Ek Villian had a very good opening of around 55-60%. The film opened very all over though East Punjab due to Punjab 1984 and Delhi city were slower than other areas.
Delhi city had an advance which was less than Transformers – Age Of Extinction and though it managed to open on par with that film it was still lower than other places like CPCI Rajasthan and Gujarat. At some multiplexes where tickets rates are lower in the morning the film actually had full houses. In East Punjab though the Punjab cities were slow Haryana was strong.
Ek Villian even managed to open well in Kolkata which is a hard market to crack unless you are Shahrukh Khan. It could be due to the fact that the directors last film Aashiqui 2 had huge appreciation with a fantastic extended run in West Bengal.
The film has been made at a reasonable cost and as expected on this start the film is a success unless something totally goes wrong on Saturday and Sunday. The main task for the film will be does it have the appreciation to become a grosser or does it remain a success on the basis of its initial.Boxoffice Ek Villain Mohit Suri Riteish Deshmukh Shraddha Kapoor Sidharth Malhotra
