Prem Rata Dhan Payo Friday Box Office Collection Update:
The early trends suggest that Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has a record breaking hold in North circuits and Mumbai.
The morning shows were always meant to be lower than yesterday. The film has the best hold in Delhi/NCR and Mumbai which has around 60-65% occupancy. The single screens were rock solid in morning shows though more reports are still awaited from SS. It had a considerable drop in Rajasthan which had record breaking opening day. The overall occupancy in the morning shows is 50-55% which was 80% yesterday.
It is just unbelievable that a family oriented film had such kind of hold on 2nd day mornings shows.
PRDP has witnessed drop in the noon shows around 20%. This is due to the festival of Bhai dooj which is celebrated on the last day of Diwali. But there is nothing to worry as the advance booking is terrific for evening. Also the after a bumper opening day, all films tend to drop on 2nd day noon.
Update 4:30 PM:
After a drop in noon shows, PRDP has picked up very well. At some places the occupancy was even matching yesterday. The smaller centers which witnessed big drops in noon are showing excellent trend now. The multiplexes remained decent and can pick later.
Update 6 PM:
PRDP is having excellent occupancy in the early evening shows. As per the reports are coming film is housefull at single screens. The multiplexes are having more than 70% occupancy. The major portion of the audience consists of families. The youth is in less numbers than yesterday which can be a concern in longer run.
As expected the evening shows have started with packed houses at most of places. The occupancy is same like yesterday. This was all due to the solid advance booking. On the contrary film has witnessed some drops in East Punjab and Delhi as compared to yesterday. The film got the opening there due to presence of Salman, and then dropped today as the genre is not so hot there.
Update 9:30 PM:
The night shows are witnessing slight fall in major dominating circuits Delhi, UP, Punjab. Tomorrow is still a working day so it was expected.

First early estimates will be published in a new post on 10:30 PM and second on 12:30 PM. Stay tuned.
