Among the three new Bollywood releases, Queen has turned out to be a big money spinner at the Indian Box Office in its first weekend. The Kangna Ranaut starrer started on a slow note on the opening day, but has shown good escalations in business on the following days. A strong positive word of mouth has played a magic at the ticket counters in the domestic market.
Queen registered an average of 20-25% occupancy at both single screens and multiplexes across the country on its first day. But the word of mouth took its business upwards with the movie witnessing 100% growth on Tuesday. Its collection further improved on Sunday. The movie has collected approximately Rs 10 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 1.75 cr on Fri, Rs 3.50 cr on Sat and Rs 4.75 cr on Sun.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh writes, "Its BO collections escalated rapidly over the weekend, with the business witnessing a big turnaround on Day 2 and Day 3 after an unsteady start. The growth at high-end multiplexes of urban centres was incredible, while the glowing reviews by the paying public as well as critics and super talk from reputed names within the film fraternity boosted its prospects."
