Raksha Bandhan, Akshay Kumar's upcoming film is about the precious bond of a brother with his 4 sisters. The movie has been marketed as a family-drama film that contains light punches, giggles & a few emotional moments. The movie will hit the theatres tomorrow, on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan. Raksha Bandhan box office day 1 collection, total screen count, advance booking & more details have been given here.
The family drama will be released on over 2500 screens in India, with strong distribution in tier 2 and tier 3 towns. With the runtime under control, the film is planned to have roughly 10,000 showings per day, as one screen has the bandwidth for 5 showings per day. As of Monday afternoon, the film had sold around 7950 tickets for the opening day at the three major chains.
In terms of overall bookings over the extended opening weekend, Raksha Bandhan has sold 12,000 tickets. While bookings for Laal Singh Chaddha are evenly divided between the opening day and the extended weekend, Raksha Bandhan bookings are predominantly for the opening day at this time.
The advances predict an opening day in the range of ₹8.00-9.50 crores, but if the reports are accurate and transfer into footfall on the day, we don't rule out a ₹10 crore plus start for this Akshay Kumar flick. On Thursday, there is the Raksha Bandhan holiday, which may boost the film's opening figures in tier 2 and 3 centers due to the festival's relatability factor among the masses and female audience, and may even surprise on the opening front. Raksha Bandhan's business will be heavily reliant on how well it is received in communities outside of major cities.
