Shootout At Wadala had a good opening at most places with collections around the 65% mark on average. The film opened better in places like CP Berar, Maharashtra and Nizam probably due to action and due to the fact gangster films have a larger audience for these films. The opening in the North was also pretty good taking into account it is more of a Mumbai circuit film.
The film should notch up healthy first day collections despite it not having a big star although there are plenty of known faces in the film but non of these are crowd pullers. The film has been released on around 2500 screens across India making it third biggest release of 2013 after Himmatwala and Race 2 but both those films went to to 3000 plus.
Bombay Talkies opened to a poor 15-20% response and this also only came as the film is restricted to a limited release with just 3-4 shows at the better multiplexes of major cities. The film will have low collections as opening is low and screenings are limited.
Chhota Bheem And The Throne Of Bali also opened poorly but being a film for children it is more about Saturday and Sunday business. The earlier Chotta Bheem film released last year had done reasonable business.Anil Kapoor Anurag Kashyap Bombay Talkies Boxoffice Dibakar Banerjee John Abraham Karan Johar Rani Mukerji Sanjay Gupta Shootout at Wadala Zoya Akhtar
