'Zero' to release tomorrow, earn over Rs 30 crores on opening day at Box Office
New Delhi : Shah Rukh Khan's much-awaited movie 'Zero' is all set to release in theatres on Friday (December 21, 2018). With less than 24 hours left in the release a lot of speculations are being made over the business it is expected to do on the Box Office.
Exhibitor Akshaye Rathi has already declared it a blockbuster and expects a good opening on the Box Office, even in the worst case scenario.
Talking to zoom, he said, “It has Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif and it’s an Aanand L Rai film. So, it technically has all the elements that go on to make a blockbuster. Let’s hope that audiences go and watch this film and it drops great numbers.”
While Akshaye said the film will do a good business, he remain hesitant in claiming that the film could enter Rs 300 crore club like a breeze.
“There is also KGF that is coming along and there is also Simmba that is coming a week later that may affect the business of Zero to a certain degree,” the film exhibitor added.
Making predictions over the earning of the film on the opening day at the Box Office, he said, “I think, in the worst case scenario, the film should make around Rs 30 crore on Day 1. If the reviews turn out to be positive, the collections may go up as well.”
Directed by Anand L Rai, the film has been produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions. It also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma as the female leads.
