Tiger Shroff’s “A Flying Jatt” releases on Aug. 25, Thursday, and as per early estimates it may beat the opening day box office collection of “Mohenjo Daro,””Baaghi” and “Heropanti.” The superhero film is looking at cashing in on the Krishna Janmasthami holiday.
There are no big releases this Friday, which means the film gets a one-week window to run solo until Sept. 2, when Sonakshi Sinha’s “Akira” arrives in theatres. Also, “Rustom” may be going steady, but it has slowed down and may soon round off its run at the box office with an impressive triple digit figure.
The night shows had heavy falls as tomorrow is a working day and the response was also not encouraging. Meanwhile, the heavy rains in many parts of the country did affect the collection a lot in the evening. It is going to collect much less now and all will depend on how it fairs on Friday.
Directed by Remo D’Souza, the film stars Tiger as India’s youngest superhero. The Flying Jatt also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Amrita Singh in important roles. Hollywood baddie Nathan Jones is playing the baddie in thsi film with traces of Spiderman, Superman and Krrish. According to sources, occupancy remained at 25-30 percent at most places. The film is targeted towards children and the weekend is likely to bring some good collection.
A Flying Jatt 2nd day collection is expected to be around 5 crore. Made on a budget of Rs. 45 crore (inclusive of Rs. 10 crore for promotions), “A Flying Jatt” may be able to break even over its first weekend. The Tiger-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer has already recovered Rs. 20 crore from its satellite rights deal.
