King Khan's “Happy New Year” breaks Aamir's “Dhoom:3” opening day records

Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone-starrer “Happy New Year”, which released in theatres Friday, looks likely to become the biggest opener ever. The early figures suggest that movie has raked in around Rs.38 crore, crossing Aamir Khan’s “Dhoom:3”, which collected Rs.36.22 crore, on the opening day. With “Happy New Year”, both SRK and Deepika break their previous record set by “Chennai Express”, which grossed Rs.33.1 crore on the first day. The movie tops the list of biggies like Salman Khan’s “Ek Tha Tiger”, which grossed Rs.32.93 crore on the opening day, Salman’s “Kick”, which earned Rs. 26.4 crore on the first day, and Hrithik Roshan-starrer “Krrish 3”, which made Rs.25.50 crore on its debut day. The average occupancy, which was 75-80 percent, of “Happy New Year” is by far the highest among the movies released in 2014. It is looking to beat the previous record by around 15 percent. Directed by Farah Khan, “Happy New Year” also features Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah.
