Dear Zindagi starring Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan in lead roles has managed to take a good occupancy for morning shows. The film opened with an occupancy of almost 45% for the morning shows. In spite of the demonetization affecting the cine going experience, it is the Shah Rukh Khan appeal that has worked in favor of the film.
The film has had a limited release in almost 1000 screens and the occupancy is particularly high in the metros.
Of course, the opening day figure is not going to be as high as any other Shah Rukh Khan film, but after a comparatively a dull week, it seems Bollywood business will once again pick up with this one.
An opening day collection of approximately 8-9 crores is expected from the film.
