With this spy thriller, ‘BellBottom,’ Akshay Kumar is poised to lure back the audiences to the theatres. Since the pandemic struck India in March 2020, this is the most important film to be released on the big screen. While the team is set to win hearts, the film will miss out on a significant portion of the market because it will not be released in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
What does the box office prediction for ‘BellBottom’ look like now that one of the most important circuits has been excluded? Read on for details.
The buzz surrounding the movie is positive, and the trailer has been well received. It’s the first major release in 17 months, and the anticipation is building by the minute. Advance bookings till Tuesday 6pm has collected 1.50 crore.
But the talks on the screen count are still ongoing because many movie theatres have yet to open. Many single-screen proprietors are undecided about reopening since they do not expect a steady stream of Bollywood releases.
It’s tough to place a figure on it because there will be so many unknown variables on day one. Each state has its own set of rules; Maharashtra is entirely closed. As a result, the release will be fragmented. There have been indications from the South and Punjab that the audience has returned.
What we estimate is that the film will launch in the Rs 6-6.5 crore area, which will be a strong start, but final results will depend on screen count, show count, and other things. Bell Bottom will be released in 2D and 3D cinemas on August 19th.
