Panipat Box Office Prediction: Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt starrer Panipat is expected to take an average opening, may turn out a career defying film for Arjun Kapoor.
Known for period drama films like Jodha Akbar and Lagaan, director Ashutosh Gowariker now brings Panipat. The epic war drama film is based on the Third Battle Of Panipat. It stars Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles.
Gowariker has worked with big names like Aamir Khan, SRK and Hrithik Roshan but for a mega project like Panipat, he has opted for Arjun Kapoor. This is where the problem lies. The project like Panipat needs a big star. The trailer of the film has received mixed reviews. In fact, on social media, the netizens are still trolling the film’s trailer and Arjun Kapoor’s casting.
Panipat Opening Day (1st Day) Box Office Collection Prediction
Overall, there is negativity around the film, which will definitely affect its opening at the box office. Considering the hype and buzz, I am expecting Panipat to collect around Rs 7 crore on its opening day.
Panipat Lifetime Box Office Collection Prediction
Ashutosh Gowariker is a master filmmaker. He just needs one box office hit to be back on track. Panipat could be that film. The trailer may be average but we can’t judge the book by its cover. If Ashutosh delivers something close to his best films like Lagaan and Jodha Akbar then we will see big jumps in numbers from day 2.
Panipat is a big-budget film and needs to earn big. The film is made in a budget of around Rs 90 crore. It should cross Rs 120 crore mark to be declared a hit. To achieve this number, Panipat needs to be an exceptional film as the big names are not there.
If accepted by the audience, Panipat has a chance to cross Rs 100 crore mark. However, anything above it would be a daunting task. As per my prediction, the lifetime collection of Panipat would be around 75 crores.
