Prem Ratan Dhan Payo emerged the highest grossing first day ever in Delhi / UP and was also the first film ever to cross the 7 crore nett mark on day one in the circuit. It is not the highest single day ever that record still belongs to Bajrangi Bhaijaan which grossed around 7.5 crore nett on its first Sunday.
The film has done this huge number despite the film being more of a Mumbai circuit and Central India rather than North where action blockbusters tend to find the initial numbers. The standout number is still Ek Tha Tiger which was close to 6 crore nett more than three years back and UP was hit by the pre eid factor.
Despite the record, the Delhi / UP could have been higher but due to the genre the film lacked in some centres even on opening day. Below are the all time top ten opening days in Delhi /UP.
