Rustom and Mohenjo Daro advance booking have begun at most of the centers. At multiplexes, Rustom and Mohenjo Daro will get an equal number of shows. At single screens, MD will be ahead.
The early trends suggest that Rustom has taken a lead over Mohenjo Daro in terms of advance booking. There is still one more day left but now it has become a real possibility that Rustom can have a better opening day.
Rustom has a good advance booking considering the screen count and genre. The best start has come in Delhi/NCR which is considered as Akshay Kumar's stronghold. It is no surprise that Rustom has sold more tickets at multiplexes.
Even in Maharashtra belt, it has got a good start. That can be attributed to the fact that thriller films tend to do well here. At some of the multiplexes, the morning shows are sold out. In Kolkata, Rustom has got limited screen but still the advance booking is poor. The same is the case with Central India and some of other smaller centers. Tamil Nadu had a decent start.
Despite the fact that Akshay commands his main following in masses, Rustom is taking the lead at multiplexes. The actor seems to have earned good reputation there due to his earlier films Baby and Airlift. Plus Rustom also looked like a multiplex oriented film whose trailer was well received.

Overall it has sold around 15-17% tickets which is lower than Rustom by a slight margin.
So far Rustom is taking the lead over MD. It is just about the star power and genre which will decide the better opening at different circuits. Akshay is a bigger star in North India and Rustom genre appeals to Maharashtra belt and metros. At these places, Rustom will have a good start. On the hand, Hrithik Roshan has more fans in urban centers and the genre is always super hot in down South.
In the meantime, East India continues to have a poor run. So far the advance booking of both films suggests that none of them will take excellent/bumper opening. At the end, it will depend on the word of mouth. There is still one day left so we can hope that the advance booking will pick up.
