Chef has taken the lowest opening of the year if we take into account all the films which have cost more than 15 crore including promotion costs. The film was not expected to open well as trailers and the storytelling looked a disaster but still you would expect it can reach 1.50-1.75 crore nett but that is a huge task going by collections till 3pm. Last week we saw how good things can be when the right cinema is delivered to the audience and this week the Chef opening day number will probably show how bad things can be when wrong cinema is made. Actually its not correct to say wrong cinema but a better way to put it is past its sell by date cinema. The lowest openings of the year for films costing above 15 crore date are as follows. This does not mean the first day number will go in the following order but its lowest occupancy till 3pm on the opening day.
