Due to Good Friday holiday across the country, the morning shows recorded decent occupancy compared to last few releases. The morning shows occupancy across the country was 45 to 50 percent.
Circuits including Mumbai, East Punjab, UP, Rajasthan, Delhi and Kolkata opened well on Friday. The film is expected to pick up pace during the course of the day.
