Kartik Aaryan delivered ‘Bhool Bhullaiya 2’ last year and it changed the image of the actor. It was his first such a big hit out of Luv Ranjan universe. His interviews and media appearances showcased that he has taken this success very seriously.
Kartik made sure that his weaker film ‘Freddie’ released directly on ott as it would had been disaster in cinemas. Now his next ‘Shehzada’ is releasing in couple of days time. Film is remake of massive blockbuster of Allu Arjun. It has been touted as his next biggie.
All songs of films went flat and film has no Chartbuster. Also film was shifted by a week due to onslaught of Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ which seems to backfired as Marvel’s ‘Ant man’ set to open bigger than ‘Shehzada’.
Following are the advances for the film as of today morning (Tuesday 11:30 am):
Total tickets sold for Day 1: 57,277
Following are the box office predictions for the film:
Day 1: 7.5 cr nett
Weekend: 30 cr nett
(Saturday is holiday for Mahashivratri so film will jump little more than normal)
Lifetime: 58 cr nett
Seems like this will really struggle at box office and beyond weekend, it will be tough for the film. Also Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Selfiee’ will release next week which will also limit its box office prospects.
