Box office records are in threat for 83 movie based on record breaking 1983’s Worldcup victory featuring Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev.
Spiderman: No Way Home has already created buzz in the fans in very first few days of release. From advance booking to the unexpected hype Spiderman: NWH has become a disaster for most awaited Bollywood movie 83.
All through the last few weeks, Reliance Entertainment was confident that 83’ would get better showcasing than Sooryavanshi, and didn’t anticipate an out of the book competitor in the form of Spiderman. The distributor of Spiderman, Sony Pictures, too are making a similar demand of at-least one show in the second week at single screens as they are confident of their film putting up big numbers in the second week too.
By asking them to let go of Spiderman distributers of 83 has also demanded prime time showcasing across all multiplexes in India. But as multiplexes are being shut for last 2 years are not willing to cut short the run of NWH. While on the other Reliance is also adamant on not letting the single screen owners play Jersey on more than one show from December 31 onwards. They believe their film is meant for the long run and having held back on the release of 2 years, they deserve this preferential treatment.
