The first quarter of 2019 has been a huge success for Bollywood, as numerous Hindi offerings like- Uri The Surgical Strike, Total Dhamaal, Gully Boy, Kesari, Luka Chuppi & Badla have hit the target right at the box office. Now the second quarter has started & another biggie Kalank is all set to hit theatres two days earlier on Wednesday i.e. 17 April.
Starring Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan & Aditya Roy Kapur in lead roles, the period drama Kalank is the biggest film of the year so far with whopping production cost & solid star power. Also, the makers have left no strong unturned while promoting the film.
Produced by big production banners- Dharma Productions, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment & Fox Star Studios, Kalank is releasing on more than 3000 screens across India and the report says, it has recorded a good response at the ticket windows pre-release. So positively, the film is expected to take a strong start at the box office.
Looking at the previous records, Karan Johar’s last month released period war drama Kesari had registered the biggest opening of the year with 21.06 crores. Last year’s Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Padmaavat was opened at 19 crores despite a partial ban in several states.
After considering the records & current scenario like the ongoing IPL & upcoming Avengers: Endgame, Abhishek Varman’s directorial Kalank seems capable to open at a range of 17-18 crores nett. If the audience reacts in its favor, Fox Star Studios’ presentation could register the highest opening weekend of the year so far.
