Satyagraha has earned a very decent 11 crore nett on first day at the Indian box office. Satyagraha opened to an average opening in Morning shows. Overall collections for the day was good considering it was a normal working day. But when movie budget, cast and release size is taken into consideration then collections could have been better.
The movie started Morning shows with occupancy of 30-40% on average. After that it sustained well and finally showed occupancy of 50-60%+ for Evening and Night shows. Movie reported varied occupancy in Multiplexes and Single Screens. In several locations occupancy was around 50-60%, whereas in some locations it was 20-25%.
Satyagraha should show progress on Saturday and Sunday as the weekend is progressing. Satyagraha released across 2600-2700 screens and this is a mammoth film from all perspective.
