Heroine has opened well at the box office on Friday, with around 60% occupancy (all India) for the morning shows at multiplexes.
The response has been fabulous in Delhi/NCR (75%), followed by Mumbai (65%). The advance booking for the night shows is good, even though the reports are mixed.
Heroine is likely to put up bigger numbers than last week’s Barfi (8.5 crore), as UTV has opted for a wider release this week.
The Kareena Kapoor starrer has been made on a budget of 32 crores (including print and marketing) and should put up healthy numbers for the weekend. Monday will be crucial as both the reviews and response from the audience is mixed.
Stay tuned for all the Heroine Box office updates.
