Channa Mereya has opened to pack houses in small cities in the opening shows. The occupancy levels are huge in many places and the film will surely open to a big number on Day 1. Early Morning Shows at many centers like Sirsa, Moga, Jalandhar, Jalalabad West, Muktsar were all sold out. The film is also faring well in big cities like Chandigarh & Ludhiana which usually collect big due to the presence of many big multiplexes in those cities. All in all Channa Mereya will open big and may break the record of the highest collections by a film starring a newcomer by some distance. That record is currently held by Rabb Da Radio which released earlier this year.
