Ever since the release of Chennai Express last week, Ekta Kapoor is having sleepless night since her dream project’s fate is in danger. With Chennai Express getting a humongous response at Box Office, distributors and exhibitors are in state of dilemma over the screen count of Chennai Express and OUATIMD on Independence Day.
Chennai Express is able to sustain on weekdays also with good collection of around 13 and 10 crores on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
OUATIMD Box Office fate completely depends on the number of screens on which the movie will be released on 15th August. If the sources are to be believed then exhibitors are trying to make good balance between Chennai Express and OUATIMD on Independence Day. It means that Chennai Express is going to retain good number of screens. As per the early estimates OUATIMD is going to be release on around 2000 screens on 15th August. This screen count may go up to 2500 from this Friday.
With 2000 screen release on 15th August and with occupancy of around 80% to 90%, OUATIMD can make 12 to 14 crores on first day.
Lets have a detailed look on the Box Office prediction of OUATIMD
First day Box Office Collection of OUATIMD : 13 to 15 crores on 2000 screens

Third day Box Office Collection of OUATIMD : 12 to 14 crores on 2500 screens
