Shaandaar Box Office Prediction:
Shaandaar is an upcoming romantic comedy film directed by Vikas Bahl. It stars Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. Shaandaar will release on 22 October 2015.
Today we are gonna discuss about Shaandaar box office prediction. The opening day, weekend and lifetime collection will be predicted in this article.
Shahid Kapoor has been in the news for a while now. The talented actor received huge appreciation for his role in Haider. Later on he sweeped all the awards for best actor at all major award functions. Recently he got married to Mira Rajput.
Shahid Kapoor's last two release Haider and R. Rajkumar has been decent success at the box office. But his overall box office record is very average. His last hit before R.Rajkumar was Jab We Met way back in 2007. In this span he has been featured in 10 films. But he is all set to change his fortune with Shaandaar.
Alia Bhatt has only featured in four films till now. But she enjoys a huge fan following especially among youth and has become one of the most demanding actress now. The credit for the opening of the film will also be given to her.
The director Vikas Bahl's last film Queen was a big success, both critically and commercially. The goodwill of that film can help Shaandaar a bit. But there will be huge pressure on him to prove that he is not a one film wonder. As we all know what happened to OMG! Oh My God's fame director Umesh Shukla's recent release All Is Well.
The trailer of the film was received very well by youth while the music has also been picked up. The songs like Gulaabo and Shaam Shaandaar are chartbusters. The film has been promoted very well and has generated huge buzz and hype. This solid marketing was missing from Dharma's last production Brothers.
The release date is tricky. It has the advantage of Dussera but on the other hand there is Muharram also when Muslim tend to avoid films. It is also pre-Diwali period which is not so good for box office.
Shaandaar will take one of the best opening of this year at multiplexes. It will be highest opener for both Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. It can drop on Saturday as it is releasing on a holiday and then it will again pick up on Sunday.
But after the healthy weekend, it will be completely dependent on word of mouth. As the release period is not favourable. So we can witness big drops on weekdays if the film does not live up to the expectations.
Day 1: 14.5 Cr
