Simran starring Kangana Ranaut in the lead with Hansal Mehta as director is all set to hit cinema screens this friday on September 15 and we are here to give you a break down on the film’s plot, the number of screens it will release on, the total budget of the film and the box office collection prediction that is being made by trusted industry trade analysts. Simran went on the floors last year with filming in the United States taking place from October 2017. Apart from Kangana Ranaut, the film stars Soham Shah, Esha Tewari Pande and Aneesha Joshi.
According to trade analysts, Simran is made on a budget of roughly 30 crores and will be releasing on screens in the range of 1200-1500, even though there has been no official confirmation from the makers of the film about the screen count. The film is loosely based on the life of Sandeep Kaur, who is an NRI and has served in the US prison after being convicted of thefts from various shops and malls. Simran, the movie takes us on the journey of its lead character who is a gujarati housekeeper in America but has sky-high ambitions which eventually lead her into the world of crime. It has been described as a fun and racy film by its makers.
The box office collection prediction for Simran on its opening day is around 2-3 crores while the first weekend prediction is in the range of 8-10 crore. Talking about the lifetime box office prediction, taking all of Kangana’s previous releases into account, Simran is expected to eventually reach the finish line with 22-25 crores in its account. Some might call this prediction conservative but post Queen, which released in 2014, Kangana Ranaut films like Revolver Rani, Katti Batti and Rangoon have failed at the box office consistently, with the exception of Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Let’s hope Kangana Ranaut manages to hit the jackpot with Simran, which will be at a theater near you from September 15.
