According to report by the Bollywood Hungama, on the first day Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’ had earned a occupancy rate varying from 80 % to 90 %, with multiplexes mostly holding morning shows. And as the faces no major competition of Hollywood or Bollywood movies releasing on the same date, ‘Dangal’ is expected to be a box office hit. Further, the corporate bookings had also helped the movie get a high occupancy rate in the first day. According to Bollywood Hungama report, many theaters had retained the price of the movie’s morning shows same as it is for the evening shows. And with no more Bollywood majors to release in the coming two weeks, Dangal is set to be one of the most grossed Bollywood movie of the year.
