In this post, we will look at the highest opening day grossers 2017. The opening day collection of the movie depends on the star cast, early reviews and hype it creates before release. Big star cast and highly promoted movies always get a big opening at the box office irrespective of the content. This has been the case of the last 4 to 5 years. After a good opening, the lifetime collection of the movie depends on the content. Good movies like Dangal, Bajrangi Bhaijaan went on to become big blockbusters while movies like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Happy New Year failed because of poor content.
Talking about the highest opening day grossers 2017, Bahubali 2 is at the top with the first day collection of 41 crores. Bahubali 2 is followed by Salman Khan’s Tuubelight (21.15 crores). Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is at the third position with the first day collection of 20.42 crores. Raees is followed by Varun Dhawan’s Judwaa 2 (15.55 crores), Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal (15.25 crores).
Akshay Kumar’s courtroom drama Jolly LLB 2 is at the sixth position followed by his another movie Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhania is at the 8th position with the collection of 12.25 crores. dAjay Devgn’s Baadshaho is at ninth position followed by Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
