Box Office predictions: Saaho shows potential to beat Avengers: Endgame opening day collection
New Delhi : Starring Shraddha Kapoor and Prabahas in the lead roles, Saaho is all set to release on August 30 in India. Being the most anticipated movie release this year, Saaho will be competing against the hits like Avengers: Endgame and Kabir Singh.
According to the predictions made by trade analyst Girish Johar, the Hindi version of the film is likely to get an opening of around Rs 15-20 crores.
"The buzz is very good. Prabhas and Shraddha are among the top actors and the response to the trailer is outstanding. It is a non-festive but a very wide release in Hindi. A non-holiday opening of Rs 15-20 crore would be fantastic, considering how some Bollywood actors struggle to deliver an opening of even Rs 10 crore," he said.
Saaho will also be released in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Talking about the opening of the film in the south, Girish said, "The film should open at roughly Rs 35 crore in Telugu, Rs 15 crore in Tamil and Rs 3-5 crore in Malayalam. The film should open across India at around Rs 60-70 crore in all languages."
Now, if his predictions come right then the film will easily break the record of the highest Bollywood opener, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer, Thugs of Hindostan, which opened at Rs 50 crore. It can also beat the opening day figures of Avengers: Endgame, which made Rs 53 crore on day one.
Saaho will be released in 5000-6000 screens across India.
The film, which releases this Friday, also stars Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Chunky Panday, Arun Vijay, Mandira Bedi and Mahesh Manjrekar.
