Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is having a great time at box office. It has collected 96 crore in its 1st week itself, which is Akshay Kumar’s Highest Total in one week for any of his movie. The Independence Day holiday has given it a massive boost.
Today, Bareilly Ki Barfi is released but it is not imposing any threat to TEPK as it has got decent screens but it is Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which is still holding the majority of screen share as it is running so well.
On 2nd Friday, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s morning box office occupancy is somewhat on a lower side. It is witnessing a fill rate of around 15-20%. Being a Friday, audience tends to give chance to the new release so the morning occupancy will be affected, especially in multiplexes.
However, TEPK is still getting a good response from small towns. Afternoon and evening shows across the country are once again showing good footfalls, increasing its occupancy to around 30-35%. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is expected to dominate the 2nd week too.
There is also Hollywood movie Annabelle: Creation which has a good interest level in urban audience. So, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Annabelle might affect Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s Friday collection a bit as they are released today but that is not a big worry for this Akshay Kumar film as it will have a good collection on Friday nonetheless and 2nd weekend will also boost its earnings.
