Agneepath has set a new first day record of around 22 crore nett as per early estimates. The film has collected phenomenal numbers in Mumbai and South easily beating the first day numbers of Bodyguard. The North India and Central India belts are coming in with slightly lower collections as compared to Bodyguard.
It is Mumbai and South where it has collected around 1.75 crore nett more than Bodyguard. It is also the second highest single day collection ever after the second day of Ra.One. The holiday factor has helped in a big way and just like Bodyguard day one and Ra.One day two.
The 20 crore nett plus days of Hindi cinema have all come with the major holidays be it Eid, Diwali and now Republic Day.
The first day will be the best day and now it remains to be seen at what levels the film sustains over the weekend.
