Day One Figures: Unfair Comparison
In many ways, the comparison being made by the media and sections of the trade between the first day collections of Bodyguard and Ra.One was unfair. While both the films released on Wednesdays and public holidays, the Salman Khan starrer, Bodyguard, had released on Eid day, which is generally considered to be extraordinary at the box-office. On the other hand, Ra.One released on Diwali (Laxmi Pooja day), a day which is dull at the box-office because many Hindus stay indoors to participate in the festivities including poojas.
In that sense, the day after Diwali (i.e. Thursday in the case of Ra.One) proves to be the real ‘Diwali’ for the film industry because people come out in hordes to the cinemas on the second day of Diwali. The wonderful second day collections of Ra.One just go to prove this.
- Komal Natha
In India, RA.ONE took an electrifying start on Wednesday noon, but the business slowed down considerably on Wednesday evening onwards due to pooja and festivities. However, the business is expected to grow manifold on Thursday.
Internationally, the film is all set to create new records as it collected Rs 6.5 cr on Wednesday. The breakup is as follows:-
-RA.ONE crossed Rs 25 cr mark in India only on day 2. Highest ever. Still counting
-Even though it's a 2nd day total, it is certain that it will be recording the biggest day in history of the Indian Cinema.No film has collected this much in a single day.
-Ra.One has created history in East Punjab on its second day. Not only is it a record collection for a single day in the circuit but it is the first time that any film has crossed the 2 crore nett mark in a single day.
-The East Punjab collection for Thursday is likely to be around a humungous 2.25 crore nett. -BoxofficeIndia
