2019 has met with a very dull start at the boxoffice for Hindi films. It appears that this dry spell will be hard to fought as there will not be any Khan starrer releasing this year.
Although the younger generation of Bollywood has managed to make their mark in their domestic market however Pakistan is still dominated by the fandom of the Khans. Khans have always managed to pull huge boxoffice initials. Salman Khan’s Sultan still holds all the opening boxoffice records in Pakistan whereas SRK has the most number of 2+cr opening days.
This year, only one Khan film is slated for release i.e. Salman Khan’s Bharat. Whereas Bharat has very slim chances to release in Pakistan owing to it’s title and content. Even if this film somehow manages to release then this too will be a Week late release as Indian films are not allowed to release on Eid in Pakistan.
Now the question that arises is, which film will be able to rake in the highest initials this year in Pakistan among Hindi films?
As per buzz, it is likely to be Yash Raj Film, Tigers vs Hrithik. Film is slated for release on 2nd October. Tiger Sheroff has been unstoppable in the genre of action in Pakistan. The film is said to be a high octane action film. Tiger’s Last film Baaghi 2 made 2cr on its opening day.
We will also have Hrithik Roshan with him this time so this will be a fitting and effective combination which will take a massive start at the boxoffice. We will not be surprised if this film opens above 3cr.
The only film this year which has chances of beating this film will be Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra. Ranbir saw remarkable numbers last year with Sanju and this film is an all out action film so will rake in stupendous initials. There are speculations that Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 will hit in December and if that is true then Salman Khan will easily take the biggest initials of 2019 for Hindi films.
