Bajirao Mastani Friday Box Office Collection Update:
2015 has proven to be an average one for Bollywood. There have been only two blockbuster films Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. While there have been too many disappointments like Brothers, Tevar and Tamasha etc.
Now all eyes are now on today’s release Shahrukh Khan starrer Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
Bajirao Mastani was released today in around 2300 screens. The early trends suggest that film has taken a good start.
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was around 45% in all over India which is good. The opening was better in multiplexes. The best start was in Mumbai and Pune with having 60% and 80% occupancy respectively. The film was below par in Delhi and East Punjab as Dilwale has taken a huge lead there. The Gujarat circuit is doing well but should have been much better due to genre.
Bajirao Mastani has shown decent growth in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Despite the protests, the film is doing peritoneal business in Pune. Delhi has improved a bit too as the occupancy is around 60% there. But it remained low in West Bengal, CI and East Punjab.
The film has done well in the afternoon shows. It has sustained very well in all places. Now the evening shows are very crucial for Bajirao Mastani as it has to show huge growth.
Bajirao Mastani has shown considerable growth in Mumbai and Pune in the evening shows. The film has found huge appreciation here. But surprisingly it is not doing as well in Gujarat as it was expected. The North belt remained below average. The film is heading for a 10 crore 1st day and have to pick up over the weekend.
Stay tuned for more updates.
Bajirao Mastani should improve in the noon and evening shows to have any chance against Dilwale. The film has received positive reviews, so we can expect that it will recover well from here.
Bajirao Mastani had got last minute screenings at many cinemas so the advance booking was affected. And also there are protests going on against the film in Maharashtra. So keeping in mind these factors, the opening is very good.
Going by the early trends, it seems that Bajirao Mastani 1st day collection can be around 10 crore. It can go higher with huge growth in the evening shows.
