Rajinikanth’s upcoming film, Jailer, has shattered advance booking records, selling over 612,000 tickets on BookMyShow as of Monday, August 8. This is more than any other film releasing in the upcoming week, including Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel-starrer Gadar 2, which has sold around 83,300 tickets.
The buzz around Jailer has been building since the release of its trailer earlier this month. The film, directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, stars Rajinikanth in the lead role, along with Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Mohanlal, Jackie Shroff, Shivarajkumar, Sunil Varma, Yogi Babu, and Vasanth Ravi.
Rajinikanth’s upcoming film, Jailer, is expected to be a major box office success, and it is already breaking records in the US. As of Monday, August 8, the film had sold over $664,000 worth of premiere advance tickets, making it director Nelson Dilipkumar’s highest-grossing premiere in the US. This figure significantly surpasses the director’s previous project Beast, which generated around $658,000 in ticket sales.
The anticipation for Jailer is high, given the star power of Rajinikanth and the positive buzz surrounding the film. The film is scheduled to release on August 10 in the US, and it is expected to be a major draw for Tamil movie fans in the country.
The strong advance booking for Jailer is a good sign for the film’s box office prospects. It suggests that there is a lot of demand for the film, and it is likely to perform well when it releases in theaters. Jailer could potentially become one of the biggest box office hits of Rajinikanth’s career.
Trade analyst Sumit Kadel has predicted that Gadar 2 will likely make around Rs 30-35 crore on its opening day and around Rs 120-130 crore in terms of net domestic box office. Kadel believes that Gadar 2 will be a blockbuster and that Sunny Deol will “show the new generation his PEAK STARDOM of the 90s again in 2023”.
Gadar 2 is the sequel to the 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. The film stars Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel in the lead roles, and it is set against the backdrop of the 1947 India-Pakistan partition. The film has been directed by Anil Sharma, who also directed the first film.
