The time has come. ‘Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbaai Dobaara’ is a little over a fortnight away from release and it won’t be wrong to say that the film would make a lot of noise on it’s arrival. In fact if the buzz for the film is just right currently, it is expected to increase manifold in days to come.
As a matter of fact, it has to!
There is a lot riding on the film. Inarguably, it is the biggest film ever to have come out of Ekta Kapoor’s stable. It is one of the biggest that Akshay Kumar has been a part of (and would be releasing in months to come). It is the first ever commercial film for Sonakshi Sinha where she actually is supposed to be doing a lot more than song-n-dance routine. It is also expected to be a game changer for ‘chocolate lover boy’ Imran Khan. And last, but perhaps most importantly, it is a film with which Milan Luthria could be one of the rare filmmakers to strike a hat trick (after ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ and ‘The Dirty Picture’).
On its release back in 2010, ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’ had managed a 20 crore opening weekend, 35 crore first week and 60 crore lifetime.
Rest assured, at a bare minimum, the sequel should manage at least 35 crore in its opening weekend, 60 crore in it’s opening week and over 100 crore lifetime. Anything more and that’s a bonus that all involved would be happy to count.
