Bharat Box Office Prediction: Considering the success of previous collaborations of Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar (Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai) and the Salman fandom, film trade analysts have predicted a good opening for Bharat.
Will Salman Khan’s next release, Bharat, be a gift for his fans at the Eid festival? Film commerce analyst Girish Johar believes that Salman’s films have become part of Eid’s festivities, so the drama of the period will have a good opening at the box office. However, given that content is the driving force these days, it is director Ali Abbas Zafar who will be the “decisive factor in this game.”
Girish said: “Given that the audience has many options in terms of content due to the influx in the number of web series, Bharat has to match the expectations of the audience. For me, definitely, Salman will open, but Ali Abbas Zafar is the key to this film. ”
Some trade analysts assume that the failure of the last two releases of Salman’s Eid (Race 3 and Tubelight) could affect Bharat. But Girish Johar differs in his opinion. “Seeing Salman’s record, the detractors say that this time he will be a bit cautious, which I do not think is true.” It’s a Salman Khan movie at the end of the day. He will undoubtedly benefit from his fandom, “he said.
Considering the success of the previous collaborations of Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar (Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai) and the Salman fandom, Girish predicted an opening of Rs 35 for Bharat. “Due to a broad release on more than 4000 screens, I will link the Bharat collection from the first day of the box office at Rs 35 crore.”
The film is made with a budget of Rs 120 to Rs 130 crore, including printing and promotions, and will be released in about 4,500 screens in India. As it will be launched on June 5, it may have a little less traction due to the match of the World Cup of India against South Africa, the first match of India in the tournament.
When it comes to competition, the film can enter a battle with Hollywood offered by Dark Phoenix of the X-Men franchise. Salman’s previous releases during Eid have made opening records and proof of this are films like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, Ek Tha Tiger and Race 3 that accumulated Rs 40.3 crore, Rs 36.5 crore, Rs 34.1 crore , Rs 32.92 crore and Rs 29.1 crore, respectively.
