Until about a week ago, there were massive expectations on the openings of the Rebel Star Saaho. A sample would be like this – a 30 Cr Nett plus opening day in Hindi, beating Baahubali 2 in Telugu and getting similar numbers in Tamil. And finally, comfortably crossing 2 Million for premieres, in the US. Now, a ground reality has been hit, and a more reasonable expectation is set.
The Telugu states are looking at opening on par with Baahubali 2 with a few areas all set to cross. The special shows are there; a wide release is present along with the required hires. The top 2 opening day is assured. Whether Saaho will cross Baahubali 2 or not will be purely dependent on the talk. The current top 3 openers are listed below.
1. Baahubali 2 (42.47 Cr)
2. Agnyaathavaasi (26.97 Cr)
3. Aravindha Sametha (26.31 Cr)
In the Hindi market, a 20 Cr opening is on the cards. It will be an incredible achievement for Prabhas starrer, which is riding on his name alone in Bollywood. If word of mouth turns out favourable, expect the number to get even higher.
The Tamil and Malayalam versions are extremely poor as of now. A massive pick up is needed to post a decent end of the day total.
The all India non-Baahubali 2 Nett Gross looks a safe bet from Telugu and Hindi numbers alone. Its final range will be dependent on the Hindi day 1 number. Below are the current top 5 domestic toppers, including all languages.
1. Baahubali 2 (124 Cr Nett)
2. 2.0 (59 Cr Nett)
3. Avengers: Endgame (53.10 Cr)
4. Thugs Of Hindostan (52.25 Cr Nett)
5. Kabali (47.4 Cr Nett)
In the US, the premiere numbers are likely to touch the million mark or fall a bit short. It is the situation as of now.
