This Friday we had a couple of releases but Dear Zindagi has embarked on all overshadowing the others for sure. The film has a star power with Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt along with others, while it has managed to get a decent rating by most of the reviewers. Thus the story at the box office since morning and the evening were really good for the Gauri Shinde film.
The film started with a good occupancy report tolling to around 40 to 45 percent in the multiplexes in all the cities in India particularly the north and the center while in the south it was low. This has really given a good signs of the film despite the fact that it has limited number of screens tolling to some thousand in India.
Compared to Gauri’s previous film English Vinglish, Dear Zindagi has taken a very good start and is likely to continue in the first weekend despite the demonetization woes faces by the movie goers. As per the reports, the first day box office collection for Dear Zindagi tolled to around 7 crores, which is really a good figure amidst the chaos due to cash crunch and other factors.
Well, the magic of Shah Rukh Khan and the on screen chemistry of the Fan actor with Alia Bhatt seems interesting catching up the audience in a decent rate. The trade pundits are however, keen to see a good surge in the coming first weekend, which will likely make a figure for 25 plus crore on the box office. The other releases in the form of Moh maya money and Saansei the last breath has least to hamper the same.
