Salman Khan Film's Hero, starring Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, has opened well across India. The film has apparently collected Rs 6.25 crore on its first day and will do even better over the weekend with a good word of mouth publicity. It has worked better in the single screen theatres than in multiplexes.
As exhibitor and distributor, Akshaye Rathi suggests, "Hero has opened well in single screen theatres in Tier II & III cities. It should do about RS 6.25 crore on day one. The multiplexes have had an occupancy of about 20-30 per cent across India, while it has been 40-50 per cent in single screen theatres. The film has done well in central India, except Delhi. Considering that the film has two new comers, the film has done well. The music and Salman Khan's brand has helped the film, while people are liking Sooraj and Athiya's performance too."
Hero received mixed reviews from the media, however the public has loved the film and it is expected to make Rs 16-17 crore over the weekend.
