Tiger Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez-starrer "A Flying Jatt" is set to witness a great opening at the box office on Thursday, Aug.25. The movie is expected to surpass Rs.100 crore mark in the domestic market.
Tiger, who is just two films old, has proved his mettle with his fine acting, daredevil stunts and impressive dancing skills in both the films. While his debut film "Heropanti" did a first day business of Rs. 6.63 crore at the domestic market, "Baaghi" had collected Rs. 11.94 crore on its opening day. Also, both "Heropanti" and "Baaghi" made a lifetime collection of Rs. 52.92 crore and Rs. 76.34 crore net, respectively, at the Indian box office.
Since both the films had witnessed a good opening, "A Flying Jatt" has the potential to outdo the opening day collection of "Baaghi," at least in the domestic market. This is the first time Tiger and ace choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza have teamed up for a film. The dancer duo has undoubtedly soared the expectations of movie-goers.
Remo has already given the audience two successful films — "ABCD: Any Body Can Dance" and "ABCD 2." Since "ABCD 2" had entered the Rs.100 crore club at the Indian box office, "A Flying Jatt" is expected to cross the milestone as well.
"A Flying Jatt" is an Indian superhero film, which is expected to draw children and adults alike to theatres. Although several Hollywood movies have witnessed a tremendous opening at the Indian box office, the subject of superheroes has not been explored much by Indian filmmakers. Hence, Tiger's film is likely to attract viewers who are ardent followers of the genre.
Since the film is being released on a holiday (Janmashtami festival), it is predicted that "A Flying Jatt" will break several opening day box office collection records. Also, Remo's film is unlikely to face any trouble at the box office since no big ticket projects are coming out this weekend.
Last week's release, "Happy Bhag Jayegi," starring Abhay Deol and Diana Penty, which is running at a slow pace at the box office, is unlikely to pose any threat to "A Flying Jatt." The other film currently running in theatres — Akshay Kumar's "Rustom" — has been raking in huge money at the box office since its release two weeks back, and is nearing its lifetime collection.
