Sooryavanshi Is The Biggest  Bollywood Blockbuster Since The Pandemic



Akshay Kumar-sooryavanshi

The  last time we witnessed such a stampede  at the  boxoffice it was  for  Tanhaji  The Unsung Warrior  , and that  was in January 2020.

Now Sooryavanshi is  the first certifiable blockbuster since Tanhaji  .During the  first four days  of its release  it has collected approximately  Rs 85 crores. By the  end  of  the  week  it is expected  to cross the 100-crore mark.

Says Suman Sinha, a leading exhibitor of  Patna,  “So far  all shows have been full in my theatre. Hats off to Mr Rohit Shetty who was  always  confident of his product. Very  few  producer-directors would have  the guts  to hold  a release  for  20 months.”

Says Mumbai’s  leading  film  exhibitor Akshaye  Rathi, “The  entire entertainment industry and  the Sooryavanshi  team  and all of exhibitors associated  with Sooryavanshi  are  delighted  by  the success. Not  only  has it brought the audiences back into cinemas, Sooryavanshi has also given them a reason to smile after  one-and-a-half years  of suffering and misery because of the pandemic. It has given the audience a reason to cheer as  a community. That’s the biggest victory of  Sooryavanshi.”

 Rathi feels   the success  of Sooryavanshi would have far-reaching  repercussions.  “ Its success will  impact not only those associated with this film but also all those associated with forthcoming films. Now that the ice has broken and  the habit of seeing films in theatres  has been revived  all  the  forthcoming  films like Satyamev Jayate 2, Jersey, Bunty Aur Babli 2 and Antim will benefit.”
