Toilet Ek Prem Katha Day 1 Box Office Collection Update

Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha has opened to decent occupancy at the box office on Friday, with the average all-India occupancy lower than ‘Jolly LLB 2’ and in the same range as ‘Airlift’ which released in January last year. ‘Airlift’ had a much better start at multiplexes, while ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ is better at smaller centres.

The occupancy at multiplexes was low on Friday morning, so the film has huge potential for growth as the day progresses – depending on the kind of response the content of the film gets.

The level of business in the morning suggests Day 1 collections of around 10-11 crore, a number that should go higher with increase in occupancy noon onwards. ‘Airlift’ and ‘Rustom’ had huge jumps at multiplexes, ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ would need to show similar upward trend to put up a good Day 1 total.

Among 2017 films, it’s the 8th best opening of the year after ‘Bahubali 2’, ‘Raees’, ‘Tubelight’, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, ‘Jolly LLB 2’ and ‘Half Girlfriend’. It’s better than ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’ at single-screens and smaller centres, while the biopic took a better start at multiplexes.

‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ is yet another film this year that hasn’t got a strong initial. Word of mouth will decide the fate of the film.



  • Movie is getting average to good let’s hope another 100 cr for man army for Bollywood.

    • Do you really know what “one man army” means ?

      Akshay doesn’t even stand in comparison with the top 3 superstars in bollywood, so where does one man army come from. There is a certain Aamir khan, whose one movie gross is sum of 5 to 6 Akshay movies and his last movie worldwide collections surpasses Akshay’s whole decade collections put together and then there is Salman who is consistent with blockbusters year after year. Akshay’s highest gross is not even 150, which is lesser than Ranbir and Ranveer movies.

      There is lot of unwanted hype in trade and media for an actor who doesn’t even give good openings nor lifetime collections, so why should he be called one man army, who just about in the last couple of years has started to be consistent. Akshay in the last 25 years doesn’t even have a single highest grossing movie for a year nor ATBB. He can never be compared boxoffice wise to the Khans not even Hrithik for that matter.

      • Bc look at the total collections of all Akshay Kumar movies are 3000 cr + at the domestic box office amir is no where near this figure

  • With the best trailer of the year (hindi films) Toilet should have had opened well..
    Considering film has universal appeal, desi feel which is working big times now and then some good costars :)

  • It surely collect 12 crores on Friday , 14 crores on Saturday and 16 crores on Sunday
    Weekend collection 42 crores
    Monday collection 7 crores
    Tuesday ( holiday) 17 crores
    Total 5 days collection 66 crores
    Week collection – 80 crores

  • All superstars except Aamir have had their releases
    Only 1 excellent opener Raees

    JHMS was urban romcom
    Crap mini trails
    Tepk is a universal movie with Desi taste

    Dare anyone say SRK is over

    In his worst phase SRK holds the only star with excellent opening out of 4 superstars

    1 good desi massy entertaining film
    SRK will be back

    • every films which fails they say screen count off topic roc com lack of stars bad script and blame production and trailer s too & compare to Salman film which success at Box office they say all is good for the film and high price blah blah are u out of ur mind guys srk is over but his stardom and aura can’t beat by any actor even other too but accept the fact Salman is very hardworking to match up with Ak & srk all guys are bashing him why??? there is no one who re-establish the superstardom after tremendous failures think abt it I like 3 Khan’s even akki is also NYC in his career with realese of 3 -4 films a yr is not joking

    • JHMS did 60 crores lifetime how is srk a superstar? He could not even match collections of rockstar released 6 years back

      • opening defines stardom :)
        content defines Lifetime total..

        Raees with clash opened with 20.3cr and then Jolly with solo release opened with 12cr..

        JHMS opening occupancy was 37.5% overall and Toilet opening occupancy is 20% :)

        By Saying SRK is over you’re proving that Akki (who is having his best phase ever) is not able to beat SRK even in his worst phase….well that’s true and glad to know that :)

    • SRK Rock on Rock
      BADSHAH to BADSHAH hota hai
      ALLAH ne IZZAT di hui hai ALLAH ke di hui IZZAT kon chheen sakta hai.

      Ye ULLU k patthhay to aj aye hen industry may

  • Continue The film is inspired by a true story, but little that it offers by way of insight rings true. Some of the dialogues are cringe-worthy, the drama gratingly shrill and the solutions utterly facile.

    The intent of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha may be commendable. The execution is hugely hamfisted. When a Bollywood filmmaker assumes the role of a cheerleader for a government campaign on whose efficacy the jury is still out, you know you’ve been had.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is as avoidable as what it rightly rails against – open defecation.

  • Airlift released in 2200 screens, TEPK 3000 screens and both opened similar still 10-11?? Lol indicine

    With similar occupancy to airlift it shoud do 13CR due to 800 more screens .

  • Meanwhile, JHMS 1st week collection is 57 cr and lifetime is looking at 62-65 cr which is less than Irfan Khan’s Hindi medium and RK’s Tamasha… Distributors of JHMS are on streets now due to Flopstar Saroook.. He has 3 disasters in last 2 years- Dilwale, Fan and now JHMS…

  • Srk hoped that history will repeat itself.jhms will do to toilet what chennai express did wid ouatimd BT sadly is baar baazi ulti ho srk said kismat badi kutti cheez hoti hai sali kabhi bhi palat jati hai.

  • My prediction even though I m an akki fan
    First day:11 to 12
    First weekend:40 CR’s
    First week:65 CR’s
    Fbo:100 plus if n only if public accepts it.

  • This guy has been struggling for a bumper opening since TMK.Making movies just for earning profits and coming across as a patriot
    Indian audience doesn’t deserve movies like JHMS.They deserve only movies like Toilet.You need to have a brain and intellect to understand a brilliant film like JHMS.After 10 years it’d be remembered as one of the finest romantic movie ever made.Srk should better move to Hollywood where the Audience are matured and appreciate his classic movies.

  • And akki fans compare akki with khans,it took 20%opening in 2990screen, but due to tax free status in up it will collect upto 10cr considering wom not even close to airlift so that kind of growth is not India gross will be 12cr which is less than half of tubelight (28cr), even jhms India gross was 19•5cr with release similar to toilet.Now akkians will bark tubelight was released on 4400screens, Bhai Jo movie 2900screens mein 20%opening leta hai wo 4400screens mein toh 10%ka opening lega
    Tubelight despite taking the worst opening in last 7years for salman recorded 37•5% occupancy.
    So don’t disrespect khans they are the biggest.Respect

    • Then why are they failing ? Akshay is doing multiple movies a year. The moment srk tried to do more than one movie he failed

      Plus akki doesn’t care about holiday releases

  • ” ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ is yet another film this year that hasn’t got a strong initial. ”
    It was never supposed to be one film that takes opening.
    Content driven!

  • Akshay Kumar movies still don’t open big. His movies usually carry good word of mouth as seen in last few years and hence chances are it will grow over the weekend

  • Akshay himself said that the budget of this movie is comparatively lower than his previous films…then why the ticket rates are same.Although, he wants to show this movie to wider audience…Bollywood makers has to use their ‘minds’. Because bollwood is an all-time low phase.

  • Lifeline of Exhibitors…This movie needs to cross 100 crore – Only Akki can rescue Bollywood by doing on an average 3-4 movies a year

  • Again a wom dependent film means the film is not excellent …hope it will get better as the day progresses.btw jhms dekhne ke baad. Main to srk ka JABRA JABRA JABRA JABRA FAN ho gaya. .

  • I have seen some of his movie and some of every khans movie and it very sad to say that the movies of these actors become hit not because of story but because of their star power.when we purchase any branded item and if it we don’t get satisfaction from that item then we never purchase item of that brand or that specific item.but I don’t know why people don’t do such behavior to movies.I mean they are selling those useless stories and we are paying money to watch those shit and making them rich.until film viewers won’t get smart these actors will cheat them and they will always manipulate us for their own benefit.

  • now people will undrstnd that that 20 of tubelight that too in ramdhan was not bad at many stars and superstars are there in the industry who can give an opening of 20 with a movie like tubelight.

    • There aren’t stars who can give 20cr with clash and delayed film too

      Btw the best opener of this century Kavi khusie Kabhie gham was also a pre Eid release
