In Bangalore the response is not as phenomenal as Mumbai, Pune and NCR region, but the occupancy is expected to increase.
Overall, looking at the pre-booking status, it looks like that the film is set to collect whopping amount on first day. And with long weekend, the film has very good chance of pulling crowds to it to put up a solid weekend.

Also, the theatrical trailer release of "Happy New Year" will boost the opening day box office collection. But the Saturday and Sunday collection will depend more on reviews and word of mouth.
