Ra.One Advance: Excellent
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
Ra.One has had an excellent advance with 20-25% ticket sold for day one, this is the same as Bodyguard but as shows are more its a record amount in terms of tickets sold before release
The best advance has come in South India and this is for the Hindi version not regional version. Multiplexes in Bangalore and Hyderabad are around 80% full already. Nizam and Mysore will almost certainly set circuit records for day one. Ahmedabad is also set for a phenomenal opening with records being smashed.
In Delhi there are some multiplexes with 30-35% tickets gone while others are at 15-20%, Mumbai city on average is 15-20%.
The single screen advance is slower than Bodyguard if we look at major single screens of India like Liberty and Odeon in Delhi. Both these theatres were 90% full in advance for Bodyguard while its much lower for Ra.One.
Diwali Puja may affect more in the North and interiors as advance in places like Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Noida and Jaipur is less for shows after 1pm then the early shows but its hard to judge as other cities like Kanpur and Lucknow are similar for morning and evening.
