New releases Annabelle: Creation and Bareilly Ki Barfi have slowed down the collections and occupancy of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha in its 2nd week by a fair margin. However, that is not a big worry as TEPK is still holding the majority of screens and is still getting lots of footfalls.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s 2nd Saturday’s morning occupancy is looking slightly better than its previous day, i.e. 2nd Friday. The morning occupancy is around 20-25% across the country. Being a weekend, this percentage will definitely improve in afternoon and evening shows.
Singe screens are showing a better hold for TEPK than multiplexes. In fact, in metro cities, Hollywood movie Annabelle: Creation is witnessing a huge response than Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Horror movies from West are always a massive attracting point for Indian audience.
The 9th day occupancy for Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will be around 35-40%. It will grow compared to its 2nd Friday. It has got around 2000-2300 screens in India now in 2nd week which is enough to keep minting strongly.
Let’s see how far it goes in its lifetime run. It has great chances to cross Roward Rathore’s collections of 133 crore in coming days.
