My Name Is Khan Box Office Prediction

These predictions are real hard to get right, simply because box office is very unpredictably and a lot depends on the merits of a film. But a film like My Name Is Khan, irrespective of how it turns out to be, is likely to open to huge numbers. The first weekend will no doubt be record breaking, both overseas and India.

Here is our prediction for the year’s most awaited release – My Name Is Khan directed by Karan Johar starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol!

  • Opening weekend – 30 crores minimum, could even be as high as 38 – 40 crores including paid previews.
  • Week 1 (if loved): 60 crores plus, could easily beat Ghajini.
  • Week 1 (if mixed): 55 – 60 crores
  • Week 1 (if disliked): 50 – 53 crores
  • Lifetime (if loved): 110 – 120 crores. The repeat value is unlikely to be as high as 3 Idiots.
  • Lifetime (if mixed): 100 – 110 crores.
  • Lifetime (if disliked): 75 – 80 crores

Overseas, the film is likely to beat the record of 3 Idiots even if the reactions are mixed, mainly due to the wide release and the SRK – Karan – Kajol fan-following. $20 million plus is a possibility if the film is loved.

Indian box office numbers will be more interesting though, here are some reasons why

  • Aamir Khan currently holds the record for two of the biggest money spinners ever – Ghajini and 3 Idiots. While MNIK is not expected to break the records set by 3 Idiots, it will be interesting to see if the film can beat the 15 month old Ghajini in India.
  • Can MNIK beat the opening weekend record of 3 Idiots?
  • Can MNIK beat the opening week record of Ghajini or even 3 Idiots?

Do tune into Indicine. We’ll keep you updated on My Name Is Khan.

    Shankar Ehsaan Loy r awesome music directors, they r the best after a.r.rahman.

    As for MNIK like it or not will take a huge opening,friday’s seats r sold out on the 2’nd day of advance here in kolkata.Let’s hope the movie doesn’t dissapoints me.

  • brishti nice to know bengali peoples also here but if u say bengalis r very choosy about acting then how a actor like prosenjit became such a huge star in bengal? he is really pathetic

  • Promos are also very boring . I am not impressed at all . Srk’s last two films thrashed at the box office. hopefully that will no occure again . best of luck .

  • my prediction for mnik friday 13 crore,saturday 12.50 crore, sunday 14 crore weekend 38crore maybe more 1st week 70 crore lifetime 130crore+ overseas maybe 150 crore+ lets see

  • dipen last 2 srk muvis r record breaking blockbuster oso brroke the record of dhoom2 and rabne broke oso but maybe this time it will get close to 3idiots maybe in the range of 180 crore is possible but will fall just short for sure if its a great muvi as well its my prediction

  • Reports are not good . so my prediction for this film will be

    1st Weekend 17 Crores
    1st week 30 Crores

    2nd week 8 crores

    Lifetime will be 43 Crores

    Verdict – Below average

  • @bristi its Zahid….glad to hear that u from kolkata…:) m bangali too but from other site of the border….

    @dipen shankar ehasaan loy gave some really gud song at past bt yeah they r nt at there best dis days..according to many critics their music was a big letdown for LD too….

  • SRK’s acting look like artificial not real in this film . Aamirs acting is natural, fres & fluent in every films .

  • Hina: for me.. both Kurban and KANK were good movies.. KANK wasn’t bad at the box office, wasn’t a flop movie and it was a big interesting movie.. we, the family members and some friends enjoyed watching it..I think it didn’t do so well in yr country because the audience rejected the ending.

    And don’t feel sad Hina if Veer wasn’t a hit movie.. Salman is a powerful actor, everyone just love him.. and he’ll do some good movies for sure in future, i thought Salman’s career was over after the movie Yuvraaj but I was wrong.. he came back with his movie Wanted & London Dreams and proved that he deserves to be among the 5 biggest stars of bollywood although LD didn’t do well in yr country.. and that was really shocking! you should feel sorry for this movie that it didn’t do well because it deserved to be a hit but Veer in fact, got what it deserved!

  • Q. Anil Sharma has claimed that Veer has been watched by more people than many major hits. Is this true?

    A. Box Office success is judged by the money though technically actual success is amount of people watching the film. It is true that Veer has been watched by more people than other hits as it is being watched mainly in theatres with low ticket rates and high entertainment taxes. The average ticket value for a film like Love Aaj Kal is probably about 100-110 while for Veer it’s probably 50-60 so this means that Veer has had more admissions. If your film works in circuits like the ones Veer has you will a lot of people watching the film but as ticket prices are low, the business will not be that high. The film is probably amongst top ten films in last three years if we go by actual tickets sold and that is a great way to judge a film from public point of view but box office is always judged from economics point of view.

  • My Name Is Khan may well create a stampede at the box office in International markets going by the demand for prints across all International markets.

    The mnik is looking to release on over 550 prints. My Name Is Khan is looking at a 200 print release in North America and also a humongous 200 plus prints in Europe. Normally Europe has around 75 prints for a big release with 50 going to United Kingdom and around 25 for rest of Europe.

    My Name Is Khan due to craze of Shahrukh Khan in Europe will have 100 prints in United Kingdom alone and over 100 in the rest of Europe. The film is huge demand in Germany and Poland.

    The gulf region is expected to see a 50 print release while Australia is around 30 prints. My Name Is Khan has the potential to become the first film to cross the 100 crore mark from international markets if it lives up to the enormous hype it has created in Overseas markets.

  • Mystic River
    i never jeolous but some sallu fans said something bad about srk thts why im against all sallu fans. see my comments during dec-09 , i supported all actors but when i saw, these sallu fans spread wrong nad bad news, info abou srk, then i decided to go against sallu fans.

  • Mystic River
    i dont know nothing about megha. i think she saw veer again thts why she is not comments in indicine.
    hehehe
    one thing i wanna ask you thta, u reallly like veer?? im fan of srk, but his asoka one of the worst film in made in india.
    i appreciate only quality things,
    in star
    srk,bigb and amir
    actresses
    kajol,priyanka and vidya

  • Hei zahid, i am from bangladesh too………nice to see u on this site………

    hei NEUMAN where r u??????????? i need ur web address………..

    this is for all bollywood lover………

  • My prediction for mnik –
    India – 100 core
    overseas – 100 core.

    overall, blockbuster for sure.

    but cant beat 3 idiots in india……:)

  • @Fathiya ..Oh M not sad at all.Coz Salman’s Veer did well at box-office.Yeah I agree with you ending of KANK was hard to digest n same goes 4 Kurbaan.I really love SRK-KJohar work in KKHH,K3G and KHNH.Btw how do u rate the music of MNIK? Recent promos of MNIK are good.I only have one problem with this movie dat is I dun want terrorism being shown in movies.

    Really I dunu why this topic is raised again n again:

    1)Fanna 2)Black and White 3)NewYork 4) Kurbaan 5)MNIK

    I am Pakistani.But literally one movie Khuda K liye it has all n its the best movie on this topic so far.From Fanna till kurban I have always noted that Bollywood movies haven’t been well reserached out.Just watch Khuda K liye every dialogue is so influential.Shoaib Mansoor has presented the real meaning of Islam so beautifully.Bollywood movies are full of flaws when they take such a sensitive topic.I really wish MNIK changes the mind set n sets new standard.N SRK becomes influential in this role.

  • Music is very poor…….Dont know what hpnd to Shanker Ehsaan Loy .This music remindz me of tere naam same type of composition but i wll prefer A R REHMAN…He should hve given blockbuster music…Then i would prefer Himesh (only as music director not singer) & at last Pritam ( hit machine)..
    About movie i wll say it wll do good at box office…Wll cross 100 crore mark…

  • @ Hina: No I am not new here but I m not a regular visitor…. That was why I couldn’t notice your previous comments……. But ur recent comments show that you are a big fan of Salman Khan and you try to defend him even if he doesn’t deliver…So that was why I notified you and Fathiya as Fathiya is SRK’s fan and she doesn’t want anyone to say anything against him even if he didn’t act well in those movies…

    We expect a lot from our favourite stars and when they don’t live upto the expectations, we try to defend them even if their movie is not that good…..My point is that we should be honest by heart….If you don’t like the movie then you should have the courage to say that even if the movie belongs to ur fav star like in your case “VEER” was not that good, we all know that but we are trying to defend just because it’s a Slaman Khan’s movie…..Script and Direction was very weak in VEER. For me it is just a below average movie…..

    MNIK is a little bit different in content…..The main difference is “SRK is not a terrorist in this movie” whereas in Fanna, New York and Kurbaan (Amir, John and SAK were terrorists)…..So it will definitely change the mind set…. Let’s hope that the movie lives upto the expectations…..

  • @shahid glad to hear dat……….the name of that site (-DO NOT POST LINKS TO SITE WITH ILLEGAL CONTENT-)

    @adii it does nt make any sense to go all out against salman khan nd all sallu fans bcoz someone said bad about srk..lame cause …

    when d movie asoka realease at dt time Americans were bombarding all over in Afghanistan killing lots of innocent peoples…destroying everything….i gt a really grt massage through dis movie ..PEACE nd to me dis movie ws nt dat bad at all..
    .nd about veer!! leave it …there will be another never ending story ….again :)

  • @Fahad ..Well I can say is just check out my comments 4 next few days n u will get to what sort of Person I am.May be ur mind set will also change abt me :) Yeah I know Kajol is terrorist in MNIK but b4 watching movie no comments at all.
