Panga stars Kangana Ranaut in a lead role. She is playing a Kabbadi player who is torn between family responsibility and love for the sport.
2020 started on an average note for Bollywood as only 1 out of 6 movies managed to impress the audience. Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is the only hit film of the year. All eyes are now set on two biggies, Panga and Street Dancer slated for release on 24 Jan 2020.
In this article, we will discuss the box office prospects of Kangana Ranaut’s Panga. Panga is a sports drama film directed by Aswini Iyer Tiwari. Kangana is playing a Kabbadi player who is torn between family responsibility and love for sports. The film supports the concept of women empowerment.
Kangana is one of the finest actresses of Bollywood. She has already delivered powerful performances in films like Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Fashion, Queen etc. In Panga, Kangana is once again looking in top form. She is looking adorable as a mother and at the same time looking passionate as a Kabbadi player.
With Ashwini Iyer Tiwari helming, you can expect an entertaining film. She has given us gems like Bareilly Ki Barfi and Nil Bate Sannata. The trailer of Panga also promises a very good and meaningful film.
Now, the question is, will Panga work at the box office. Well, it all depends on the content and execution. The entertainment factor plays a very important role. The highly serious film is not everyone’s cup of tea. Deepika Padukone’s Chhapak has tanked at the box office, while Mardaani 2 worked. It’s all about understanding the audience mindset and taste.
Panga looks a promising film and it should set a decent start at the box office. I am expecting it to collect Rs 4-5 crore on day 1. Panga has to compete with Varun and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Street Dancer and Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji.
If the film manages to impress the audience then it will easily cross Rs 50 crore in its lifetime. The budget of the film is around Rs 40 crore including promotion and advertising cost. Wit the lifetime collection of Rs 50 crore, Panga would be a box office hit.
