Ajay Devgn, Erika Kaar and Sayyeshaa Saigal's Shivaay has just released and though it is off to a slow but decent start, don't count the film out yet. Shivaay is a massy film, which generally does well in the single screens. Shows in single screens generally start post 12, but the movie has performed well in the multiplexes too. In the morning shows, Shivaay has maintained a decent occupancy of 15-25 per cent across India.
And as we expected, Shivaay has started off well at the single screens. But with limited early morning shows, we expect the movie to pick up in the afternoon and evening shows. Trade expert - Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) also agrees with us, when he mentioned to us EXCLUSIVELY, " Shivaay is clearly a single screen film. So to judge the trends of Shivaay by the morning shows in multiplexes is a bit unfair. The real trends of the movie will emerge after 12 in the noon after the shows in single screens take off. Shivaay's occupancy is slightly on the lower side, about 15-25 per cent. But as I said the movie is a single screen film and to gorge its opening in the multiplexes and decipher its trend is bit wrong because the real trends will be known after the movie releases in single screens theatres post 12 in the noon."

Shivaay was shot extensively abroad and hence, the budget is on the higher side, which Rs 100 crore. According to our estimates, the film might easily touch the Rs 40-45 crore mark by the end of the first weekend. Trade expert and Editor of Super Cinema, Amul Vikas Mohan also agrees with us when he mentioned to us EXCLUSIVELY, "I feel that Shivaay can make Rs 50-75 crore over the weekend. The film can easily collect Rs 12-13 crore on day one (Friday), Rs 15 crore on day two (Saturday) and Rs 16 crore on day three. This means the film will have collected nearly Rs 45 crore over the weekend, These are the bare minimum numbers and any of these films can pick up after Friday and on Saturday we can see a huge growth, so the film can easily earn Rs 50-75 crore over the weekend."
