Toilet Ek Prem Katha is set to be second big release of Eveready Pictures within a Week.. Film won’t be matching numbers of Jab Harry Met Sejal at any cinema but film’s comparison can be drawn with last year’s Independence Day Weekend Akshay Kumar release Rustom.. Rustom had seen clash in the form of Mohenjo Daro whereas Toilet Prem Katha is solo major release.. There are two more releases same Week both are local releases but none of them is potential threat to the film..
Coming toward holdover releases Jab Harry Met Sejal even though has seen big fall on Weekdays but will still retain huge number of shows over the Weekend and at few multiplexes will have more shows than Toilet Ek Prem Katha.. Despite increment of screens since Rustom number of shows for TEPK won’t be much more than Rustom.. Rustom had collected 2.1cr approx over the Weekend and similar region Weekend is expected for Toilet Ek Prem Katha by industry but we are being optimistic and believe three day Weekend will go around 2.5cr and with Independence Day falling on Monday four day extended Weekend going over 3cr approx.. Even if we take into account Jolly LLB 2 released earlier this year, that film had more shows and collected in same region as Rustom over the Weekend but that film released in dullest month for boxoffice i.e. February..
Akshay Kumar films are failing to take bumper start in Pakistan for some time as content of his films is Indian centric but when he did comedy film Houesful 3 it took bumper start with day one going close to 2cr mark.. Toilet Ek Prem Katha is also Indian type content film but with comedy factor playing in it might see some improvement over Rustom, Airlift and Jolly LLB 2..
