The Yash Raj Films’ presentation which released on over 2800 screens minted Rs. 16.12 crore net on its opening day at Indian box office, as per trade figures. It is a terrific opening for a film not starring a male superstar. Goes to show that besides Priyanka Chopra, the male actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, too, enjoy a good pull at the box office.
Putting the opening day collection of Gunday in perspective, it is just a little shy of Salman Khan’s Jai Ho opening of Rs. 17.75 crore last month. In fact, in East Punjab the film fared even better than Jai Ho had done there. Gunday has also done very well in Delhi.
