Salman Khan’s latest film Ready, may have not got the best reviews from critics, but with cinemas packed the move is on its way to becoming a hit. The film may not be as big a hit as Dabangg was, it has managed to get the biggest opening of the year, with a projected total of 22 crores net in the first two days of collections.
The Ready box office figures already have the distributors heaving a sigh of relief and eyeing a fat profit as well. Directed by Anees Bazmee, the comedy film starring Asin and Salman Khan opened to a rip-roaring start on Friday. It saw the occupancy of 60 to 80 percent at both multiplexes and single screen theatres. Some shows in the evening registered a house-full.
The takings on Saturday were lower than the first day, and that is a cause of concern. The coming week will tell how big a hit Ready actually is.
