Padman Day 1 Box Office Collection Update: Akshay Kumar’s first release of 2018 has hit the screens today. The film was supposed to arrive on Republic Day weekend but was postponed to avoid the clash with Padmaavat. Early trends are suggesting that it has a decent start in the morning shows. Check out PadMan collection report for the 1st day.
Morning Shows Report:
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was over 25-30% in all over India which is an average start. This was expected as the pre-release buzz and hype were on the lower side and the advance booking was also below the mark. The opening is better in the metros due to the female audience coming in good numbers. But in single screens, it is one of the lowest openers for Akshay Kumar in the last couple of years.
PadMan was released in around 2750 screens in India. This has been the case with most of the Akshay Kumar release as they struggle to open big and rely more on word of mouth. The theme of the film was also another reason which has affected the business in single screens as the family audience will not come in big numbers.

As it is a content-oriented film so the evening crowd will come at multiplexes. The film should target for a double digit opening which would be a fair start.
