Cocktail had an excellent opening of 75-80% on average at multiplexes. Many of the PVR and DT multiplexes in the Delhi and Chandigarh area took a bumper 100% opening.
The opening at the premium multiplexes can be compared with any film in the last year or so be it Agneepath or Bodyguard. These premium multiplexes are mainly situated in metros and there satellite towns and there are not many in numbers but still to clock up such huge opening numbers at these theatres is great for Cocktail as not many films open to such big collections at premium multiplexes.
The opening was lower in the range of 50% at multiplexes in places like Allahabad, Meerut or Bhatinda.
