Ishqiya | Movie Stills | Rann
| Amitabh Bachchan | Rann Video
Ishqiya took a lead from its very first show onwards. The
eye-catching promos and popular music helped the film fetch a
better start than Rann at plexes. The opening was in 40% to 60%
range, but the business picked up during the course of the day. It
fared best in Delhi-U.P., Mumbai-Pune and Bihar, while C.P. and
Gujarat are weak. Ishqiya should collect approx. Rs. 2.5 crores to
Rs. 3 crores nett on Friday.

[all-India distributors of Ishqiya feels that the opening weekend
of Ishqiya should close between Rs. 8 crores and Rs. 10 crores,
thanks to a strong word of mouth and glowing reviews in the
Rann started on a 10% to 20% note, although a few plexes in
South reported more or less the same occupancy as Ishqiya. Both are
carrying favourable reports and the industry is hoping that the
appreciation translates into good numbers over the weekend.
