After getting rave reviews by most of the critics, Barfi! saw a strong start at the box office on its opening day. Almost all the multiplexes from across the country saw a good footfall for Barfi! today morning.
The Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer saw an average 80% occupancy throughout. Barfi! saw much higher occupancy in few cities like Delhi where the average occupancy was over 80%, and Kolkata 90%, thanks to the Kolkata element in the Movie. The best part for Barfi! is that it started well in small centers too.
Few cities saw lower footfall of about 70%, Jaipur being one of them. If we look at single screen theaters, the collections were not pretty good but that can be coz the movie released on a mere 300 single screens.
Guess who’s waiting for the good news? Ranbir Kapoor might just break his last biggest opening day collection of under 10 Crores with Barfi! For a solo Ranbir starrer, this movie looks like pretty impressive at the box office. Evening shows might see an even higher footfall. All in all Barfi! is in for a rocking start at the domestic box office.
