Bajrangi Bhaijaan Box Office Opening: Extra ordinary

Salman Khan has done it again. ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, released on a non-holiday during the Ramadan period when muslim audiences stay away from theatres, has taken an extra ordinary opening at the box office.

The opening is better than his last release ‘KICK’ at most places, which in itself is a massive achievement. Unlike ‘KICK’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ did not have the advantage of the mass-appealing action genre and none of the songs were chartbusters either.

The Kabir Khan directed film has opened well in every nook and corner of the country, including South where last week’s release ‘Baahubali’ is still performing well.

Surprisingly, even in muslim dominated areas, the opening was around the 65-70% range.  Looking at the occupancy for the morning and noon shows, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is almost certain to surpass the collections of ‘KICK’. It could post a much bigger 30 crore plus total because Saturday is a holiday, which should ensure that the film picks up at multiplexes Friday evening onwards.

‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is set for a huge weekend at the box office. Looking at the advance booking and early reports from the audience, the weekend numbers could surprise.

Opening day occupancy of films released in 2015. Do note that Salman Khan’s Kick has managed morning show occupancy of 70-75% even though it had the widest release (4000 – 4100 screens) so far this year.

  • @ javed
    go and watch urs srk movies as I remembers correctly last movie which I liked of srk is rnbdj as watch about 20 times but after all his movies r utter craps except ce who have some good if u dont like salman pls stop commenting here and start living in drms that srk have 3.7m fan and fan collected 1000 ww and raees 2000ww.

  • Only people not liking it are stupid, blunt and good – for- nothing Sarook fans.
    @javed and @sssapola Why don’t you dig up a hole and nose-dive in it?
    BB will easily cross Chennai Express Worldwide figure and HNY lifetime India collections(178 crores) in 7-8 days. ??
    EPIC INSULT for all SRK fans. ?

    First Aamir’s PK and now Salman’s BB, have caused more trauma for Sarookites due to higher collections and better script.

    Sarookites, plz don’t kill yourselves. We need you here at Indicine for our entertainment. Please! ?

  • Lol. Same thing was said during Kick! What happened later? Keya mila? Babaji ka thullua. Lololol

  • Worst film of 2015 so far. PRDP can overtake it. Those salmentals who were dreaming 30cr 1st day are feeling hot at their pichware. Without manipulation, 29cr will be out of reach.

  • This movie is visual treat. Can’t remember if I have ever seen such outstanding hindi movie it is such a well made movie ending is perfect

  • i have predicted 32cr opening day. my prediction gonna wrong this time because it gonna collects even more.

  • @sss:
    If 90cr budgeted BB bcm flop with 210cr collections then your king’s 120cr budgeted multistarer hny was a disaster with 180cr collections…LOL.
