Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra starrer "Brothers", which will be released on 14 August, will carry forward the box office success of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Baahubali – The Beginning" (Bahubali).
"Brothers" is a masala action drama coming from the director of "Agneepath" (2012) – Karan Malhotra. Produced by Karan Johar, the film features Akshay, Sidharth, Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez in prominent roles.
"Brothers" is said to be one of the biggest releases of 2015 since it's produced by Dharma Productions and is an official remake of Hollywood film "Warrior".
But what makes it one of the most awaited movies of this year is that it features the Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay, in the lead role and Sidharth, who is touted as one of the most successful new generation actors in the film industry.
The film is expected to have a smashing opening at the box office in India, as the hype surrounding the film is building up quite well. Also, the Independence Day holiday combined with Akshay-Sidharth-Karan Johar-Karan Malhotra jodi should help the film have a record breaking opening weekend.
Even trade analysts are hoping that "ache din" of Bollywood is back with back-to-back movies scoring well at the box office.
"Well, now with back to back successes of Bahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, we have got achche weeks as well. Hopefully, forthcoming lineup of Brothers, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani would bring on achche mahine as well. Industry needs them all to be Blockbusters. More, the merrier," box office expert Atul Mohan told Bollywood Hungama.
But it remains to be seen whether "Brothers" will emerge as the biggest opener for Akshay and Sidharth. Akshay's "Rowdy Rathore", which was released in 2012, holds the record of his highest opener with Rs 15 crore, while Sidharth starrer 2014 release "Ek Villain" minted Rs 16.72 crore.
So vote and tell us -- will "Brothers" become the biggest opener of Akshay and Sidharth?
