Set in the 1940s, Kalank may topple the box office records of the top earners of 2019, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Total Dhamaal, Kesari and Gully Boy. Girish Johar feels the team Kalank is, “eyeing the bullseye at the box office.” According to him, the film is releasing in over 3000 screens and he feels, “All is benefiting it, be it a huge scale, ‘A’ grade ensemble cast and a good setup. Depending upon the feedback of the audience it may go up as well but even it falls down, it won’t go down below Rs 15 crore.”
However, for Dharma Productions’ head honcho Karan Johar, Kalank is beyond box office numbers and is a “labour of love”. The songs have also been lapped up by the audience. People will at least watch it once. 0
Comment(s) I peg the film’s day one collection anywhere around Rs 18-20 crore. The makers are looking at a mammoth release and are eyeing maximum numbers before Avengers: Endgame release on April 26. Advertising
“Kalank is coming from one of the topmost production houses, Dharma, which is the pioneer of making mega-budget movies. Predicting a double-digit opening, he added, “To top it all, Kalank has Varun, Alia, Madhuri, Sanjay, Sonakshi and Aditya. It will be the first preference of moviegoers also because there are no other options,” suggested film trade analyst Girish Johar. Having a long weekend, I expect a good start as it looks big. It will definitely be a big summer release. Releasing in the middle of the week, it is cashing in on the holiday of Mahavir Jayanti. Also, the extensive promotions have increased the awareness level among the audience.”
Now, if the period drama will dominate the box office in the coming days and will enter the Rs 100 crore club in its opening weekend will be known soon.
