Question: Can Aamir Khan’s PK break the opening records of his own film Dhoom 3 and Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year? – Sohail (Kanpur)
Answer: Because PK releases on a working day, the opening day collections of Happy New Year is out of reach. Breaking the records of Dhoom 3, which released on a working day, would be tough too.
We spoke to a few exhibitors and distributors about the same. Most believe the collections will be somewhere between 25-28 crore on Day 1, which is excellent for a working day. At best, the 30 crore mark would be surpassed, is what they say. The reason is, PK has limited appeal towards the masses and at smaller centres would rely on word-of-mouth.
At multiplexes the film will be huge, but release on a working day will mean that the chances of 35 cr+ is very less.
Question: Will the release of Rajnikanth’s Lingaa this week (12th December) affect the business of PK? – Gaurav
Answer: If Lingaa does affect PK, the impact would only be felt in South Indian states like Tamilnadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Even in these centres, PK has huge pre-release buzz. ‘Class movies’ like these tend to perform well in Tamilnadu and Mysore circuit, so unless PK disappoints, Lingaa won’t affect the Aamir Khan starrer.
