Singham Returns Heading Towards Historic Day 1 Tweet
Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn are back with their second installment of Singham, the hugely-anticipated Singham Returns. The film opened to a phenomenal response, not only at single-screens but also at multiplex chains across India. The film, which also features Kareena Kapoor Khan alongside Devgn, is expected to turn in massive returns at the box office due to the Independence Day holiday today. It is also expected to clock whooping numbers at the weekend, thanks to Monday being a holiday in some centres. Here’s what multiplex chains across India have to say about the film:
Amar Laykar of PVR Cinemas and Cinemax: On average, Singham Returns has 24 shows per property every day. Today, the film will wrap at impressive numbers at PVR properties all-India as today is a national holiday. We expect the Monday holiday to be a game-changer for the film. To compliment such a great response, the weekend’s advance booking is also impressive. The film has 90-per cent occupancy at most of our properties and footfalls are unchanged. Singham Returns will be between Rs 25 crore and Rs 30 crore all-India NBOC.
Ansh Kapoor of Fun Cinemas: The film has 3 screens dedicated to it at our 4-screen properties. We have not raised ticket prices and they are similar to the other big releases of the year. Amazingly, the film, which was expected to do very well at single-screens, has drawn an outstanding response at multiplex chains as well. Occupancy is 85 to 90 per cent at our Fun properties.
Abhishek Rai, Inox: Singham Returns has a very strong hold at the ticket window and will continue to hold strong across the Monday holiday as well. The film has 90 to 95 per cent occupancy, which has been constant throughout the day.
Ashish Gogia, Suncity Cinemas: We have 100-per cent occupancy for the film today. Day one will ring in outstanding numbers at our four properties. Day one, all-India, should be Rs 25 crore plus.
