At the box office, Aayush-Salman’s ‘Antim’ competes with John Abraham’s ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’. The film released on Thursday. But despite John’s triple role, the condition of ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’ is also bad. While ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’ has earned Rs 2.75 crore at the box office on the first day on Thursday, ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ which released on Friday has got an opening of Rs 4.50 crore. However, it is expected that the film’s earnings will increase on the weekends on Saturday and Sunday.
…so would have earned only 1.5 crores
However, market experts say that it is a good start according to the opening day and the budget of the film. Trade analysts believe that in the current era, as the audience is not fully returning to the theaters, in such a situation, if Salman Khan was not in the supporting role in the film, then the film would have earned Rs 1-1.5 crore on the first day. Due to Salman’s star power, the film has reached the figure of 4.5 crores. There is a weekend ahead, in such a situation, the earnings will increase further, it is certain.
The final blow to ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’
The maths of ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’ has also gone haywire due to the release of ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ on Friday at the box office. The film has suffered a loss of around 40-50 per cent. A big reason for this is that ‘Antim’ has been released on about 3500 screens. After the lockdown, 100 percent audience has now been allowed to sit in cinemas. The way ‘Sooryavanshi’ has rocked the box office in the past, the makers and the industry have started returning.
Will earn 18-20 crores by the weekend
‘Antim’ has got decent reviews from film critics. Salman Khan also has star power. In such a situation, box office experts say that ‘Antima: The Final Truth’ will easily earn Rs 18-20 crore in the first weekend. While its lifetime earnings can be around Rs 50 crore.
