Opening on a high, 'Happy New Year' occupancy rates across India are hovering close to 90 pct and that augurs well for opening day box office collections.
What is driving 'Happy New Year' to the top are advance bookings, which registered amazing numbers. Add to that the fact that there are no other releases to act as competitors, and with the weekend beckoning, 'Happy New Year' box office collections numbers are expected to be superlative, if not the best ever.
First target of 2014 will be Salman Khan's 'Kick' and among others on the list are Hrithik Roshan's 'Bang Bang', while Aamir Khan's 'Dhoom 3' is the ultimate challenge, of course.
'Happy New Year' has been directed by Farah Khan and features Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah.
