Agneepath has taken an extraordinary opening all over India and is on course for a record first day going by the unbelievable initial. The film has taken the biggest start in recent history in Mumbai city.

The rest of the country has seen a huge 95-100% opening be it North India or South India. Its the first time a Hrithik Roshan starrer has taken a bumper opening since Dhoom 2 released in 2006.


The Bodyguard first day record is 20.60 crore nett and the advantage for Bodyguard was that its second day was a holiday at places and these places showed big collections in late evening and night shows.

Karan Johar’s Agneepath, which released today (January 26, 2012) has taken a bumper opening at the box-office.


With audiences lining up in huge numbers at multiplexes and single screen cinemas all across India on the Republic Day holiday, the opening of the Hrithik Roshan-starrer has been terrific. This kind of a huge initial was expected because the advance booking, which opened on Sunday/Monday, was outstanding, from North to South and East to West. Cinemas witnessed an excellent 95 - 100 per cent occupancy in the opening shows.


Trade sources are saying that the first day’s collections of Agneepath could be Rs. 20 crore. The film has a four-day weekend (Jan 26 – 29), which will draw in many more audiences. The film’s producers and distributors are slated to make a lot of money; profits will start coming in from the first weekend itself.


However, it remains to be seen if Agneepath will break the opening day record of Salman Khan-starrer Bodyguard (Rs. 21 crore). predicts that Agneepath has super-bright chances of surpassing every previous opening day record, including that of Bodyguard. Needless to add, this would be Hrithik Roshan’s highest ever initial.
