Kick has Bumper opening Today.
Kick is definitely challenging for all Time top opener.
30 Crore in a day has only been done by 3 films so far Chennai Express, Dhoom 3 and Ek Tha Tiger

Kick is highest opener of 2014 and ahead of Salman ‘s previous Jai Ho.
KICK has been sold by Producers to UTV for distribution
UTV ‘s Landing Cost for India + Overseas: 125 crore ( including promotion cost)
( This is the price at which its performance will be rated)
Production Cost of Kick estimated to be about 105-110 crores
Pre release Profit for Producers : 15-20 crore estimated
Salman Khan’s Fee: Satellite rights which is the same for all his movies
( valued at 50 crore Salman has a separate satellite right deal with Star )
Since satellite rights will not go to UTV so they have to work with only theatrical business and music rights
Kick Box Office Expectations:
The price that distributors have paid for the movie means that their expectation from this movie is a minimum of 200 Crores lifetime.
Trade Expectations for Opening Day: Rs 20-25 Crore. Anything above 25 Crores would be unprecedented for the movie.
A challenge to Dhoom 3 Lifetime would be hard for Kick because it faces a strong competition just 2 weeks post release from Akshay’s Entertainment and Ajay’s Singham returns while Dhoom 3 had a 3 week free run before any competition appeared .
Kick makers have made a difficult decision of releasing Kick 5 days before Eid this means that there will be pre eid effect and the first day will likely be lower than that of Dhoom 3 or Chennai Express.
5th Day Tuesday is when Eid falls and trade expects the movie to make the maximum on that day
Kick has been insured for 250-300 Crores for production, publicity, legal and distribution . Kick’s distributor has taken a policy to cover distributors’ loss of revenue that protects their interests from the date of release till 60 days. This is mostly to cover any legal or production issues which might cause any loss in revenue.
