Ranbir is fighting for the fifth time
Significantly, this will be the fifth time in Ranbir Kapoor’s career that he will somehow manage to reach double figures. Before Shamshera’s 10.3 crores, Tamasha had 10.9 crores, Roy 10.4 crores, Rockstar 10.6 crores and Politics 10.5 crores. Rockstar and Tamasha were box office flops while Roy and Politics were semi-hits. But the budget of none of these films was even close to Shamshera.
the largest edition
Shamshera is the biggest film to hit theaters since the Corona period. Shamshera has released in 5,500 screens worldwide, including 4,350 screens in India and 1,200 screens overseas. Therefore, it was believed that according to the craze of Ranbir Kapoor among the audience, Shamshera will create opening records at the box office.
Tellingly, Shamshera’s budget is huge. It was made on a whopping budget of 150 crores. The film was directed by Karan Malhotra, who was trusted by Yash Raj Films owner and producer Aditya Chopra. Karan Malhotra had earlier given a super hit film like Agneepath to Dharma Productions and it was believed that he will repeat the story with Yash Raj Films.
Big loss for Yash Raj Films
The opening of Shamshera is very short and word of mouth makes the movie even worse. According to this, the film will be able to recover its budget at the box office. So Shamshera will be the third big flop of this year for Yash Raj Films. Earlier, Yash Raj Films’ Rs 90 crore Ranveer Singh starrer Jayeshbhai Jordaar earned Rs 17.5 crore, while Samrat Prithviraj’s Rs 180 crore earned Rs 66 crore. Both the films flopped badly and now no one can stop Shamshera from joining this list. Together these three films will cause a loss of around 250 crores to Yash Raj Films.
Equal to the previous film?
Karan Malhotra’s previous film Agneepath earned 118 crores at the box office. It is second in the list of highest grossing films of Sanjay Dutt’s career. On the other hand, the highest grossing films of Ranbir Kapoor’s career are Sanju with 342 crores and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with 188 crores. It remains to be seen whether Shamshera will become his third highest grosser or not.
