Dilwale is releasing this Friday starring Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles.
The production cost of Diwale is approx 85 crore while 25 crore more have been spent on marketing. So Dilwale budget is around 110 crore. This does not include Shahrukh Khan's fee as the film has been produced by himself.
Diwale is expected to release in around 2900 screens. The film is clashing with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani so the screens will be shared. Even then Dilwale screen count is very good as most of high end multiplexes has been booked by Shahrukh Khan. The film will also get more shows than BM.
The film has to collect around 125 crore to be in the safe zone. Anything over 200 crore will make it a super hit. It will become blockbuster over 250 crore. The film is very much a safe bet as the major chunk of investment has already been recovered.
The run time of Dilwale is 2 hours 35 minutes. This is less than SRK's last release Happy New Year but slight more than Chennai Express.
The early reports are excellent for Dilwale. In fact Dilwale team has shown parts of the film to some of the distributors. The distributors are confident that the product will work very well at the box office. The pre release buzz and hype is on an all time high. The music has also become chartbuster.
Keeping in mind the screen count and release day (non holiday), we expect Dilwale to open around 70-80% on Friday.
