Toilet Ek Prem Katha Day 1 Box Office Collection Update: Finally, the much-awaited film of Akshay Kumar TEPK has hit the screens today. The film has been released in approx 2900-3000 screens. The early trends suggest that film has taken a slow start at the box office. Check out Toilet Ek Prem Katha collection report for the 1st day.
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was up to 20-25% in all over India which is low. The film has opened better in single screens and masses as compared to metros. Most of Akshay's recent films have opened better in multiplexes as compared to single screens. But TEPK had less appeal for the urban audience so it was expected.
The opening is below expectations though the advance booking had already suggested the same yesterday. Advance was started late at places which might affect Toilet Ek Prem Katha collection. It is yet again another underperformer for Akshay Kumar as far the opening was concerned. The opening day is likely to be the lowest for Akshay Kumar in recent years. Akshay's initial pull has been declining since last few films as the actor has lost a chunk of his core fan following in masses. But from the film's perspective and appeal, it is a fair start. There is a big holiday on Monday and if the word of mouth is just about decent, it will sail through at the box office.

As far the opening day is concerned, it is likely to be in the double digit figures. The controlled release has ensured that there will be growth in the evening. Also, it was more looking like a content oriented film so the evening crowd will come at multiplexes.
Noon Shows Report:
TEPK has shown growth in the noon shows which was expected after a slow start. The multiplexes have started to pick up and there will be further growth in the evening. But probably the film will need a massive turnaround in the evening for a good opening day number. This happened with another Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift and the actor will be hoping to repeat the same. Though that film had received excellent reviews.
In terms of occupancy, the film has opened lower than films like Half Girlfriend and Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
