Ishaqzaade has taken a decent opening in the range of 30-40% at most places with a good amount of shows. The collections are even around 50% at some places. If we compare to Band Baaja Baaraat which was also a new cast film from Yash Raj Films, the opening is much much better.
Ishaqzaade should come out with a higher first day than all the small films released this year including super successful films like Vicky Donor and Kahaani.
The film has competition in the North and South with regional films in the form of Taur Mitran Di and Gabbar Singh respectively.
Gabbar Singh (Telegu) took a bumper opening in Nizam/Andhra but will not hit Ishaqzaade much as its business will be mainly from multiplexes of Hyderabad and Maharashtra side of Nizam circuit.
The Punjabi film Taur Mitran Di took an average opening so it will not affect much unless it picks up in a big way.Dangerous Ishhq Divya Dutta Jimmy Sheirgill Karishma Kapoor Rajneesh Duggal Vikram Bhatt
