After giving two back to back disappointments on Eid, Salman Khan is leaving no stone unturned to make sure his upcoming biggie Bharat is a Box Office blockbuster.
The Ali Abbas Zafar film starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Disha Patani in lead has everything going on its favour. The promos have clicked with the audience and the music is also doing well. With the film set to be an Eid release, one expects nothing but a bumper opening from the film.
However, there’s one factor which can affect the collections of Bharat and that too in a big way and it’s the first World Cup match of India. June 5 happens to be the release date of Bharat and it’s also the date when India will play its first World Cup match against South Africa. The craze for both the events is unprecedented and it’s going to be a clash of its own kind.
But producer Atul Agnihotri is unfazed by this clash and thinks that Bharat will stay unharmed at the Box Office. During a recent interview with Bollywood Life, when Atul was asked about the clash between Bharat and Ind vs SAF World Cup match, he said, “Nowadays, people have access to new information on the phone every 5 minutes. I am also a cricket fan but a movie buff is a movie buff. We have an intended Eid release and we are catering to the audience who look forward to that. Both Cricket and Bollywood are religion in India, so it will be fine. If Bharat works as per what we have thought, it will definitely pass every test.”
Well, we love the confidence of Atul and hope the film does extremely well at the Box Office.
