Ajay Devgan’s Singham has opened to a bumper response at single screens (both in big cities and smaller towns), but the start was slow at multiplexes. The all-India opening is likely to be about 70% which would mean collections in the range of 8 – 10 crores.
Singham is almost assured of the second spot in the biggest openers of the year after Ready, which opened well at both single screens and multiplexes.
Word-of-mouth is good and collections should remain strong throughout the weekend. The film released late afternoon at several multiplexes due to the dispute. So while the Friday numbers are expected to be slightly lower than predicted, Saturday and Sunday should witness huge jump in business.
Will Saturday collections improve over Friday, like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara last week or will the usual trend of Saturday’s being slightly lower than Friday continue?
