 6.85 crore. However, the fact remains that the Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty film had seen a much wider release.
Katti Batti Saturday Box Office Business
Still, since Kangna is on a roll and her Tanu Weds Manu Returns had brought in 8.75 crore on the opening Friday, the expectation were higher. For Imran Khan though, these are fair numbers as his last release Gori Tere Pyaar Mein had seen a disastrous opening day of 3 crore. Today, the film is expected to witness considerable increase in its occupancy rate. This movie is mostly watched by young students and popular in metropolitan cities. It can get 22% occupancy on an average. The makers of the movie expected a lot because of being Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. This is so because she got many positive comments and reviews for her earlier films like Tanu Weds Manu Returns, etc. But the condition may get better in the subsequent days. Meanwhile, the film has raked in around 5.48 crores on Day 2 i.e. 1st Saturday, taking its total to 10.76 crores at the Box Office. The box office performance of the film has surprised the trade as well as the industry pleasantly. Katti Batti should do healthy opening weekend business of over 20 crores at the Box Office in India.
