Salman Khan’s Hero movie obtained a rather decent opening at the Indian Box Office. In spite of the Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty starrer obtaining mixed reviews, it did not stop viewers from heading to the theaters.
The movie released in over 2000 screens in India and 200 screens overseas. The early morning shows opened with an occupancy of 35-40% which is a little above average. Newcomers obtaining this kind of response is quite commendable but all the credit goes to the producer Salman Khan.
As per the reports, the movie fared better in single screen theaters than multiplexes. Critics trashed the movie but viewers have liked it! So now Hero movie collections depend on word of mouth promotions, it they are positive then the footfalls will increase over the weekend, if it is negative then the collections will take a dip. Trade expert Taran Adarsh has reported that the film collected Rs 6.85 crores at the Box Office. He tweeted, “#Hero Fri 6.85 cr. India biz… Very good for a film starring newcomers… Biz will need to grow on Sat and Sun for a strong wknd total.” Post weekend, we can make out whether the viewers accepted the movie with open arms or not.
