Badrinath Ki Dulhania Box Office Prediction

Badrinath Ki Dulhania marks the reunion of two of the most promising young stars in the industry. Varun Dhawan, like most of us know by now, has a 100% success ratio as a solo hero. Alia Bhatt has been in phenomenal form too. Her 2016 films; Kapoor & Sons, Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi – were all successful at the box office and also won her critical acclaim.

It’s a franchise film too, a love story set in the heartland of India. Such films, which appeal to the core Hindi belt, are very rarely made in the industry. And even if they are, it’s only the biggest of stars like Salman and Aamir Khan who attempt such universal films. It probably needed a director from a small town like Shashank Khaitan to make a film that they hope would connect with the pan-India audience.

The music has worked big – almost all the songs in the album have done well with the title track, Tamma Tamma Again and Humsafar topping the list.

There a few downsides too as the release period isn’t the best. The younger section of the audience, the core fanbase of both Varun and Alia, have exams. March is possibly the weakest period for film business too, as the all-time highest grosser of March is last year’s Kapoor & Sons, which fell well short of the 80 crore mark. So, March is the only month of the year that doesn’t yet have a 100-crore grosser. Will this be the first?

IndicineFBO: As far as the first day collections of the film is concerned, we expect Badrinath Ki Dulhania to take a good opening tomorrow morning. The day should end with net collections of 11-12 crore. Our official IndicineFBO prediction for the film is 11.6 crore.

Lifetime (total) business would obviously depend on content. But if the film finds acceptance, especially with the family audience, Badrinath Ki Dulhania could have a long and successful run at the box office. There isn’t any major competition in the next 2-3 weeks with the biggest being Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri, which is a niche film. Acceptance and love from the audience could take this beyond the 100 crore mark.

  • My prediction- 10-12 crores opening day
    Kong Skull Island will affect it in multiplexes and Logan is also having a decent run

  • I like varun but it seems this will not work at bo.. reviews in dubai are extremely negative.. given 1 out of 5 stars.. maybe will be the first flop of varun

  • it will take opening more than akki jolly llb 2 since stardom of varun>akki and will also collect more than crap jolly llb 2 and nakaabil will be 2nd highest grosser of the year

  • after this varun will have another 100 crore movie in non holiday on his kitty and our great christmas teddy bear still dont have 100 crore on non holiday

  • Akki should release his film in March it will definetly collect 100 crore . In Feb month not single film collected 100 crore but akki did it , in march not single film collected 100 crore then akki film will collect 100 crore .
    All the best to badrinath ki dulhaniya .
    First day 11
    Second day 13
    Third day 15
    Week 65
    Lifetime 90
    Verdict hit .

  • Lol…Varun _> Akshay?
    Which deluded Fan are you? Tell Varun to first cross Ranveer Ranbir Sushant Sidharth Solo opening day and lifetime.
    Kaabil despite Clash is still a well appreciated movie , Jllb2 got more than what people expected that too on a February which no actor has done considering the genre and dull febuary date and you are bashing both movies??

    Varun appreciated Akshays hard work on media already so what’s the point coming here and spreading negativity to others_?
    Varun can’t do what Hrithik did in Kaabil.
    He is an immensely talented Top draw at box office no doubts but even next 10 years comparing him with other decades established stars is not commendable.

    Respect is Reciprocal… Stop using Shah Rukh name to be talking trash over here.
    We all are wishing Varun n Lee babes the very best that’s what is expected from you for this type of article.

  • varun at this age is better than christmas aamir,akki,ajay etc in future he and sushant will have a big competition ranbir ranveer will not be megastars like varun and sushant post it dont be biased

  • @Srk’s zebra fan : First wash your own & your idol’s then think about washing others’ why are you unnecessarily abusing top superstars and inviting hatred for Srk ???
