Bollywood masala film titled Bachchan Paandey which was released last week on Friday 18 March 2022, is right now struggling at box office to gross satisfactory earnings and if the struggle continued like this for this Farhad Samji directorial then very soon it might get taken off screens across India. Even die hard Akki fans have absolutely failed to save this film from getting flopped and The Kashmir Files juggernaut completely demolished it at box office India.
Bachchan Paandey might also lose more then 50% of its screens coming Friday as S.S. Rajamouli’s highly anticipated film RRR is releasing and definitely most of the single screen as well as PVR owners might prefer to replace Bachchan Paandey’s shows with RRR shows on coming Friday. Bachchan Paandey current screen count is 2700 and its highly expected that after RRR’s release the screen count of Bachchan Paandey will get decreased to around 1000 screens – 1500 screens only.
Bachchan Paandey’s lifetime earnings are expected to be somewhere around ₹ 55 crores – ₹ 60 crores at box office India and its a big shame as a hefty amount of ₹ 150 crores have been spent on the making of this film. Although there are no worries for producer Sajid Nadiadwala as he might smoothly recover his money because its satellite rights are already being sold for around ₹ 50 crores and recently makers re-negotiated the OTT release deal with Amazon Prime for a 4-week theatrical window which was 6 weeks initially for a whopping amount of ₹ 80 crores.
Bachchan Paandey’s todays box office biz was very disappointing as people are no more showing any interest in watching this film in theatres. At first we thought that the reason behind this poor public response is due to the Summer heat in North India but even during the evening and night shows the theatre halls remained mostly empty and the response was quite thanda.
Bachchan Paandey Sixth Day Collection in India is ₹ 1.90 crores (approximately)
