Brahmastra To Beat Dangal & Dhoom 3 Record In Telugu & Also Become Highest Grossing Hindi Film In Other South Markets Too, Numbers Inside!

There is good news for Bollywood. Director Ayan Mukerji’s latest movie Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva has generated real interest at the box office, not just in the Hindi belt but in parts of south India too. It’s very comforting news to the embattled Hindi film industry.

The Telugu version of Brahmastra got the stamp of approval from director SS Rajamouli, who is India’s first director to deliver back-to-back movies that earned more than Rs 1000 crore globally from ticket sales. And Rajamouli has been promoting Brahmastra as one of his own.

As per some sources in the Telugu film industry, Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 made a net collection of Rs 4 crore on its opening day and collected around Rs 20 crore, including the Telugu version, in its entire theatrical run there. Deepak remembered that Dhoom 3’s Telugu version opened to packed houses back then. And like the rest of India, Aamir’s Dangal continues to hold the record of the highest earning Hindi film even in the Telugu states.

Brahmastra has to overtake the collections of Dangal to be considered a success given its high-production cost. Brahmastra should collect Rs 25 crore in the Telugu states as Dangal had done Rs 22 crore.

Brahmastra has a huge star cast, including Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna. And it reportedly has a cameo appearance by Shah Rukh Khan. This is the biggest Hindi film, in terms of its star value and the production cost (Rs 400 crore), to come out in a long time. And it seems the environment is very conducive to set a new box office benchmark for a Hindi film in the country. The film is releasing on over 5000 screens in India alone.

The movie is releasing on more than 100 screens in Kerala, which is considered the highest number for a Hindi film in recent years. In Tamil Nadu, the movie will open on as many as 250 screens, which is at least 100 screens more than what Laal Singh Chaddha got.

Film should cross lifetime collections of Dangal and Dhoom 3 in Telugu and other south region too to emerge as highest grosser Hindi film down south.

Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva is the first film from the trilogy and it’s due to arrive in cinemas on September 9.
