Salman Khan’s action drama film Bajrangi Bhaijaan opened to fabulous response at the ticket counters in the Indian cinema halls. Though the morning shows had 80-90% occupancy, it dropped as the day progressed and picked up again during night shows. The opening day collection couldn’t break any previous record because it was a working Friday and the Muslim moviegoers stayed away from the theaters due to Eid.
As per the box office reports, the movie amassed about 27.25 crores on its first Friday which is higher than Salman’s previous super hit movie Kick (26.40 crores). As the words of mouth is very strong for the film, the second day collection might register more than 50% jump in the collection and it might cross 100 crores figure in 4-5 days.
