Wazir Friday Box Office Collection Update (1st Day):
Wazir is the first major release of 2016. Normally the first week of January is considered dull for Hindi release. Though there are some exceptions like No One Killed Jessica.
The recent release Dilwale has not performed up to expectations. Though Bajirao Mastani has turned to be a major success but that is mainly because of strong word of mouth. When it comes to initials, no film could take big opening except from Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in recent time.
Now all eyes are now on today’s big release Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Wazir. It was released today in around 1600 screens. The early trends suggest that film has taken a poor opening.
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was around 20% in all over India which is poor. The opening was slightly better in multiplexes of the big metros. While in cities it was dull. The film has a limited release in single screens.
Wazir has not improved much in the noon shows. The overall occupancy was up to 25%. The small centers are extremely dull which is surprising.
Going by early trends it looks like that Wazir 1st day collection can be in the range of 4 crore. The final figure will depend upon how it performs in the evening and night shows.
The film is largely dependent on word of mouth. Normally these type of films tend to improve in the evening shows. So we can expect that it will happen to Wazir also. The film has received decent reviews but the early response seems to be mixed.
