Tiger Shroff's "A Flying Jatt" is slated to be released on Aug. 25 and the movie is expected to witness a good opening at the box office. Although there are no other big ticket Bollywood movies releasing on the day, Akshay Kumar-starrer "Rustom" is still having a good hold in the theatres.
Being released on the holiday of Janmashtami, "A Flying Jatt" is expected to have a brilliant first day collection. The fact that it is a solo release further suggests that Tiger's film will make a good impact at the box office from day 1.
Meanwhile, "Rustom" has already crossed Rs. 100 crore mark at the domestic market and is still running strong at the box office, both in India as well as overseas. The film had entered the Rs. 100 crore club in just nine days of its release.
Directed by Remo D'Souza, "A Flying Jatt" is a much talked about movie as Tiger will be seen in the role of a super-hero for the first time. Tiger's previous two films "Heropanti" and "Baaghi" turned out to be hits with good opening day collection.
"Heropanti" had earned Rs. 6.63 crore at Indian box office on its first day and "Baaghi" went much higher with Rs. 11.94 crore on day 1. Both the films became hits with lifetime collection of Rs. 52.92 crore and Rs. 76.34 crore, respectively, at the Indian box office.
Considering the hype around "A Flying Jatt," Tiger's past box office records and the festival season, it is being predicted that the movie will have a good commercial run. The film will be released in around 2,500 to 2,600 screens. But in order to survive in the long run, the film has to gain positive reviews from critics and good word of mouth.
Nevertheless, "Rustom" can prove to be a big hurdle in its box office run, considering the good word of mouth for the film and its pace at the box office. Also, "Happy Bhag Jayegi" will have some share in the collection.
The movie "A Flying Jatt" also features Jacqueline Fernandez as female lead. Kay Kay Menon and Nathan Jones will be seen as the antagonists.
