The first big release of 2016 Wazir starring Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar started at slow pace in the morning despite some good reviews. The movie managed only 20-25% occupancy in the morning shows, but footfalls in big multiplexes went up in the evening and night shows.
As per the box office reports, the movie collected 5.75 crores on its first Friday. The increase in footfalls in the evening shows might be a good sign for the movie as it needs a big jump in the collection on both Saturday and Sunday to post a decent total in the first weekend. The weekend business is totally dependent on the word of mouth publicity. If the content is liked by the moviegoers, the film will put a good total as the lifetime collection.
