Airlift Friday Box Office Collection Update (1st Day):
The recent release Dilwale and Wazir has not performed up to expectations. Though Bajirao Mastani has turned to be a major success but that is mainly because of strong word of mouth. When it comes to initials, no film could take big opening except from Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in recent time.
Now all eyes are now on today’s big release Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift. It was released today in around 2600 screens. The early trends suggest that film has taken a decent opening.
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was around 35% in all over India which is decent. The opening was very good in Maharashtra despite facing competition from Kya Kool Hai Hum 3. Delhi and East Punjab also improved after a slow start. Normally the thriller genre does not do well in these markets but Akshay has a huge fan following here.
As expected the opening was better at multiplexes. The single screens had a fair start but they have to improve now though the samples were limited. The film has to show good growth from now. Luckily the early reports are on the positive side. The opening is better than Akshay Kumar starrer Baby which was released in the same period.
Airlift has shown growth in the noon shows. The occupancy was in the range of 45%. The growth has mainly come at the multiplexes while single screens remained at the same pace. It is good sign as the film has found appreciation.
Akshay Kumar starrer is showing huge upward trend in the evening shows. The reviews and word of mouth is spreading which has resulted in higher occupancy at plexes. The big cities Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata are rocking. But it is slow in small centers and has not picked up much. Nonetheless the film is set for a very good opening day.
Stay tuned for night shows update.
Going by early trends it looks like that Airlift 1st day collection should easily cross 10 crore and can even touch 12 crore. The final figure will depend upon how it performs in the evening and night shows.
The film is largely dependent on word of mouth. Normally these type of films tend to improve in the evening shows. So we can expect that it will happen to Airlift also. We will continue to update this page throughout the day. So bookmark this page and keep visiting.
