Shamshera, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor is the widest Bollywood release ever at the box office.
2nd Wednesday Box Office – Thor Love And Thunder Is Healthy, Khuda Haafiz 2 Holds At The Lower Level
Shamshera features Ranbir Kapoor as a dacoit who must protect his tribe the evil Daroga Shuddh Singh, played by Sanjay Dutt and fulfill his father's legacy. The trailer, promo and songs have received a good response. Shamshera is the first film of Ranbir Kapoor after the blockbuster, Sanju, and was expected to end the dry run of the box office. The advance collection was good but the opening as per trade report has not been up to the mark as the action drama kicked-off somewhere between 15-20% occupancy in the morning shows across the country. The reviews have neither been encouraging which limited its growth towards the evening and night shows.
Unfortunately, the comeback film of Ranbir Kapoor could manage to collect a business of around Rs 11 crore from 4350 screens where trade was expecting much above higher figure since the budget is Rs 150 crore, including the actor's salary and production values.
With this opening, Shamshera will be the third best-opening film of the 2022 so far in Bollywood after Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (Rs 14.11 crores) and Bachchhan Paandey (13.25 crores). The action drama will be the 6th highest opening film of Ranbir Kapoor after Tamasha (10.94 crores). Shamshera is releasing in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu on 22nd July 2022
