Avanthika Roy (Pune) : Can Street Dancer 3D take a strong opening since it has Super Hit music ? Will this be Varun Dhawan’s biggest opener ?
Answer : Varun Dhawan’s Highest opener is Dilwale (20 Crores net range) and Kalank (18 Crores net range). The former won’t be counted as that was mainly Shah Rukh Khan’s movie. It will be impossible for Street Dancer 3D to cross Kalank’s figure. Ideally, it should be in the 9 to 10 Crores net range. I think it will fall short of double-digit if Mumbai doesn’t start big. Yes, there will be so many trade analysts and critics who were predicting 15-16 Crores net range opening. But, I don’t think it’s possible. The advance is less than Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior and Akshay Kumar’s Good Newwz. Both, these movies pick up high in Mumbai and North India respectively during evening time. But, Street Dancer 3D will struggle for that pick up. It’s not possible for dance movies to pick up at the same level as Good Newwz and Tanhaji due to no family audience appeal. So, 15-17 Cr opening is out of the question. If it gets a better start in Single Screens (which is unlikely due to lack of action dose) then there is a slight chance of scoring 12 Crores net opening. But, I still think it will fall behind double digit mark.
Suresh Rawat (Thane) : How much this Tax Free will help Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior in the long run ?
Answer : Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior is Tax-Free in the top two biggest States of India. Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. It will surely help in increase of net figure. Though, that hardly matters nowadays with new GST rule. It’s the gross figure which matters most. Yes, there is a solid chance to increase the tickets sold in these two territories for the long run. Haryana is also tax-free but that State is not as big as Maharashtra or Uttar Pradesh. Single Screens business will have more impact on this. May be on Republic Day the effect will be clearly noticed. One good thing with this Tax Free is that Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior can touch the figure of Baahubali 2 in the Mumbai belt in the long run. If that happens then it will be a MONSTER RECORD.
Ganesh Kumar (Bihar) : Since War, all the new movies failing to make a mark in Bihar recently. Which movie will be the first one in 2020 ?
Answer : Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior was not bad. Yes, it’s done HIT business. To get the level of War in the Bihar market you have to wait for Baaghi 3. This one has the potential to score big in this territory. The presence of Tiger Shroff will also give a big boost for that SUPER SRONG opening.
