Rustom Morning Shows Report:
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was up to 45% in all over India which is very good. The start is excellent in North India as the occupancy in circuits of East Punjab, is more than 55-60%. In Delhi city, the occupancy is around 55%. That is probably due to the presence of North India’s favourite superstar Akshay Kumar who has a massive fan following there. The opening was also good in places like Mumbai and Bangalore where the start is approx 35%.
In terms of occupancy, the film has the third best start in India and can emerge as the 4th biggest opening day of 2016 as screens are less as compared to Housefull 3. The promotions and excellent marketing seem to aid Rustom collection when it comes to initial. It is also the biggest opener for Ileana D Cruz and Esha Gupta.

Rustom is ahead of Mohenjo Daro in all of the places except down South where Hrithik Roshan has a bigger pull. With that trend, Rustom will easily outclass Mohenjo Daro on the 1st day. The economics are also favourable for Rustom and can emerge hit even with mixed word of mouth.
Noon Shows Report:
Rustom has remained steady in most of the places in the noon shows. There can be limited drops in the single screens of North. But overall the occupancy remained in the same range as the morning. What matters most is that it is way ahead of Mohenjo Daro as of now.
Update 6:00 PM:
Mohenjo Daro has started to match Rustom at the metro cities and is higher at few places. Rustom also had a little jump in the afternoon. Still, Rustom is looking way ahead of Mohenjo Daro as the very good opening has almost ensured better opening day. As of now Rustom is looking like a clear winner and MD has to show big gains in evening/night to even come close to Rustom.
Update 7:00 PM:
The verdict is out. Rustom has won the much talked about clash. Mohenjo Daro fails to put up a big show in the evening shows. The gap between both these films can be shortened but it is unlikely that Mohenjo Daro will go over Rustom in any case.
Stay tuned for more updates.
