It is good news for Salman Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ team as the movie has released to an excellent opening of 65-70% on average. Salman’s last release ‘Kick’, which was also an Eid release, opened similarly. However, the genres of the two films are different and experts believe that this time it is mainly Salman Khan’s star power which is drawing in the crowds.
News is that the opening shows did better than PK. However, PK did pick up after the morning show during the time. As for Bajrangi, reports suggest that it may miss a part of the audience due to Eid festivities while the plus is that it is a holiday and therefore may sustain the huge crowds.
Not only this, BB has also got a fantastic opening in the international markets. Trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted these numbers:
##BajrangiBhaijaan is creating HISTORY in international markets: Fiji Thu F$ 15k… Australia Fri A$ 125k… New Zealand Fri NZ$ 55k.
