Bollywood movie Desi Boyz, which stars Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh in the leads, was expected to get a thunderous opening at the collection centres. But the comedy drama has opened to a mix response at the Box Office on the first day.
Desi Boyz is a mega-budget film and was released in nearly 2,200 screens across India, which is one of the biggest releases. The movie was expected to debut with its occupancy ranging between 70% and 80% on the opening day. But its response was unexpected one.
The response for the movie varies in different parts of the country. Desi Boyz registered 30% to 40% occupancy at some places, while in collection centres it occupancy ranged between 75% to 90%. Overall, its received 50% to 65% occupancy in the country.
However, Akshay-John's previous combo movie Garam Masala had got overwhelming start. Their latest release Desi Boyz was also expected to get the same response as it had extensive promotions and had no major film to compete with. Now, movie bosses are hoping that it would do well on Saturday and Sunday.
