The deadly combination of Vidya Balan and Sujoy Ghosh is back with Kahaani 2. If you remember, Kahaani was one of the best movies of 2012 and soon after its release people had started calling Vidya the lady Khan of Bollywood. Expectations from this powerhouse actress is equally high this time too.
The trailer of Kahaani 2 was successful in creating a curiosity among the audiences. And if the movie is worth the hype then it might collect around Rs 6 Crores on its opening day and some trade experts even believe that Kahaani 2 has the potential to earn around Rs 30 Crores in its first weekend. Read more about it below.
Positive Buzz Around The Movie
Talking about the Vidya Balan starrer, Trade analyst Amul revealed to Bollywood Life, "The buzz around Kahaani 2 - Durga Rani Singh is good. It can definitely replicate the success of its prequel. Kahaani was one of those films, which was a runaway success.''
Kahaani 2 Is Still A Relevant Film
''There was also a great word of mouth publicity that the film enjoyed. The unusual ending, the twists and turns were things that people spoke about. Kahaani 2 is also still a relevant film coz its prequel didn't come out too long ago.''
Best Thing Is Sujoy Didn't Direct Any Film Post Kahaani
''Maybe that was the issue with some recent films like Rock On 2 and Tum Bin 2, which had 8 and 16 years of gap respectively with its prequel. So Kahaani 2 is more relevant in today's day and age. The best thing is that Sujoy (Ghosh) has not directed any film since Kahaani, so he is still fresh and in the zone. So lot of things have ticked boxes for this movie."
"I expect Kahaani 2 to open decently. It can collect in the range of Rs 6-8 crore on day one, which is really good. The lifetime depends on the content of the film and we will get a clearer picture of the weekend collections near to the release day.''
Amul Vikas Mohan further added, ''From Rs 8 Crores on day one, Kahaani 2 can collect anywhere in between Rs 9-9.50 Crores on day 2 and Rs 10 Crores on day 3. So you are looking at just a little under Rs 30 Crores over the first weekend, which is a great number for such a film."
