Bharat Screen Count, Budget & Box Office Prediction: All Set For A Big Opening

Bharat Screen Count, Budget & Box Office Prediction: Salman Khan’s Bharat is in theatres now, will it becomes Bollywood first 400 crore grosser?

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat is in theatres now. It is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. After the grand success of Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman Khan has once again collaborated with Ali Abbas Zafar. The expectations are huge from Bharat as it is releasing on Salman Khan’s favourite occasion.

Releasing on Eid day, Bharat is expected to take a good opening at the box office. The film has a big advantage of an extended Eid weekend. However, its box office fate depends on the word of mouth of the audience. Let’s have a detailed look at Bharat screen count, budget and box office prediction.

Bharat Box Office Prediction: Positives & Negatives

Positives

Salman Khan: Salman Khan is the biggest crowd puller in the country. His presence ensures that the movie gets a good start at the box office. Even a bad film like Race 3 crossed 100 crore mark in just 3 days.

Eid advantage: The film is releasing on Eid. It is considered one of the best release dates for Bollywood movies. In the last 10 years, 7 out of Salman’s 10 Eid releases emerged blockbuster at the box office.

The deadly combo of Salman and Ali Abbas Zafar: Salman and Ali have worked together twice before. Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai are among the top 5 highest grossing movies of Bollywood. So, we can expect another big hit from this Jodi.

Negatives

Clash with Cricket World Cup: Although Bharat is a solo Bollywood release of the week, it has to compete with Cricket World Cup starting on 30 June 2019. In fact, India’s opening match against SA is on the release date of the film i.e. 5 June 2019.

Buzz is low: Despite being in the news, Bharat fails to create the buzz and hype, we expect from Salman Khan movies.

Bharat is expected to release on around 4000 screens in India. Considering the release date and buzz, I am expecting the film to have a good opening at the box office. The opening day collection will definitely gets affected by Ind Vs SA match.

Some trade experts are expecting the film to earn 40+ crore on its opening day. However, I personally feel that it would be a tough task. I am expecting the film to earn 32 to 35 crore on the first day.

Expected Lifetime Collection of Bharat

Salman Khan is the king of the Indian box office. He has delivered as many as seven blockbusters on Eid in the last 10 years. With Bharat being one of the most awaited movies of the year, the expectations are big.

The box office fate of the film will depend on the word of mouth of the audience. If accepted by the audience then Bharat would easily cross 250 crore mark. If the audience rejects the movie then it would be tough for it to even cross 200 crore mark.

I have an opinion that Bharat would find it difficult after the initial euphoria. I am expecting its lifetime collection to be in the range of 225 to 250 crores.

Bharat Box Office Prediction: Based on WOM

If WOM turns out positive

Opening Day Collection: 32-35 crores
First Weekend Collection (5 days weekend): 150+ crores
First Week Collection: 200+ crores
Lifetime collection: 320+ crores

If WOM turns out mixed

Opening Day Collection: 32-35 crores
First Weekend Collection (5 days weekend): 125+ crores
First Week Collection: 160+ crores
Lifetime collection: 250+ crores

If WOM turns out negative

Opening Day Collection: 32-35 crores
First Weekend Collection (5 days weekend): 110+ crores
First Week Collection: 130+ crores
Lifetime collection: 170+ crores

Bharat is one of the most expensive films of Salman Khan’s career. It is estimated to be made in a budget of around 200 crores. It needs to earn around 250 crores to be called a hit at the box office.
