Toliet Ek Prem Katha has had a decent business on day one with collections around 11.50 crore nett as per early estimates. The numbers are very similar to Jolly LLB 2 which released early this year. A year that has been for opening days now has seven films above 10 crore nett and they Bahubali - The Conclusion, Tubelight, Raees, Jab Harry Met Sejal, Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and not Toilet Ek Prem Katha. The figures of Badrinath Ki Dulhania are 11.68 crore nett and Toilet Ek Prem Katha could edge past when morning collections come in.
The film did not look a 10 crore nett opening film in the morning with just a fair start but it made ground post afternoon shows in all circuits barring the South. This should enable the film to have an upward trend on Saturday and a good jump will put it on to the road of success. The opening day collections of the film may well be below Jab Harry Met Sejal but it has beaten that film in many circuits. The only big differences are South India and West Bengal. The film has performed better in UP, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan and even the final East Punjab number could come out higher. In terms of Jolly LLB2 the 50 odd lakh gap between them is because of Delhi / UP and East Punjab and that film had a wider release.
