Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy has opened well at the box office. The occupancy in the morning shows is in the range of 45%.
The film has opened better at multiplexes as compared to single screens. This was expected as the genre will have more appeal in urban areas. The opening in big cities is the highest in recent times and can be compared to the biggest films of all time. In masses, the opening is average which is understandable considering the appeal.
Gully Boy is released on Thursday to take the advantage of Valentines Day. It is not a holiday however it gives a good boost to the collections as we have seen in the past. Gully Boy is mainly for youth so the impact is higher as compared to the rest. Ranveer Singh is coming after the blockbuster success of Padmaavat and Simmba and an excellent opening of Gully Boy has further strengthened his stardom.
The film has easily recorded the highest opening of 2019 beating Manikarnika and Uri The Surgical Strike.
