Mumbai: Director Abhishek Kapoor's third directorial venture Kai Po Che has struck the gold at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. The Sushant Singh Rajput and Raj Kumar Yadav starrer has topped the collection chart, beating another new release of this week, Zila Ghaziabad. Trade experts say that it is an excellent opening for a film that does not boast of star names.
Having fantastic pre-release promotion, Kai Po Che, which released in 1,000 screens in India on February 22, registered very good occupancy at the multiplexes in major cities like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Delhi-NCR, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Indore, Bhopal, Jaipur and Bangalore, when compared to the single screens, where it had an average amount of footfalls. Youth are the one, who seemed to be the most impressed by the film.
As expected, Kai Po Che showed a big jump on Saturday. Its business was almost doubled in Kolkata, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and it had a huge growth in other places. The movie showed a massive growth on Sunday too. It has collected approximately Rs 18.10 crores nett in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 4.50 cr on Fri, Rs 6.25 cr on Sat and Rs 7.35 cr on Sun.
However, many had thought that Kai Po Che would stoop down before Zila Ghaziabad, which stars leading actors like Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi and Vivek Oberoi, but the latter got eclipsed by the Kai Po Che wave across major circuits.
