Finally, the most awaited Brahmastra movie is here. The film stars Bollywood power couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead. The advance booking figure for the film is currently soaring high. However, Ranbir Kapoor confesses that he doesn’t take the numbers seriously. He also advises them to not take them seriously and asks them to wait till Friday
Trade analysts are predicting the film will break pandemic-era records of openings for Hindi films. However, the film’s lead actor Ranbir Kapoor isn’t too enthused by the solid advance booking trends. In a recent interaction, he asked everyone not to take these figures seriously.
During the meet, Ranbir was asked how he felt seeing the good advance booking numbers for the film and predictions that it would turn the fortunes of the industry. Ranbir replied, “We cannot take these figures and all seriously because till the audience doesn’t see the film, the game doesn’t begin. The film is made for the audience. I think on Friday, we will get to know where we are, Kitne paani ke Andar Hain (how well we will fare). But the feeling is, of course, positive. We have come as Shah Rukh Khan from Dilwale Le Jaayenge, asking you, ‘come watch our movie!’ That’s all.”
Till Wednesday night, Brahmastra had seen advance bookings of ₹23 crores across India in all languages for its first weekend. This includes tickets worth ₹11 crores sold for the opening day alone. The bulk of the advance bookings are for the Hindi version, but the Telugu version has also contributed around ₹1 crore to the figures. These are the best advance booking figures for any Bollywood film in the pandemic era.
