Shaandaar First Day Occupancy Report
Shaandaar is looking at a good opening at the box office. Shaandaar will get the benefit of the holiday for Dusshera but the bigger picture will be how much is the benefit and what happens on Friday which is a normal day. Friday becomes very important as though there is a holiday on day one, the film is very unlikely to do that 20 crore nett or thereabouts opening so that a 30-40% fall the next day does not matter much. The film has a fresh cast of Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and the music may not be super hit but its done fairly well but on the other side its a Phantom film which is a negative as with multiplexes having expansion outside the metros, the audience there today is very aware who makes what especially as they are paying big money to watch films today so tend to go for clean entertainers. The promos may try to show it is that but the audience is too aware today and knows what is made by Phantom films. The public which ventures into multiplexes in Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Surat, Kanpur, Bhopal, etc will be aware that the Phantom banner makes bad films like Bombay Velvet and Lootera. Actually bad is not the correct word, it should be films that audiences in these core cities of India don’t care for.
For some these may even be good films as good and bad is basically just an opinion. This is the first time when Shahid is sharing screen with his father & sister together. With Alia too, he is coming first time & because of these reasons the actor is looking very much excited. Both the stars are positively trying to promote their movie among more & more people. These days they are appearing in many promotional activities for Shaandaar. There is no doubt, that the movie has very good hype among audience & expected to take a good start at box office. As per trade analysts, Shaandaar is capable to perform better at box office after release, also its craze among fans is good. The movie has received decent response for its advance booking & as per the report from sources, its first day overall occupancy would be around 50-60% on Indian screens. Opening day collection of the movie is predicted to be in between 9 – 10 crores*. Weekend performance depends on the word of mouth it will get from audience after release.
