Airlift has opened to pretty good collections of around 30-35% as multiplexes of cities opened well. The opening is better than last year’s Baby which was released in the same week last year and also starred Akshay Kumar. Airlift also had competition from Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 but should easily surpass the figures opening day numbers of Baby.
The opening is best in in the big cities. Both Delhi city and East Punjab should top 1 crore nett especially as evenings should be better as these films have do better on Friday evenings and there is huge multiplex presence in these areas. Mumbai city is decent but smaller cities of Maharashtra opened similar to Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3, some were even lower.
Despite the start there is still a long way to go for the film as it will not be a big number that a big cast film should be doing so it becomes about that weekend growth. If the evening growth comes then it will have good platform to build from on Saturday and Sunday with solid growth.
Also the morning opening is probably enough to have better collections than Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 as the film will do better in the evening. If the film had opened like Baby then a shock would have been on the cards.
