After a terrible drop on Thursday, Akshay Kumar’s Gold is back in business whereas John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate is still going down. Satyameva Jayate had an unbelievable opening on Wednesday and it affected the business of Gold. But now it is feeling the heat at the ticket windows as footfalls in multiplexes are going down every day and Gold has started performing in single screens too.
From the data available on bookmyshow.com, it seems that Gold has taken a big lead over Satyameva Jayate on Saturday. The average occupancy for Gold was more than 50% whereas that for Satyameva Jayate was about 25%. Gold has done really well on Saturday considering the fact that it is not a solo release and day 4 collection may be 13-16 crores. On the other hand, Satyameva Jayate did not see any growth on Saturday and day 4 collection may be 7-9 crores.
Gold is heading for a big Sunday because of multiplexes whereas Satyameva Jayate may remain flat. In the worst scenario, Satyameva Jayate and Gold should cross 50 crores and 72 crores respectively in the first weekend. Gold will lose at least 15-20 crores in its first weekend because of the clash at the box office.
