It's the first time that a film's show has been screened so early in the morning.There were 85 people who had come to catch Akshay Kumar's Singh is Kinng, first day first show. It was the first of 28 screenings at a Mumbai multiplex.
Other multiplexes are screening it as many as 40 times a day.That means, on an average, there's a screening every 45 mins.This is first time ever that a Hindi film's carpet bombing theatres in such a big way to maximise first weekend earnings.
