‘PremRatanDhanPayo’ becomes the highest box office opener of the year 2015

 

It was an impressive opening at box-office as on the first day only, the occupancy rate was 70-80 per cent. It seems like the festive season, along with Salman and Barjatya's combo, has worked very well.

The Sooraj Barjatya directed film marks Salman's collaboration with the director and his banner, Rajshri Films, after an extensive gap of 16 years.

It must be noticed that Salman Khan‘s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ has become the highest opener of the year, beating his own record that he set with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film earned Rs 40.35 crore on Thursday, which by a big margin. Surpasses the Rs. 27.25 crore that Bajrangi Bhaijaan collected on the first day.

Last year on the occasion of Diwali only, Shahrukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Happy New Year’, was released and it raked in an impressive 44.97 crore. However, Salman's"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" had a higher number of screen count compared to 'Happy New Year'. Also, 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' released in over 4,500 screens in India and over 1,100 screens in the international market.

It is expected that the weekend collection for PRDP will be around Rs 110-120 crore; indicating huge accomplishments for the director and all team members.

So, this week's big Thursday has proved a blockbuster and the box office has exploded to match the Diwali fireworks.But it is still a question whether "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" will emerge as the highest opener. What is your opinion?

  • Oscars, or the Academy Awards 2017 have just ended, and it was one hell of an event.

  • When we recall the hottest buzzword of the century “Feminism”, many people confuse it with “Male Bashing” which is absolutely rubbish. It is more to do with a genuine status quo and not looking low at the men. By default, India is a misogynist country and most of the men here do not respect the womanhood because yes, the country has a patriarchal set up which really needs to be set right. Hence, the influential women have to come-up and voice for all the women out there to drill some sense into the Indian system. Right from Neena Gupta to Kalki Koechlin and Priyanka Chopra, every Bollywood actress has opined for the female emancipation which has to be heard by all.
