Toilet Ek Prem Katha First Day Collection: Occupancy Report
Morning Shows Occupancy Report
Released on 3000 screens, the movie recorded 20% to 25% occupancy in the morning shows. This is a slow start as the expectations were large and the movie has created good pre-release buzz. The film has opened better than Akshay Kumar’s last release Jolly LLB 2 in places like Rajasthan and Gujarat. But the collections are lower than that film in the metros like Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata and Pune.
Multiplexes were always expected to be low as the film has a rural subject. Single screens are yet to start and it remains to be seen, how the movie performs in the mass centres. There are good chances that the movie will show growth in the small and mass centres.
Noon Shows Occupancy Report
TEPK has shown good growth in the noon shows which was expected after a slow start. The single screens and mass centres have started on a positive note. The overall occupancy in the noon shows was around 35%. Central and North Indian circuits were the best performing circuits.
Night Shows Occupancy Report
The movie saw good growth in the night shows especially in middle-class metro cities like Bhopal, Lucknow and Jaipur. The overall occupancy in the night shows was around 50%
Toilet Ek Prem Katha first day collection: official numbers
As per official numbers shared by Taran Adarsh, Toilet Ek Prem Katha first day collection is 13.1 crores. This is Akshay Kumar’s 9th highest opening day grosser. Talking about the films of 2017, TEPK is the 6th highest opening day grosser of 2017 after Bahubali 2, Raees, Jab Harry Met Sejal, Jolly LLB 2 and Tubelight.
TEPK has been made on a controlled budget of 35 crores including the promotion and advertising cost. As per the reports, the domestic distribution rights were sold for 53 crores. While the makers have made a huge profit before release, the movie needs to cross 100 crores to be a safe bet for the distributors. A healthy first weekend is required to enter the 100 crore club and Akshay Kumar fans would be hoping for the same.What are your views on Toilet Ek Prem Katha first day box office collection?
