After the huge success of Bodyguard followed by Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, films releasing after them did not do anything for the box office. Theatres were almost in a state of gloom with Sahib, Biwi and Gangster bringing about some respite to the empty ticket windows at cinema houses.
With RA.ONE released on Wednesday 26 October, all eyes are wide in anticipation for the huge release of this sci-fi action film starring Shahrukh Khan and Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor.
The film, which received great hype and was widely publicized by Shahrukh Khan, will have the biggest release ever with more than 3,000 theaters in India alone and 900 cinemas worldwide releasing the film simultaneously. This for sure will have a tremendous impact on the box office and predictions are already live that Anubhav Sinha’s RA.ONE will cross the 100-110 crore mark in the first five days of its release.
Apart from the brilliant production, the festive weekend that extends to a full five days will help boost the turnout at theatres across India while theatres will cash on the increased rates of tickets.
As per the reaction from the earlier Dubai premiere of the film, RA.ONE has everything a sci-fi superhuman film should have. It is actually not a copy of something from the west; in fact it has a very Indian storyline around which the film revolves. Which goes to say that it will be different and something the audiences will appreciate greatly.
We will know where the film stands tomorrow, when the RA.ONE releases at theatres near us!
