Salman Khan's Hero movie obtained a rather decent opening at the Indian Box Office. In spite of the Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty starrer obtaining mixed reviews, it did not stop viewers from heading to the theaters.
The movie released in over 2000 screens in India and 200 screens overseas. The early morning shows opened with an occupancy of 35-40% which is a little above average. Newcomers obtaining this kind of response is quite commendable but all the credit goes to the producer Salman Khan.
As per the reports, the movie fared better in single screen theaters than multiplexes.
Trade expert Taran Adarsh has reported Friday collections, "#Hero Fri ₹ 6.85 cr. India biz... Very good for a film starring newcomers... Biz will need to grow on Sat and Sun for a strong wknd total."
The overseas it recorded decent business, "#Hero - Overseas - Thu+Fri: $ 350,000 [₹ 2.32 cr]. Very good!"Taran reported, "#Hero biz doesn't witness growth on Sat. However, Sun should witness an escalation in biz. Fri 6.85 cr, Sat 6.62 cr. Total: ₹ 13.47 cr."
At this rate, the film will easily record a Rs 21 odd crore total.

The only #Hero worth watching is the one with #JackieShroff and #MeenakshiSeshadri. Sans them, all you get is a timid Zero. #bollywoodmasala

2 "star" kids with zero talent or looks, a loser director and a producer with a father complex makes drivel like #Hero
