Bajrangi Bhaijaan has taken an excellent opening of 65-70% on average. Just like last year with Kick the start is extraordinary considering it is is Pre Eid. A big difference between Kick and Bajrangi Bhaijaan is that the former was an action film while latter is more of a social drama. Also the music of Kick was super hit which is not the case here which puts the draw of Salman Khan today into perspective.
The opening shows in the morning are also better than PK though that film did pick up later in the day but that was a normal day and today is day before Eid when most of the Muslim audience is busy with festivities.
The best opening has come in the Delhi NCR and East Punjab area with West Bengal being on lower side while South India has been affected by the film missing out on major single screens which normally play Hindi films due the mega success down South of Baahubali. Also Salman Khan is a much bigger draw in single screens of South India rather than the multiplexes which tend to support the urban Hindi films. Due to this loss of business anything around Kick first day would be a great result and if it was to go higher it would be extraordinary.Tags: Bajrangi Bhaijaan BearsBlueandOrange Boxoffice Kabir Khan Kareena Kapoor Nawazuddin Siddiqui Salman Khan video-ad-asset-container video-ad-asset-container-played video-ad-asset-container.expand
