Dangal 1st Day Box Office Collection: The last release of the year, Aamir Khan's Dangal hit the screens today. There were many expectations attached to the film as Aamir was coming back after two years. Well, it seems that the film has got an excellent opening at the box office. Check out Dangal collection report for the opening day.
As per the official figuress, Dangal 1st day box office collection will be 29.78 crore. The night shows in most of the places have gone very well despite the fact tomorrow is a working day. Especially in Delhi, there were housefull shows reported even at night. The growth in evening/night is indicating that Saturday and Sunday will be huge.
Unlike other biggies of Bollywood, Dangal has varied performance at difference places. The occupancy was terrific in metros, very good to good in tier 2 cities while average to poor in interiors. Dangal has an excellent start in the morning shows as the overall occupancy was 60% which was the second best of this year. The opening was huge in North India in both at single screens and multiplexes. It got a little jump in noon shows, however, started to witness big gains in the later half of the day. Dangal was rocking in metros as the occupancy was as high as 80-85%. This usually happens with films which are targetted at the family audience.

The best performing circuits were Delhi/NCR, East Punjab and UP. It was also very good in South India due to the lack of competition. The film was poor in Gujarat belt and also average in East India. Though Aamir Khan has more fan following in Mumbai and down South, however, Dangal should be driven by North India due to the local feel.
Dangal 1st day collection will be the second highest opening day of 2016. The film will only fall short of Salman Khan's Sultan which had a partial holiday. It will be interesting to see if Dangal can cross 30 crores to become the second film of 2016 to do so.
Dangal box office collection on day 1 will also be the second highest ever for any Aamir Khan starrer as it has beaten PK opening record. The film has received excellent response from the audience so far. But the performance in mass circuits will be a major concern as it needs universal appreciation if it is to become a mega hit.
Interestingly the advance booking for Saturday and Sunday is very high and is the best of the year. This will definitely give a huge boost to Dangal collection which can cross 35 crore on both days. As Christmas and New Year holidays will fall on Sunday, it should collect the maximum amount in the first weekend.
