Two major personal records in just 10 months – that’s how Karan Johar and his Dharma Productions earned it at the box office, even in the post-pandemic era. Sooryavanshi was the first to bring people back to the theater, but now it’s Brahmastra’s turn to revive the theater business in a big way.
As the second wave of the pandemic drew to a close, Akshay Kumar star Sooryavanshi, directed by Rohit Shetty, not only made headlines but came close to entering the pandemic. 200 million rupees club. The film was a huge success at the box office, and as one of his producers, the Dharma Productions brand name was highly prized and kept stocks high. After his 10 months with an odd number of 30 high-profile films coming out and the theater business seemingly down and down, it is Brahmastra who has given everything a big boost.
The film significantly outperformed Sooryavanshi’s weekend business, and in the process turned out to be the first ever film. 100 million rupees club opener Karan Johar and his Daruma Productions. The film came out at a time when there was a great deal of uncertainty about how audiences would react to the film, but to be fair, the situation changed 8-10 days before pre-orders got a big reaction. It started to improve. There were already signs that the movie was going to open well, but after that maintenance would be key.
Well, it’s actually happening across the teams involved brahmastra, I took a breather. Dharma Productions’ biggest gross ever 100 million rupees club is simba [240.31 crores] And in today’s conditions, Brahmastra should quite comfortably surpass this total and be right at the top.
