So, finally the Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh film called Simmba released today. The film had a decent buzz in the media that helped the film to get a good advance booking as well. Hence when the film opened in the morning, the occupancy report went to 50 to 70 per cent not just in single screens but also in the multiplexes. As the day turned the dusk, the film gathered a huge occupancy report that went up to 100 per cent also in many of the single screens and even multiplexes particularly the cities like Mumbai, Delhi NCR, and Bangalore to name a few. The other cities that recorded a decent response include Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Calcutta.
So, with a good occupancy report, the film did a good business on day one. As per reports, the first-day box office collection went to around 15.25 Crores. This is a huge figure for a film having a newbie like Sara Ali Khan who is just a one film old diva in the media. Secondly, it was the first venture of Rohit Shetty with Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan. The venture had a bit of risk, but the buzz went big for the film with its songs and trailer coming in a regular interval, the hype for the film was good enough to score high. The trade pundits are now hoping to see a similar figure on Saturday as well, while the Sunday will see a huge collection perhaps reaching to around 20 plus crores.
Thus it would be fair to say that the film could cross 50 crore mark on its first weekend and the weekdays would also have good figures that would make it enter into the 100 crore clubs. The current trends suggest that Simmba would barely take a week to enter into the 100 Crore clubs thus giving Sara Ali Khan her first film with a century. Thanks to the performances of the actors like Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh the film is expected to see a huge surge with the New Year Eve coming close. Interestingly, the underwhelming response of Zero is not proving any hurdle for Simmba. So, at the moment the picture is rosy for Simmba at the box office.
