Salman Khan‘s film Kick that released on Friday, July 25 days before Eid, received a tremendous response at the box office on the first day, with the India opening day collections standing at nett Rs 35 crore. UPDATE: Kick box office report: Salman Khan’s film crosses Rs 200 crore at the BO!
Earlier on July 25, trade analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted that Kick’s collections were Rs 26 crore. He said, ”Despite pre-Eid period + working day, #Kick opens to PHENOMENAL numbers. Fri ₹ 26.40 cr+ nett. India biz. Note:- Early estimates.”
The morning report says Kick‘s Day 1 box office collections total to Rs 35 crore. But the Salman Khan thriller has failed to beat Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 that opened with Rs 36 crore on December 20, 2013. Kick will still be considered among the highest opening grossers of 2014 though.
Kick is also the highest opener in USA and Canada, according to Taran Adarsh, who tweeted, “#Kick is the HIGHEST Salman Khan opener in USA-Canada. Collects $ 340,000 [₹ 2.04 cr] on Fri. AWESOME!”
Also, the Salman Khan-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer has opened well in Dubai with figures of Rs 1.63 crore. “#Kick has AWESOME start in UAE. Collects $ 272,000 [Rs 1.63 cr] from 68 screens on Thu. Several screens yet to report. SUPERB!” said Taran Adarsh.
