As India’s covid situation improves, many states’ governments have permitted theatres to function at full capacity, notably Maharashtra, which accounts for roughly 35% of Bollywood films’ theatrical earnings.
Despite the fact that just 14 districts and cities in MHA are permitted to operate with 100 percent occupancy, this will boost the film industry compared to the previous 50 percent regulation.
However, since the government enacted a full occupancy requirement, the producers who worked so hard to get the Holi weekend time slot when theatres reopened appear to be overjoyed by the full occupancy law, as it will undoubtedly improve their venture’s profitability.
Sajid Nadiadwala’s action comedy Bachchhan Paandey is one of these flicks that will be released around Holi weekend. On February 17, the film’s makers released the trailer, which sparked a lot of interest.
Akshay Kumar will portray the titular criminal in Bachchhan Paandey, whose police action picture Sooryvanshi is the lone fighter of post-covid times in the Bollywood business, grossing Rs 196 crore (Nett) at the Indian box office.
The box office is exploding with mass entertainers.
According to the trailer, the picture appears to be an out-and-out masala entertainment, and it’s worth noting that mass entertainer films like Sooryavanshi, Allu’s Pushpa, Marakkar, and Valimai have ruled the post-corona era. These films have grossed large sums of money and have aided the revival of the Indian film industry.
AKKI-SAJID’S TENTH PROJECT IS BACHCHHAN PAANDEY.
Akshay Kumar and producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s success Jodi has given numerous movie office hits together, including Hey Babby, Housefull film series, Dishoom, and others. The film Bachchhan Paandey is the duo’s tenth collaboration.
Because Akki’s picture is debuting around Holi weekend, it is a masala entertainer. His previous film was a great smash, and the main market MHA enabled cinema theatres to be completely full. With all of these factors in mind, it appears like Bachchhan Paandey will have a huge opening weekend.
PREDICTIONS FOR BOX OFFICE COLLECTION OPENING DAY AND WEEKEND
The Akki Starrer will have a comfortable one-week run in the box office north, as Prabhas’ Radhe Shyam is not doing well in the Hindi belt.
Rajamouli’s RRR will be released in theatres on March 25, one week after Akki’s picture, which might put the film up against severe competition considering the Hindi belt’s track record since Baahubali.
As a result, the Akki starrer has a potential to rule the single screens, but it will undoubtedly have competition in the multiplexes from Vivek’s magnum opus The Kashmir Files, which is receiving rave reviews from moviegoers.
According to our early estimates, Farhad Samji’s film might earn approximately Rs 20-25 crores (Nett) on its opening day, and roughly Rs 60 to 75 crores (Nett) throughout the opening weekend.
LIFETIME PREDICTIONS FROM THE BACHCHHAN PAANDEY BOX OFFICE COLLECTION
Bachchhan Paandey’s lifetime box office collection is projected to be in the range of Rs 120 to 150 crores (Nett) in India. The global total collection will be in the range of Rs 200 to 220 crores.
