Bajirao Mastani 1st Day Collection:
Bajirao Mastani has a good opening day. According to official figures Bajirao Mastani 1st day box office collection will be around 12.80 crore.
Ranbir Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer has a decent opening in the morning shows. The overall occupancy was 45%. The opening was best in Pune and Mumbai. As the day progressed, it showed good growth. But it remained below average in Delhi, UP and Punjab. The figure is much better than it looked like at the start of the day.
Bajirao Mastani 1st day collection will be 9th highest opening day of 2015. It will be higher than Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's last releases Dil Dhadakne Do and Tamasha.
It had a terrific run in Pune with almost 90% occupancy. It has done well in Maharashtra and has given a tough competition to Dilwale. But the single screens outside Maharashtra were dull throughout the day. The film was also below average outside metros.
Bajirao Mastani box office collection is below expectations on its day 1. Though it can be justified with screens issue and cancellation of advance booking at most places. Some shows were also cancelled due to protests.
But there are danger signs for the film. It was not up to mark in Gujarat which was surprising. The same is the case in North India. The film has to gain momentum at either place to go anywhere.
The film has received very good reviews while the word of mouth has been positive. Bajirao Mastani has to show at least 25% growth on Saturday to have any chance to stand against Dilwale.
