Akshay Kumar can heave a sigh of relief… and celebrate as well! ROWDY RATHORE has opened to a thunderous response [95% to 100%] at single screens across the length and breadth of the country. In fact, the start at single screens is at par with several big-ticket films such as AGNEEPATH and HOUSEFULL 2 [both this year] and BODYGUARD [last year]. The response from the very first show was electrifying everywhere!
The response at multiplexes ranged from average to good. At several centres, the occupancy was 55% to 70% and is expected to grow from evening onwards. The not-too-aggressive start at plexes could be attributed to the fact that the advance booking was affected due to Bharat Bandh yesterday [Thursday]. Also, mass-friendly films, generally, have a slow start at plexes, but pick up gradually.
As per early trends, ROWDY RATHORE is expected to have a Rs 15 cr nett Friday. It may even cross the figure, depending on how strong the evening and night shows are. ROWDY RATHORE is all set to be Akshay Kumar’s biggest opener. His DABANGG.
