“Action Jackson” earned ₹9.25 crores on the release day, whereas the Telugu movie had earned ₹10.01 crores on the first day. This could be surprising news for traders simply because the regional film has outperformed a mainstream Bollywood film.
While “Dookudu” had released in about 800 screens in India, “Action Jackson” has been released in 3500 screens. Yet, Ajay Devgn’s flick could not beat the Telugu film. Early response from overseas centres is no different, where it is being said to be just average for the Prabhu Deva- directed movie.
“Action Jackson” was supposed to perform better, given the promotions done by the film unit. The team had travelled to key centres to draw the audience’s attention. The early prediction was that the Bollywood flick could make ₹12 crores. But the film has performed below expectations to earn less than 10 crores on the first day.
Today’s big release, Action Jackson opened to an average occupancy of 50%, which in fact is not bad given the flop weekends November witnessed with films like Kill/Dil, Happy Ending and Ungli. According to early reports, the film is getting a better response in the single screen circuit as compared to the multiplexes.
