Azhar Opening Day Box Office Report | Occupancy Report
The movie got off to an excellent start in mass centers like Gujarat, U.P and Central India. In metros and multiplexes, the opening was low as compared to mass centers but still the movie managed to register decent occupancy of around 15% to 20%. In evening and nights shows, the movie witnessed good growth thanks to positive WOM from the general audience.
Azhar is Emraan Hashmi’s biggest opener since Raaz 3 (2012) which collected 10.5 crores on the first day. In UAE-GCC, the movie collected 72.72 crores on the opening day (highest for Emraan Hashmi).
Though the reviews are mixed, the WOM from the most parts of the country is positive. Azhar is expected to show decent growth over the weekend. The movie has pretty solid economics as it just needs to collect 45+ crores to be called a hit at the Box Office.
