Vakeel Saab Opening Day Box Office: Territorial Break Down of Pawan Kalyan’s career best opening
Pawan Kalyan creates history at the box-office with Vakeel Saab. Detailed day one analysis.
Pinkvilla was the first on the internet to reveal that it’s a power packed comeback for Pawan Kalyan as his film, Vakeel Saab, has recorded an opening day distributor share in the range of Rs 31 to 33 crore. The film faced quite a lot of issues in its release on day one owing to the political conflict of Power Star with the government – ranging from reduced ticket rates to cancellation of special shows. It has stood its ground and recorded what we call a mammoth opening in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The opening day gross is upside of Rs 44 crore, whereas the net figure of Vakeel Saab is around Rs 37 crore with the opening day share being Rs 32.59 crore.
It is the fourth biggest opener of all time in the Telugu states – after Bahubali 2, Saaho and Sye Ra - and with a proper release, it well might have been only second to Bahubali 2 in terms of opening day shares. The day one figures are the career best for Pawan Kalyan. These figures have come in the midst of coronavirus scare, and this makes the achievement even bigger as Pawan Kalyan faced opposition to the invisible virus as well. The opening day share of Vakeel Saab is in the little under Rs 33 crore, with Nizam being the biggest contributor at Rs 8.80 crore share, followed by Ceeded and West, which raked in Rs 4.50 crore each.
