The day 1 collections of a movie tell you a lot about its fate. No movie without a big opening has gone ahead to become one of the highest grossers of Indian cinema. While the opening collections do not guarantee a success, but they are almost essential these days for a higher final collection.
The record for the highest opening day has been broken almost every year since 2009. The lifespan for a film to hold the record is very short. Considering the ever-increasing no. of theaters and screens it has become easier to top these figures. Increasing ticket prices also help.
Maximum Producers of Big Budget movies decide to release their movies on a holiday to maximize this initial figure as much as possible. However, some major movies loose out on a high first-day figure because of a clash with another major film, for example, Raees & Kaabil, Dilwale & Bajirao Mastani and more.
So here are the current Indian Movies with Highest first day collections.
