Two new releases open this Weekend but this Weekend will be two days long as cinemas will remain closed on Friday.. IMGC releases Firangi which hit cinema on Thursday and Coco releases on Saturday under the banner of Eveready.. Firangi does have a known face in it’s cast i.e. Kapil Sharma but film has seen poor response from theatrical and content doesn’t appeal to Pakistan which means film will have a very low opening.. Last Kapil Sharma film released couple of years back on Eid ul Azha opposite Jawani Phir Nahi Ani and did manage some respectable numbers but Firangi might see very shocking numbers.. Tumhari Sulu two weeks back had collected 26.3lacs over the Weekend and Firangi might even fall short of that number and we forecast 17-18lacs for a two day Weekend..
Coco is animated feature and will have some appeal to families but film has just two days weekend and numbers won’t be any better but it might surpass occupancies of Firangi in some metro plexes.. Our prediction go as 10-12lacs two days Weekend of the film..
Among holdovers this Weekend it will be fight between Verna and Justice League for top finish but both will see falls! Verna had a very big fall last Weekend and this Weekend it will fall further as it will be a two day Weekend.. Last Weekend film was hit badly by protests but still film will fall as it’s two days weekend and we predict 25-30lacs Weekend for the film..
Punjab Nahi Jaungi will continue it’s historic run even in Week 14 at few multiplexes and will add couple of lacs more.
Among other holdover releases Thor and Golmaal Again will best ones with Golmaal Again might beat Thor this Weekend as Justice League has taken away most number of shows and footfalls from the film.. Ittefaq also has a show or two at few leading multiplexes but won’t be adding much.. Below is this Weekend’s predictions as per team Boxofficedetail..
1. Justice League.. –
2. Verna.. 25-30lacs (5.25cr)
3. Firangi.. 17-18 (25lacs)
4. Coco.. 10-12lcs (10-12lacs)
