Singham turned out to be a huge surprise when audience at a cineplex in Ahmedabad gave a standing ovation to the film after the show concluded. Singham also gathered a lot of appreciation in Rajasthan, where the distributor's phone kept ringing since 3 a.m. on Friday, after a midnight screening of the film.
On the other hand, the business of Singham got affected at plexes on Friday morning and noon since its release was uncertain till Thursday night. The show timing therefore were not published in newspapers. The multiplexes also did not sell the tickets in advance because the revenue sharing terms between the distributors and multiplexes was not decided till Thursday night. Despite all these issues the the opening shows were decent.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara chased in golds in its first week at box office with a collection of Rs. 45 crore nett, making it a big hit. Meanwhile, Murder 2 completed its two weeks with an aggregate collection of Rs. 43.50 crore nett. It"s a Hit again.
As expected, the audience have welcomed Singham with wide arms. Future weeks seems to be bright for Singham at the Box Office. Almost all the screens reported 80% to 90% to 100% occupancy. The film earned a lot of accolades with whistles and claps.
