Bollywood newbies Sadia and Aadil Khan’s’s film Shikara is released in theatres on February 7th. Sadia, Aadil Khan and their fans are eagerly awaiting the release of their favorite’s much hyped historical film Shikara. Shikara movie is one of the most awaited movies of 2020 thanks to the amazing combination of Aadil and Sadia. Shikara is a thrilling narrative of the heartwrenching exodus of Kashmiri Pandits.
However, bad news awaits the makers of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s much hyped Hindi historical drama movie “Shikara” as Tamilrockers, a leading torrent site for movies download has already leaked the full movie online.
Will Shikara’s Tamilrockers Movie Download Release Affect Box Office Collections?
Shikara’s budget for production is around INR 30 Crores which is one of the decent budgets for Bollywood this year. Considering the amount of investment at stake, the early pirated release of Shikara movie online for free download, is likely to dent its earnings.
As emphasized earlier, modern day movies depend a lot on opening week collections as a significant source of return on investment. With the advent of Tamilrockers, Tamilgun, Telegram and other online movie streaming sites, film makers face a daunting task of dealing with this situation.
However, Shikara is hyped well enough and the cast of Aadil, Sadia and other stars will definitely attract their fan base to the theaters to watch the movie. Also, Shikara promises to be an impactful historical treat for the amount of money invested in production and watching it on a mere 480P or 720P print will not do justice for the visuals at stake, we believe.
On the other hand, first hand reactions of Shikara are very promising and we will wait for more reviews and reports in the coming days. However, the release of Shikara on Tamilrockers is likely to have a detrimental effect on the movies success in the long run.
Shikara Movie Hit or Flop? First Day Collection
First day collection for Shikara is predicted to be INR 3 to 4 crores in all India box offices. The first day overseas collection is pegged at INR 0.3 crores in all languages.
Shikara has opened to average reviews. Also, the weekend is likely to boost up its occupancy in the first week.
Total Worldwide Gross: 55cr(expected)
The Box office collection shows it has a strong opening and since being a long weekend we expect it to hold the Box Office for weekend. The word of mouth about the movie might help in long run and let’s hope it does well at Box Office. We will update the Box Office collections as soon as we get more updates.
