MUMBAI: UTV Motion Pictures’ ‘Kai Po Che’, which sees ‘Rock On!!’ director Abhishek Kapoor return to weild the megaphone, starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Raj Kumar Yadav and Amrita Puri in leading roles, has taken a decent opening at the box office on Day 1.
Friday’s collections of ‘Kai Po Che’ were impressive for a film starring three rank newcomers. The film managed to open with an adequate figure of approximately Rs 43 million (Rs 4.3 crore) net on Friday, Day 1. With the film managing to garner good reviews all around (SEE REVIEW), the business is expected to pick up fairly over the weekend. The highest collections of ‘Kai Po Che’ were from the creme-de-la-creme multiplex circles in Mumbai and Delhi.
‘Kai Po Che’ is expected to see better business in the coming week, as the other big release of this week, the Sanjay Dutt-starrer ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’ has opened to a dull first day. Further, previous week’s releases like ‘Murder 3’ have not managed to impress audiences. Even the Hollywood release ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ has performed lower than expected, so Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che’ stands a good chance in dominating the ticket windows in its opening weekend.
