Aashiqui 2 has opened well on its first day at the Domestic Box Office. Places like Punjab, Indore, Jaipur, UP, Rajasthan and CI performed excellent in the morning shows. The afternoon shows and evening shows will surely pick up.
However, it seems, the movie couldn’t excite the audiences set in major urban cities like Mumbai, Bangalore and some circuits in Delhi. Major reason being the release of the Robert Downey Jr starrer Iron Man 3, which started with a bang in these circuits. Iron Man 3 opened to an average occupancy rate of 40-45% in India, as per early estimates.
Considering a non-star cast film, the opening of this Mohit Suri directorial is pretty decent. This Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor starrer managed to open to an average occupancy of 45-50% in India. The single screens are rocking, since the Iron Man 3 is dominating the 3D and 2D screens at Multiplexes across the country.
