One of the most anticipated Bollywood films of the year, period action flick Prithviraj is set to hit silver screens the first week of June, Akshay Kumar tries out the title character of legendary Indian king Prithviraj Chauhan .
The film is special for so many reasons, here are the main takeaways that will interest you:
- The main reason is that the visual spectacle is based on the life of legendary warrior Prithviraj Chauhan who fought against Muhammad Ghouri in order to save India.
- The team researched the project extensively, according to media reports, 5000 costumes and 500 turbans were created for the film.
- Akshay starrer is made with a large-scale budget of Rs 300 Cr (est).
- This is the dream project of director Chandraprakash Dwivedi (famous Chanakya TV series), he waited for it for 15 years (2004-19).
Number of screens
As we mentioned above, the movie was reportedly made on a huge budget of Rs 300 crore, and according to reports, the makers are trying to fetch as many screens as possible for this cinematic spectacle. It would be shown on over 4000 screens in India alone.
Prithviraj will hit theaters on June 3, 2022, in three Indian languages Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. We therefore anticipate that advance reservations will open a week in advance or on May 27th.
Box office collection predictions
The only reason we didn’t include above is that the Bollywood industry is going through tough times, latest Hindi blockbuster movie The Kashmir Files was released on 11th March 2022. After that, biggies like Jersey, Attack, Runway 34, Heropanti2 and recently Jayeshbhai Jordaar, failed to charm moviegoers.
Amidst this situation, Bollywood desperately needed a big ticket movie to revive the industry, Prithviraj seems to be the movie that has the demand among Indian viewers, as we have recently seen action movies at two periods KGF2 and RRR grossed big and became the highest grossing film and also joined the prestigious Rs 1000 Cr club.
Considering all these facts and the trailer which created more buzz for the film, our prediction is that Akshay star will garner more Rs 30 Cr in the indoor market on the opening day. Buzz is not like KGF 2 and RRR, so we can expect a hit like Padmavat.
