Secret Superstar had low opening day in tha range of 4.50-4.75 crore nett. The film was affected by festivities for Diwali in most circuits but that is always the case for a film released on Diwali day. The collections of the film were best in Bangalore while Mumbai city and Pune were also fair. Generally the collections outside metros were very poor and this was partly due to Diwali puja but also as this genre does not hold much interest for that audience especially as far as the initial goes. The film may have Aamir Khan as a face but it does not make much difference in the core markets for Hindi films. The worst was UP which had awful numbers. The film will be depending on the metros and possibly a few other A centres especially the ones with a bigger Muslim audience.
The film will have a huge jump on Friday as it is the big holiday for Diwali and the best day for collections in the year and the figures will be much higher than what these type of normally do which means a far bigger audience will come due to the holiday and the solid 1750 screen release the film has managed to get. The screen count is not huge if you compare with likes of Tubelight and Bahubali - The Conclusion but for this genre its big as 1000 screens would have been enough. The film will have Golmaal Again for competition from today and this will make it tougher outside the metros as that film will be first choice but Secret Superstar will probably dent Golmaal Again in the metros especially in places like Bangalore and Kolkata.
