The film was announced a long time ago. Ever since the first look of Akshay was unveiled with that scruffy beard and scar on a face, there was a sort of hype to watch Akki’s never-seen-before avatar.
Things took a backseat when the pandemic came and all the buzz that was created got lost. Thankfully, the makers did a good job of staying relevant post-Covid.
Promotions have been good, especially the trailer looking completely massy and engaging. Further, B Praak’s Saare Bolo Bewafa gave a much needed musical boost.
Akshay Kumar has been carrying momentum with Sooryavanshi‘s success, and Bachchhan Paandey looked another addition to his consistent box office run.
Akshay Kumar has previously broken the myth that Bollywood films don’t do good on Holi. Yes, we’re talking about his Kesari which made over 20 crores on its opening day.
Then the second major hurdle is SS Rajamouli’s RRR arriving next week, which will take away a big chunk of screens.
Bachchhan Paandey is trapped in between The Kashmir Files and next week’s RRR. It’s just a window of seven days in which BP needs to perform to its full potential.
It looks like the Akshay Kumar starrer will cross the 100 crore mark but won’t go too far with a lifetime staying in 105-115 crores.
