YOU ASKED IT | 27 April, 2019

Can Avengers: Endgame join the 400-crore club in India?

– It jolly well can! Going by the phenomenal initial and the fabu­lous public reports, it is very possible for the film to net Rs. 400 crore-plus in India.

What kind of an opening is the trade expecting Bharat to take?

– Earth-shattering! The title val­ue of the film is immense. Plus, it stars Salman Khan and it will relea­se in the Eid week. Further, the first trailer has been very well-received.

Will Hindi film producers emulate the example of Avengers: Endgame and hold shows round the clock for their films too?

– It makes sense to hold shows round the clock only if the regular shows are house-full in advance at most places. If any Hindi film can generate the kind of advance booking as witnessed for AVENGERS: ENDGAME, it would be sensible to have shows round the clock.
