Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim‘s Secret Superstar is all set to hit the screens this Thursday (October 19), but even before it releases, there is a huge buzz and positivity surrounding the movie. Everyone is quite excited about Secret Superstar, especially after several celebrities including Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh gushed about it post a special screening organised for them. With such a fantastic buzz, we wonder how will the movie open at the box office? We called up trade expert, Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distirbutor), and he was quite excited about the film’s prospects.
While predicting the opening day collections for Aamir and Zaira’s Secret Superstar, Akshaye revealed to us exclusively, “It’s an exciting scenario this Diwali. The buzz around Secret Superstar is really high and it has peaked at the right time. The excitement for the film is higher in the Urban and multiplex audience. Secret Superstar, on day one (October 19, Thursday), which also is the day for Laxmi Pujan, should collect Rs 7 – 8 crore at the box office. On the second day (October 20, Friday), which is again a holiday, I expect the film to see a huge jump, maybe even double of the day one collections. It’s surely going to be a Happy Diwali for the trade, the makers as well as the audience.” (ALSO READ – Secret Superstar celeb review: Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim’s film leaves Rajkummar Rao, Nawazuddin Siddiqui impressed – read tweets)
Considering that the film is being released in 1500 – 1800 screens, this will be a fantastic start for Secret Superstar. And with the fact that the film has been made on a limited budget of Rs 15 – 20 crore, we are sure it will be profitable at the box office before the first weekend itself.
