Meri Pyaari Bindu and Sarkar 3 Day 1 Box Office Collection Update: This week saw the release of two Bollywood films Meri Pyaari Bindu and Sarkar 3 and a Hollywood film Alien Covenant. There is also South film Baahubali 2 in Hindi version in its 3rd week. The early trends suggest that both new releases have a disappointing start while BB2 remains super strong even on its 15th day.
Meri Pyaari Bindu 1st Day Box Office Collection Early Trends:
Parineeti Chopra and Ayushman Khurrana starrer MPB has released in around 750 screens. The film has opened with 15% occupancy in the morning shows. It is a dull start considering the screen count. The film was mainly targetted at multiplexes so it has chances to grow in the evening. Still, Meri Pyaari Bindu 1st day collection is likely to come in the range of 2-3 cr as per the early trends. The only plus is that the budget is on the lower side (22 cr) but it needs to have excellent word of mouth to register a decent lifetime total.
Sarkar 3 1st Day Box Office Collection Early Trends:
Ram Gopal Verma and Amitabh Bachchan’s Sarkar 3 also has a very poor start with occupancy around 10%. Though it has a wide release in around 1400 screens which is double as compared to MPB. So Sarkar 3 1st day collection can be higher than Meri Pyaari Bindu. Though the later has more chances to grow in the evening.
Bahubali 2 3rd Friday Box Office Collection Update:
Baahubali 2 has a solid start even on the third Friday. The film has retained around 1800-2000 screens in Hindi version which is higher than both new releases. It has opened with 30% occupancy and Bahubali 2 3rd Friday collection will be higher than combined collection of both new releases.
There was also a Hollywood film Alien Covenant which had a limited release. It has opened with 10% occupancy in the morning shows. The film can do something in high-end multiplexes if it finds appreciation. Also, a Punjabi film Lahoriye featuring Amrinder Gill has taken a good start in Punjab.
It’s been five months into 2017 and there are only two Bollywood films Raees and Badrinath Ki Dulhania which have taken a good initial. While the rest of the films mainly depended on the evening growth.
