Shehzada Day 2 Box Office: Kartik Aaryan's film sees 15 percent growth after low opening; Adds Rs 6.50 crores
Shehzada starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, is observing a discouraging box office trajectory.
Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon led Shehzada, directed by Rohit Dhawan, had yet another slow day at the box office. The film failed to show much growth on Saturday, something that was very important for the prospects of the film. The national chains haven't grown much and the single screens too have underperformed, as a result of which the film's second day is expected to be around Rs 6.50 crores nett. The weekend for the film is heading towards a sub-20 crores nett in India and it is something no one in the trade would have expected out of it.
Shehzada Doesn't Benefit Much From Incentives Given To The Audiences
Shehzada ideally had to see more growth in its collections, considering the boost that it would get on account of Mahashivratri. But that was not to be. The Buy One Get One Free offer was extended for Saturday but that didn't do much good for the prospects of the film. It surely was a gutsy step by the producers to have attempted something of this sort and get audiences to visit theatres. Alas, the conversions didn't increase to the extent that they should have, and it is reflecting on the numbers. It is to be seen how the film performs after the weekend, since it won't even have the Buy One Get One incentive that it is having over the weekend.
Shehzada Is The Official Remake Of Telugu Blockbuster Ala Vaikuthapurramaloo
Shehzada is the official remake of Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde's blockbuster film Ala Vailkunthapurramaloo. The film release coincided with the Sankranthi festival and had a semi-clash with Mahesh Babu's film Sarileru Neekevvaru, which released a day earlier. The Allu Arjun starrer emerged the clear winner while the Mahesh Babu film too was able to secure a hit verdict. Shehzada was confirmed in 2021 and the film was extensively shot through 2022, in a controlled environment.
The two day total of Shehzada stands at Rs 12.25 crores nett in India. Internationally, the two day sum of the film is less than 500k dollars. All this doesn't help much for the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 actor, who had high hopes pinned on the film and was also a first time co-producer.
