Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan starrer movie Bol Bachchan, which is one of the most-anticipated comedy films of 2012, has opened to good response at the Box Office in North India. But the collection of Rohit Shetty directed film has been affected by director SS Rajamouli's Telugu film Eega in South India and Punjabi film Jatt and Julie (JAJ) in North India.
The much-awaited Bol Bachchan registered 60% to 70% occupancy in the morning shows in both single screens and multiplexes across India. It received very good response in Mumbai circuits with its occupancy ranging between 70% and 85%. Its business showed a major increase in afternoon shows.
But the movie was expected to get even better opening across the country. It is facing a set back at the Box Office due to the release of two big regional films like Eega and Jatt and Julie. As per the early trends, the slapstick comedy is expected to collect Rs 8 crores to Rs 10 crores on the first day of its release.
However, Rajamouli's Eega is much-hyped and most-awaited movie in South India. The special effects had created lot of curiosity among movie buffs. The movie has received overwhelming response at the Box Office in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala, where almost every theatre is running houseful. The Eega fever has surely made the film-goers skip Bol Bachchan.
