Akshay Kumar's recent release Rowdy Rathore has turned out to be one of the biggest money spinners of the year 2012. Besides good weekend collection, the action thriller movie has done very well at the Box Office in the weekdays too. But now, the trade analysts feel that another most anticipated movie Shanghai, which is releasing today, might slow down the pace of the film at the collection centres.
Shanghai is a political thriller movie, which has been directed by Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! fame Dibakar Banerjee. The film features popular stars like Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin in the leads. It has been in news ever since it hit the floor and that too for all good reason.
The makers of Shanghai have had extensive promotional activities for the film. Its promo trailers and posters have created a lot of curiosity among the movie buffs. Moreover, the music of the film, which has been composed by Vishal-Shekhar, has already become very popular. Especially, the song 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' has become the favourite of the music lovers.
However, previous week's release Rowdy Rathore has already collected more than Rs 80 crore nett at the Box Office in India. It is all set to score century this weekend. But now, Akshay-Sonakshi starrer is facing a big threat from Shanghai, which has all the potential to stop its roaring. It should be seen whether Emraan-Abhay starrer will really slow the pace of Rowdy Rathore at the Box Office.
