Ajay Devgn-starrer Shivaay is all set to be released on October 28 and advance booking for tickets have begun. It is one of the most awaited flicks of 2016 and trade experts are rooting for a huge box office collection for the film.
Directed by Ajay himself, Shivaay has been one of the most hyped movies ever since the first poster was released. The makers of the movie have been successful in maintaining the frenzy all around with the subsequent trailers and songs.
The trailer of Shivaay had received positive response from all quarters and trade experts have been asserting that it will be Ajay's biggest blockbuster ever. Early box office predictions of Shivaay suggest that the action-drama will have a huge opening day collection.
Ajay's highest opening day collection was registered by Singham Returns as it had earned Rs 32.09 crore nett at the Indian box office. It will be interesting to see if Shivaay surpasses the record figure on Friday.
While Shivaay is likely to witness a huge business on its first day, the weekend collection may not be as high as expected due to the festive season. Shivaay is likely to hike its collection Monday onwards.
Shivaay is touted to feature a very high standard of action sequences, but Ajay has been promoting the film as an emotional drama. This trick will probably attract both action loving audience as well as the family audience. The makers of the film have also been successful in creating curiosity around the film through its trailers, but have managed to keep the plot under wraps.
However, another much hyped film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will also hit the screens on the same day and is likely to eat up a major share of the collection. While it is hard to predict if Shivaay's first day earning beat ADHM opening day collection, trade experts opined that both the films will have huge start at the box office.
