Street Dancer 3D, starring Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi, is all set to clash with Kangana Ranaut’s Panga this Friday ahead of the Republic Day. The two films can, however, face competition from Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior, which is still going strong after two weeks at the ticket windows.
Film trade feels Street Dancer 3D, which releases on around 3000 screens, will dominate the ticket counters on day 1 and should open at around Rs 15 crore. Predicting a good opening for the Remo D’Souza directorial, film trade analyst Girish Johar told Hindustan Times, “Both the films look good. The audience loved the trailer and songs of Street Dancer 3D trailer. It is a mass entertainer and specifically targets the youth. It is a typical masala popcorn film loved by the moviegoers and has a stylish feel to it.”
Film exhibitor Akshay Rathi is confident Street Dancer 3D will not collect less than Rs 15-16 crore. He told HT, “Atleast when it comes to opening, Street Dancer 3D will have a big release for practical purposes. It is a fantastic film. It could not be a Disney property like ABCD and ABCD 2 but it is from the same world. The two films were big. It is popular among the youth and in India. All Varun, Shraddha, Nora and Prabhudeva are popular stars.”
