Mission Mangal starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan in lead roles has hit the cinemas today, i.e., 15th August 2019, on the occasion of 73rd Indian Independence Day. As per the expectations, it should become 2019’s biggest opener. The opening (1st day) occupancy has been great.
If we consider the first day first show occupancy reports, then it suggest that the makers of this space movie are going to enjoy a lot. Considering only the Hindi movies of the year, it may become the second highest opener after Bharat with ease. The box office collection of Mission Mangal is expected to sum up close to that of Gold.
Gold movie of Akshay Kumar has been the biggest opener of his career so far. Mission Mangal opening occupancy has been reported to be around 50-55 percent. It is way ahead of its competitor release Batla House starring John Abraham in the lead role. In Mumbai, the occupancy was reported to be around 65-70%.
In Delhi, it has been reported even higher, around 70-75%. The best occupancy for the movie was reported from Bengaluru with over 80% occupancy. The reports are similar to that of Gold, but its collection is expected to be higher because of lower GST rate. Moreover, its ticket prices are also higher than Gold.
On the other hand, Batla House hasn’t opened so well. The collection of Mission Mangal is expected to be higher owing to the star cast and its content. However, the movie doesn’t have the buzz of a Rohit Shetty’s film with chart-busters songs and action sequences.
Mission Mangal 1st Day Collection – to be updated
Excluding Friday, the movie has released on the Independence Day which is going to be practically a long weekend. It is expected to bring audiences in large numbers. Besides the occasion of Independence Day, it is also Raksha Bandhan festival on the same day which is expected to bring more family audience.
The film is based on India’s Mangalyaan mission (the Mars Mission). On an average, Mangal Mission has received majorly good reviews. Besides Akshay and Vidya Balan, the film also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen, Sharman Joshi, Sanjay Kapoor, and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub.
