Mumbai, Feb 15 (): Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer Gunday had struck gold at box office on opening day with strong occupancy in theatres. The movie had collected 16.12 crore on its first day of release in the Indain box office.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Gunday Fri ₹ 16.12 cr nett [2800 screens]. India biz only. Fantastic!”
After producing all time Blockbuster ”Dhoom 3”, YRF is back with another thrilling project. ”Gunday” was released on Valentine’s Day, February 15, across 2800 screens marked by a high thrill quotient and huge expectations.
The movie received excellent response on the opening day. Taran Adarsh said the start has been super not just at single screens but also in multiplexes. This response to Gunday has caused a great surprise in the industry, as masala films, generally, do not open too well at multiplexes.
The excellent response to the film is due to the word of mouth publicity and the critics’ reviews were also equally positive. Another major reason for such a surprisingly enormous collection can be the effect of Valentine’s Day, which gave the film a major boost.
As there is no big release for this weekend, ‘Gunday’ is expected to continue to rule the box-office. The film is doing good in Delhi/NCR and rest of North and Central India and West Bengal.
Taran has again tweeted, “As per trends, expecting #Gunday to have a phenomenal ₹ 45 cr to ₹ 50 cr opening weekend”.
The romantic-action flick is written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Aditya Chopra. The story of Gunday is set in the 1970s and tells about two young men Bikram and Bala, who live on the wrong side of the law, becoming gun carriers and coal gangsters. They eventually grow up to become the most powerful gangsters of Calcutta. Priyanka Chopra plays a cabaret dancer.
