It will be different war for onscreen Bajirao in Bajirao Mastani as he takes on the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan and his Dilwale on 18th December at the box-office.
While S R K has always had an upper hand over his opponents at the box-office, it remains to be seen if history will repeat itself again or be rewritten for the first time ever by Bajirao Mastani.
Bajirao Mastani has Taken Over Single Screen Theatres in India:
Screen numbers will matter for the first three days of Movie Release. More the number of screens for either Dilwale or Bajirao Mastani, greater will be the footfalls and larger the box-office collections.
Multiplex Profit Greater than Single Screens:
The contribution of single screen profits may not exactly outnumber multiplexes and with ‘Dilwale’ set to open in a big way in multiplexes especially in PVR which is also distributing the film, business will be divided. Explains distributor Anil Thadani, “Today the business of multiplexes are superior as compared to single screen theatres. They may have signed single screens but there are other cinemas in the circuit.
PVR as Distributors of Dilwale May not Make a Huge Dent:
Shah Rukh Khan’s masterstroke of getting PVR cinemas to distribute Dilwale. However, experts feel it won’t matter much because, as exhibitors PVR will have to screen both films (Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani).
“It won’t make much difference because if there are 12 shows of Dilwale there will be at least eight of Bajirao (Mastani)” said Sippy.
So, If you are a History Lover than go for Bajirao Mastani
and If you need a Complete Entertainment than Surely go fore Dilwale.
