Despite the fact "Talaash" has come out during non-festive season, trade pundits predict that the film is likely to collect Rs 15 crores on its opening day. However, the "Talaash" opened well at around 65 per cent at multiplexes and in single screens it was around 40 per cent.
The movie's best performance was in the big cities of South India.
The suspense thriller, starring Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor, is expected to beat the opening collections of "Raaz" (Rs 10.50 crore), "Bol Bachchan" (Rs 11.75 crore), "Cocktail" (Rs 10.75 crore), "Raajneeti" (Rs 10.50 crore), "Barfi!" (Rs 8.5 crore).
The movie would require good growth on Saturday to put up a big weekend figure.
From rave reviews to overwhelming footfalls, Aamir Khan's "Talaash " has hit the bull's eye, despite the fact it has come out during non-festive season.
