Speculation is at an all-time high on the kind of initial Salman Khan’s Bodyguard will take. Even after Dabangg, there was scepticism in the trade about the opening of Ready last weekend but when the opening weekend’s collections of ‘Ready’ were phenomenal (barely 20% less than those of ‘Dabangg’ on the first three days , the trade realised that it doesn’t mean much to underestimate the force that Salman seems to have become. What’s more, ‘Ready’ had opened in a non-festive week, unlike ‘Dabangg’ which was released on the occasion of Eid. Now that ‘Bodyguard’ is due to hit the screens on Eid (31st August) this year, the trade is supremely confident, its opening weekend’s collections would be something to look forward to. In other words, one can safely expect ‘Bodyguard’ to get the best terms from exhibitors across the country, when it is released.
