Dilwale 1st Day Box Office Collection
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer “Dilwale” released in theatres with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s “Bajirao Mastani” on Friday, and as expected the former has taken a lead at the box office. “Dilwale” is the last big release of 2015 and thus the buzz around the film is massive. The film was expected to have a grand start at the box office and is living up to the expectations. “Dilwale” opened to packed houses worldwide. “Dilwale” and “Bajirao Mastani” were released in the UAE-GCC market on Thursday, a day before India release and Shah Rukh’s film emerged as a clear winner. The romantic action entertainer opened to full houses at the UAE-GCC box office on Thursday and in India on Friday. The film opened with more than 70 percent occupancy on its opening day at the box office.
In India also, the occupancy report of “Dilwale” and “Bajirao Mastani” is the same. As reported earlier, the advance booking counter for “Dilwale” opened on Sunday and within a few hours several shows went houseful, especially in the North circuit. Shah Rukh’s film is leading in East Punjab, Nizam, Andhra, Mysore, Gujarat, Mumbai, Pune and East India with huge margin. On the other hand, “Bajirao Mastani” has a good hold on screens in Maharashtra circuits. “Dilwale” has taken a strong opening at the box office, but the collection will not be similar to Salman Khan’s “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” as it was released in more than 18,000 screens compared to “Dilwale” 12,000 screens, Box Office India reports.
It seemed today as if there was something like fair or festival outside the cinema halls and multiplexes after looking at the audience rush outside the places. First day of Dilwale has really got too favorable viewers response. It opened with tremendous figures and by noon the income reported was mind blowing. Evening shows contributed even more occupancy and earning and the total First Day Collection of Dilwale in India is recorded at 21 Crores today. Evening cold weather hampered movie’s late shows business but not to worry; the business will get covered in coming days.
Christmas time has also made Dilwale to gain an advantage of higher audience feedback and choice. It seemed as if all the other movies running before it lost their seats at all just in one day. Such fantastic and record breaking first day collection have cleared that the movie is going to reveal more of its colors in the coming days of the weekend with even more high records. Directed by Rohit Shetty, “Dilwale” features Shah Rukh, Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon in lead roles.
