Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherji have a job in hand. They must continue the momentum set by Sooryavanshi. Of course, they cannot aim for a great start that the Akshay Kumar starrer had taken on Diwali. However, they are expected to be at least closer to the kind of songs that movies belonging to such genre enjoyed during pre-pandemic times especially 2019 which was the best year ever for Bollywood in terms of cumulative collections of Hindi movies .
Back then, lighthearted films like these managed collections at Rs. 7-10 crores range on opening day. Bala [Rs. 10.15 crores], dream girl [Rs. 10.05 crores], The De Pyaar De [Rs. 9.42 crores], Pati Patni aur Woho [Rs. 9.10 crores], Luka Chuppic [Rs. 8.01 crores], Chhichhore [Rs. 7.32 crores] all got off to a good start and eventually emerged as winners at the box office. utilities Bunty Aur Babli 2 would expect the same.
That said, one has to be careful here as times are still different when it comes to the audience’s footsteps in theatres. Sooryavanshi may have opened at Rs. 26.29 crores but in the pre-pandemic times it could very well have reached Rs. 35 million dollars. Likewise, even Bunty Aur Babli 2 can’t be expected to do the same kind of business it could have been without the pandemic. Hence, it would be wise to predict that an opening day of Rs. There is 4-5 crores at stake, and if that turns out to be the case, it would be good enough to start.
