Airlift 1st Day Collection:
Airlift has done very well on its opening day. According to official figures Airlift 1st day box office collection is 12.35 crore. It has beaten Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 by a very good margin.
Akshay Kumar starrer has a decent opening in the morning shows. The overall occupancy was 35%. As expected the opening was better at multiplexes. As the day progressed, it showed very good growth. The occupancy in the evening shows was around 70%. The film was running to packed houses in big cities like Delhi and Mumbai.
Airlift 1st day collection is better than Akshay Kumar starrer Baby which was released in the same period last year. The film was hit in parts of Maharashtra by Kya Kool Hain Hum 3. But in all other places it was way ahead of the adult comedy.
Airlift box office collection is an excellent result on its day 1. The film was released on a normal day and less screens. It was also competing with KKHH3. Though the clash does not have a major impact on Airlift collection as both films belonged to different genres.
Airlift has done well in North India despite the fact that thrillers normally do not fare well here. But Akshay Kumar has a huge fan base here which have resulted in better initials than KKHH3. It will be interesting to see if these circuits can perform the same on weekdays as then 100 crore will be very much on the cards.
The film is carrying terrific reports in all over India. So it is expected that it will show good growth on Saturday and Sunday. There is also a Republic Day holiday on 26th January which will give further boost.
