Advance booking for Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s much awaited film ‘Brahmastra’ has started. This film of the two is going to be released in theaters soon.
Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt in Brahmastra
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Brahmastra’ is doing well at the box office even before its release. As of Wednesday night, a day before the film’s release, ‘Brahmastra’ tickets have been sold to the tune of Rs 23 crore. And more importantly out of the 23 crores almost half are coming from day one. This means that the film has already achieved the best number of advance bookings for any Hindi film post-pandemic and that’s when there are a whole day of advance bookings left.
The film earned around 23 crores before its release.
According to sources, ‘Brahmastra’ has sold 11 crore tickets in five languages across the country on its first day of release. Talking about the Hindi version alone, this number is more than 10 crores. Means Ayan Mukherjee’s film is far ahead of the Hindi version of ‘RRR’. ‘RRR’ sold Rs 7 crore tickets on the first day in advance bookings. However, it is miles behind the advance booking figures of ‘KGF’. For the Hindi version of ‘KGF Chapter 2’, an advance booking of Rs 40 crore was made and all languages combined Rs 80 crore.
11 crore from the Hindi version alone
According to an online portal report, the Hindi version of ‘Brahmastra’ has sold 22.25 crore tickets in its opening weekend. Whereas for the Telugu version, 98 lakh tickets were sold and for the Tamil version 11.1 lakh tickets were sold. The Kannada and Malayalam versions saw very little advance booking till Wednesday night.
To earn a bumper on the opening day
In this context, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s film ‘Brahmastra’ is heading towards a bumper opening. Looking at these figures it is easy to guess that the recently released Karthik Aaryan’s film ‘Bhool Bhulaya 2’ which opened with 14.5 crores and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ which opened with 26 crores. Farther ahead however, Ayan Mukherjee’s ‘Brahmastra’ will certainly be a challenge as Yash’s ‘KGF 2’ raked in Rs 54 crore on opening day.
‘Brahmastra’ releasing on September 9
For your information, we tell you that Ayan Mukerji’s directorial ‘Brahmastra’ is an epic fantasy whose first part is about to release. Officially titled ‘Brahmastra Part One: Shiva’, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. The film was made on a budget of Rs 410 crore, making it one of the biggest Indian films ever made. The film is set to release in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D worldwide on September 9.
