Priyanka Chopra�۪s big release this year has finally hit the cinema and on the first day, ��Mary Kom�۪ is seemingly doing well. Early figures are showing a decent occupancy level.
The film, which is a biopic about the boxer, was hoping to follow in the successful footsteps of ��Bhaag Milkha Bhaag�۪ (2013). It has achieved tax exemptions in certain areas and this has helped it�۪s reign at the box office on the opening day. The occupancy levels are at a healthy-ish 35% and no doubt these will only get better as word of mouth and the weekend business kicks off. Reviews of the film are also decent which should help towards a strong opening weekend, with the wide number of screens it has released in.
Last week�۪s release, ��Raja Natwarlal�۪ has been a huge disappointment ��� achieving a dismal 20 crores net in the first week.
