It's a great Friday for the Hindi film industry as solo big release
2 starring Aditya Roy Kapoor and newcomer
Shraddha Kapoor in leads, has started
with a bang at the Indian Box Office. Despite getting tough
competition from much-awaited Hollywood film Iron Man 3,
the Mohit Suri-directed romantic action film is doing a good
business. Trade experts say that it would set a new record.
Aashiqui 2 registered very good occupancy in both
single screens and multiplexes in the morning show. Its response
went stronger across various centres in noon shows. Its business
witnessed an upward trend at mass-dominated stations. Trade analyst
Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Aashiqui2 Delhi, Indore, Jaipur
morning shows start with a bang!" He added, "Even in mass-dominated
centres, the start of #Aashiqui2 is superb. Collections
rising with each show!"
Meanwhile, Iron Man 3, the latest movie in the Iron
Man series, which has released in more than 1,000 screens, has
fetched a bumper opening in many urban centres. The movie is
running neck to neck with Aashiqui 2 in some other
centres. Trade experts feel that it will set a record for Hollywood
films. On his Twitter page, Taran Adarsh writes
"#Aashiqui2 and #IronMan3 are neck to neck. At
some, A2 is leading, at some IM3. One of those
rare Fridays when 2 films have opened well."
