Prem Ratan Dhan Payo Vs Happy New Year Box Office:
Salman Khan starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which was released yesterday, had an Earth shattering opening. The film had broken many box office records. It is the biggest opener of 2015 and also for Salman Khan. But unfortunately Prem Ratan Dhan Payo could not beat HNY record.
As per the official figures PRDP has collected 40.35 crore in Hindi version only. On the contrary Shahrukh Khan starrer made a business of 42.62 crore in Hindi. So PRDP has fallen short of around 2 crore from becoming the highest opener ever.
Happy New Year 1.43 crore in Telugu and 0.92 crore in Tamil also. So its total collection stands at 44.97 crore. PRDP Telugu version performed poor and will collect around 1-1.5 crore.
So the big question is why PRDP could not beat Happy New Year record despite the fact it had surpassed HNY morning shows collection. Well the film was hit hard by low occupancy in late night shows especially after 10:30-11:00 PM since a three hour long film meant a 2 AM closure and tomorrow is a working day.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was also affected in South by Thala’s Vedalam which is doing record breaking business there.
