Dangal Advance Booking Report: The most anticipated release of the year Dangal is set to hit the screens this Friday. Aamir Khan is coming after two years as he was last seen in all time blockbuster PK released in 2014. Thus the film has a huge buzz and hype around.
Dangal has recorded very good advance so far. The samples are suggesting that approximately 40-45% tickets have been sold for the first day. There is still one day left before release which means the ticket sales will go further higher before the film release. The film has got the best start in Delhi/NCR where more than 60% tickets have been sold. The film is sold out in most of the morning shows. Bihar, Haryana and East Punjab are also good though the former two largely depends on walk in audience. Mumbai was slow initially however it has picked up the pace in the last couple of days. It has also got very good advance down South as there is no major competition from any other film.
On the other hand circuits like Rajasthan, Gujarat and CI are lagging behind in terms of advance booking. They are strictly average probably due to the theme of the film. The ticket rates have not been hiked except few places in North India.
The advance ticket sales are the second biggest of the year after Salman Khan’s Sultan. The pre-release ticket sales by the close of business yesterday will be in the range of 9-10 crore. The final total is targeting for 15 crore which will be lower than Sultan though that was released on a partial holiday. Overall the advance booking for Dangal is excellent considering that it is not a full-on commercial film. The film has got rave reviews from critics which will boost the advance today.
Looking at the advance booking, it looks like Dangal will have a 25 crore plus opening day which will be good as it is a working day. It can go further high but will largely depend on the tickets sales by walk in audience. Dangal has also recorded terrific advance in UAE and USA. At some places, the evening shows have already been sold out. The film was released in the USA on Wednesday and in Gulf today.
