Advance booking: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Sarfira’ flops, Kamal Haasan’s ‘Indian 2’ prepares for record opening


While Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ has collected a net of Rs 536.75 crore in 14 days at the Indian box office, two more new films are releasing on Friday. On July 12, on one hand, Akshay Kumar and Radhika Madan’s ‘Sarfira’ will be released, while on the other hand, Kamal Haasan’s ‘Indian 2’ is also coming to rock the screen. This film of Kamal Haasan is being released pan India and in Hindi it has been named ‘Hindustani 2’. Advance booking of both the films is going on before the release. But the figures that have come out show that ‘Sarfira’ is in a bad condition. ‘Sarfira’, directed by National Award winning Sudha Kongara, is the Hindi remake of South superstar Surya’s ‘Soorarai Pottru’. Surya himself is also producing this film. But looking at the condition of advance booking, it seems that Akshay Kumar’s magic is going to be less this time. Anyway, Akshay Kumar’s condition at the box office has been bad for the last few years. Apart from his/her ‘OMG 2’, all the other 7 films released in theaters after 2021 have flopped badly.

Advance booking of ‘Sarfira’ is only 24 lakhs

According to the report of sacnilk, till 11 am on Thursday, only 12102 tickets have been booked in advance for ‘Sarfira’. With this, the film has earned only Rs 24.04 lakh so far. However, the whole day of Thursday is still left for advance booking. But there is no magical change in these figures. Therefore, this film is now going to be released completely on the basis of on-spot booking and the love of the audience.

What is the story of ‘Sarfira’, ‘Soorarai Pottru’ is available on OTT

‘Sarfira’ is an inspirational biopic. It is the story of a start-up and an aviation company that wanted to provide cheap air travel to the common man. This is the story of Veer Jagannath Mhatre, who overcame all obstacles to realize his/her dream and founded Deccan Airlines. One problem with the slow advance booking of Akshay’s film is that Surya’s ‘Soorarai Pottru’, released in 2020, is already available in Hindi version on OTT as ‘Udaan’. In such a situation, the whole responsibility rests on the audience. If ‘Sarfira’ is able to woo them, then it can take off at the box office by the weekend.

Strong advance booking for ‘Indian 2’, tension for Kalki 2898 AD increased

Akshay’s ‘Sarfira’ may also face the same fate as the film Sandwich. This is because while ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ is already doing well in theatres, Kamal Haasan’s ‘Indian 2’ is also releasing on Friday. The audience has been waiting for this film for 28 years. ‘Indian 2’ is also doing better in advance booking. Till 11 am on Thursday, 302893 lakh tickets have been booked and it has earned a business of Rs 5.40 crore.

Box Office: ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ became the seventh most powerful film in the history of top films, it remained amazing even after declining on the 14th day

‘Kalki 2898 AD’s earnings are continuously decreasing

However, Kamal Haasan’s ‘Indian 2’ is still not very popular among Hindi audiences. So this is a relief for Akshay’s film. But problems have increased for ‘Kalki 2898 AD’. Prabhas’ film is already earning less on working days since Sunday. On Wednesday, it earned 7.50 crores in the country. So ‘Indian 2’ has the potential to cause losses in South Indian states.
