Shamshera day 1 box office collection (early estimates): Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt, the YRF’s biggie is finally in theatres now and will be soon wrapping up its opening day at the ticket windows. Where does the film is going on its first day of release? Will it be among the top Bollywood openers of 2022 or will it end up crashing? Let’s take a look.
Helmed by Karan Malhotra, the film was awaiting its release for a long time. It was announced way back in 2018 and if not for Covid, it could have arrived in 2020. Now that’s a delay of two years and its effect is clearly seen in the buzz. Despite being a magnum opus made on a huge budget, no pre-release excitement was seen. Yes, Ranbir Kapoor and the promoted the film well in the last few days and were able to create some awareness.
As mentioned above, there was an underwhelming hype and Shamshera is feeling all the heat at the box office. As per the early estimates flowing in, this dacoit drama is aiming to earn 9-10.50 crores as day 1 collection. Earlier, the film was touted to surpass Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2‘s 14.11 crores and become the biggest Bollywood opener of 2022, but that’s not going to happen with too much online hate and average to disappointing word-of-mouth. We have seen films picking up during evening and night shows due to positive feedback, and here, the negativity has taken a toll.
As for now, Shamshera is competing with Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi in the opening day race. Alia’s film had made 10.50 crores on day 1 and Ranbir might just cross it or even stay below the figure depending upon the closing trade reports for the opening day.
