combination of all. IMO any big star+1st day holiday+wide release will break existing opening records.

Its a combination of all THREE

1) Will HNY with Ranbeer/Shahid as lead and same screen count and same holiday release will give this opening?
2) Will HNY with SRK as lead and Screen count just as Haider will give this opening?
3) Will HNY with SRK as lead and releasing on Non-Holiday will give this opening?

So Question is:

Will HNY with SRK as Lead and wide-scale release and on a great holiday will give this opening?

Answer is : You know it

Combination of everything. And srk is a huge factor.

Let me say combination of all 3 things as you can't give 40 crs on 2000 screens and then on Mon holiday 40 crs is also impossible and without SRK and with only other cast of HNY even with record screens and holiday this much is out of reach how much would sonu, abhi, boman, and vivan shah and deepika would have given lol soch ke bhi hasee aati hai

now why srk was the biggest reason because first of all screens must be most but HNY HAD 10% LESS SHOWS THAN KICK you hear that 10% LESS SHOWS so that makes it an even bigger achievement and another proof of SRK'S starpower is that BOI said that HNY had best occupancy since film started to release in 2000 screens means since 2011 HNY recorded best occupancy all day so now there were many films that released on holidays but HNY got best occupancy since 2011 so this process that screens and holidays were factors that contributed in HNY opening but SRK was the biggest factor that helped HNY achieve a near immposible feat as said by many users before release

so it's holiday + screens which were huge but remember shows were 10% less than KICK and SRK combined but biggest factor was SRK

now if you want to believe than believe if not then don't but this is the truth

Its mega star power + holiday. Screen count isn't matter because average occupancy is above 95

Well the same Way Dhoom Brand + YashRaj+ Katrina + Abhsiheek Bachan + Uday Chopra + Aamir Khan + Open Weeks + Screens were the reason Dhoom 3 Worked Bigtime At Boxoffice

And for those,who are saying DP.....DP's Finding fanny collected 4 times more than Dhobi ghat and 25 times more than Khelein hum Jee Jaan Sey.so,DP is bigger star than flop star Aamir.
Shame on Aamir.

Releasing on 5000 screens with such huge promotion and Deepika, any other actor could have given a huge opening. PK's trailer was also attached!
But now HNY 6th day is 8.5 crore while Dhoom 3's 6th day was almost 20 crore, thats real stardom and craze.

After super flop trailers n songs the only reason for record opening 1st day was over the top promotion shows ..
