Street Dancer 3D starring Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi in lead roles, is all set to hit the screens today. The film may face tough competition from Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior, which is still going strong after two weeks at the ticket windows.
Film trade analyst Girish Johar says that Street Dancer 3D will dominate the ticket counters on day 1 and should open at around Rs 15 crore. He told Hindustan Times, ''Both the films look good. The audience loved the trailer and songs of Street Dancer 3D trailer. It is a mass entertainer and specifically targets the youth. It is a typical masala popcorn film loved by the moviegoers and has a stylish feel to it.''
Film exhibitor Akshay Rathi is confident Street Dancer 3D will not collect less than Rs 15-16 crore. He told HT, ''Atleast when it comes to opening, Street Dancer 3D will have a big release for practical purposes. It is a fantastic film. It could not be a Disney property like ABCD and ABCD 2 but it is from the same world. The two films were big. It is popular among the youth and in India. All Varun, Shraddha, Nora and Prabhudeva are popular stars.''
The film will release alongside Panga featuring Kangana Ranaut in a lead role. The film revolves around the comeback of a kabaddi player after she left the sport to get married and become a mother. Stressing on how the film will require a positive word of mouth to rule the box office, he said, ''Panga trailer was very good. At the end of the day, its a socially relevant, light-flavoured and emotional film. Its an uplifting film for women folk that they can still pursue their dreams even after marriage. It targets the upmarket, mature 30-35 age group and will majorly depend on good word of mouth. Kangana has a huge fan following and her films are liked by the moviegoers.''
Reacting to their clash at the ticket counters, he said, ''Both are different kind of films, one is an opening film and other a long running film. Thankfully, both of them garner to different target audiences and can perform well together.''
Well, it would be quite interesting to see the box-office clash this weekend. Which movie are you going to watch today?
