Azhar 1st Day Box Office Collection
The only Hindi film release this weekend Tony D’Souza Azhar has done decent business on its first Friday. The film starring Emraan Hashmi, Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri starrer fared well at the box office after taking a decent start.
The film was released in 2200 screens in India. As per the official figures, Azhar 1st day collection will be 6.30 crore. The film had a decent opening in the early shows, with an average of 25% registered occupancies. Thanks to the immense pre-release buzz, the film improved in the evening shows as the occupancies was as high as 50%. Azhar 1st day collection will be 8th highest opening day of 2016. The film has beaten Masyizaade, Wazir, Jai Gangaajal and Neerja.
Azhar box office collection is good on its day 1. The film had a good run in single screens and mass centers like Gujarat and Central India. Emraan commands a good following in these centers and hit music has also helped it to get a good initial. Plus the ongoing IPL season was another advantage for the film which is based on cricket. The opening of Azhar is the better than the last 6-7 releases of Emraan Hashmi but it is short of Jannat 2 and Raaz 3.
Now Azhar has to show around 25% growth on Saturday. The film has mixed reviews and it will all depend on the word of mouth which has been the deciding factor in this year. In metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore the film had a low run and it has to improve here big time.
