Gabbar Is Back is had a very good start at some places and was decent in other places. Overall the opening was good at around 40-45 %. It is the best opening for a Hindi film this year but that is not saying much as hardly any films have opened. The occupancies are less than Fast & Furious 7 and The Avengers – Age Of Ultron but has more screens than those films.
It is the best start for an Akshay Kumar starrers in a long time. Much better than films like Entertainment, Baby and Holiday though the last named film picked up rapidly from late afternoon.
The opening was best in Rajasthan, CI and UP while the big multiplexes in metros have just average start. The film has released on a holiday which is why the opening is good but on a holiday the opening should be excellent or bumper. The first day number will be good for Gabbar Is Back but the opening morning numbers don’t suggest a 15 crore nett plus number which was the requirement for the film due to holiday for May Day.Tags: Akshay Kumar Boxoffice Gabbar Krish Shruti Haasan
