Arjun Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz, Anil Kapoor and Athiya Shetty's Mubarakan is all set to hit the screen this Friday(July 28) and we are eager to see this seemingly hilarious movie. With a fantastic story line, some amazing promos and a decent buzz surrounding the film, we are sure Mubarakan will open on a decent note at the box office. But to be double sure, we called up trade expert - Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) to know more about this. While talking about the buzz and Anees Bazmee's style of comedy, Akshaye predicted that Mubarakan can easily cross the Rs 20 crore mark over the first weekend. Though a few would argue that this isn't a huge number, but considering the release size and a few other factors, this is a really good figure.
As Akshaye revealed to us exclusively, "I am rooting for Anees Bazmee. When it comes to his genre, he is a bloody good director. His craftsmanship will surely do wonders. Add to that Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty and the film looks fantastic. His genre of mass comedy is coming in after a long and the mass audience has been deprived of such comic elements and humour since a while now. This film will surely fill the demand supply gap and hence, it will do well." (ALSO READ - Mubarakan new trailer: Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor's terrific comic timing will give you laughing fits)
According to Akshaye, Mubarakan will have a wide release in more than 2000 screens. Adding to that the good pre-release buzz, Akshaye predicted that the film will have a decent first weekend, as he added, "It should open to Rs 5 - 7 crore on day one and over the weekend, it should make around Rs 18 - 20 crore. But after that, it all depends on the content of the film and the word of mouth publicity it will receive."
