Singh Is Bling Advance Booking:
This Friday will witness one of the biggest releases of the year, Singh Is Bling. Akshay Kumar starrer has a huge buzz and hype around. The advance booking for the film has opened to a phenomenal response at multiplexes and single-screens across India.
In single screens, tickets have been sold as hot cakes. Looking at the trend it seems that there will be no tickets available on Friday in the North. The multiplexes has also decent start and will pick up its pace tomorrow.
As expected, the film has the best booking in East Punjab, UP and Delhi where around 70% of the tickets have been sold. At some places the film is houseful for the whole weekend.
Gujarat, and Rajasthan has also good start. Mumbai circuit has an average response to advance booking which is a bit surprising. The advance booking is expected to pick up pace on Thursday.
West Bengal is another circuit which has below average advance booking. Akshay Kumar has a huge fan following here. But the genre and feel of Singh Is Bling might be the reason for it. Despite the slow advance booking, film will score huge on its opening day.
In down South, Puli has taken all the limelight. Vijay starrer will be the first choice for most of the people there. Fortunately Puli is releasing one day before SIB. Even then, Singh Is Bling will be dependent on word of mouth here.
Many people have been asking about the effect of Puli on Singh Is Bling collection. It will not have any major dent on Singh Is Bling as long as the key circuits in North perform as expected.
In Delhi-NCR and East Punjab, almost all the tickets have been sold for Friday. Rajasthan and Central Indian are good. Mumbai remained below average while South is naturally low due to Puli.
Puli could not release today in Hindi and Telugu languages. It is still unclear whether it will be release tomorrow or not as the film has received below average response. If it did not release tomorrow, it will give a boost to Singh Is Bling.
Overall the advance booking is excellent. So far it is the second best of this year behind only Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Looking at the advance booking, it is expected that Singh Is Bling can have the highest occupancy around 80-90% in North India and can shatter many records. While 20 crore is very much on the cards, it will be interesting to see how far it can go if other centers also perform well.
Do note that there is still one day left in release. We will update the report for tomorrow again. Also tell us what are your views about Singh Is Bling advance booking in the comments section.
