Gunday is challenging for the biggest opening of the year in terms off occupancies. Jai Ho had also opened similar occupancies of around 60-65%  on average on day one and its a similar story with Gunday.

 

The collections of the film will find it tough to get to Jai Ho levels as there is a 30% difference in the screen count with Gunday being screened on 1100 fewer screens. Jai Ho was released on around 3900 screens in India while Gunday is 2800 screens approx.

 

Still to have similar occupancies to a Salman Khan starrer on the first morning is an achievement and that too without a big crowd pulling male lead albeit on a smaller screen count. If Gunday keeps on going at this pace through the day it has the possibility of returning the best figures of 2014 in a couple of circuits where Jai Ho underperformed.
