According to early estimates Piku day 1 box office collection will be around 5.2 crores.The previous figure was 4.75 crore but Piku showed tremendous growth at premium multiplexes in the evening shows.
Piku had a slow opening of around 20% in the morning shows.But it picked up rapidly in the afternoon and evening.Piku performed very well in the big metro cities.
Piku underperformed at single screens which was expected as the movie has a urban feel.It was released in limited single screens.Gabbar Is Back dominated the single screens again.
Piku will show growth on Saturday as reviews are very favourable and word of mouth is positive for Piku.The problem for Piku is that it has only one open week so it should have better opening.The costs of Piku are also high for a niche film like this.Now Piku should sustain very well at weekdays.
Day 1: 5.2 Crore
