Rajkumar Rao's 'Srikant' has completed its two-week journey at the box office. Due to its interesting story and strong acting, this film has made a net collection of Rs 31.45 crore in two weeks. In a way, this is the success of this film, because for the last two months every film was failing badly in the theatres. Moreover, 'Srikant' has also beaten the Hollywood film 'Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes', which earned Rs 25.75 crore in two weeks. Whereas in the initial days its earnings were much more than this. Now on Friday i.e. 24 May, Manoj Bajpayee's crime-drama film 'Bhaiya Ji' is releasing. There is a lot of noise in the market about this film. In such a situation, is 'Srikant' going to suffer more losses? Let's understand. Directed by Tushar Hiranandani, 'Srikant' is a biopic of visually impaired businessman Shrikant Bole. Even before the release of the film, it was expected that it would make its place on the basis of word of mouth. This happened. The film was praised and was a minor hit at the box office. Made on a budget of Rs 40 crore, 'Srikanth' has collected a net of Rs 31.45 crore in 14 days. Now if the film maintains its strong hold for another week, then by its fourth weekend it will cross its cost and become profitable and will prove to be a hit.

'Srikanth' earned Rs 1.40 crore on Thursday, the 14th day

According to the report of sacnilk, 'Srikanth' has done a business of Rs 1.40 crore on the 14th day i.e. Thursday. The good thing is that on its last weekend i.e. Sunday, this film did a business of Rs 4 crore. After this, from Monday to Thursday, the film kept its hold strong and earned more than Rs 1 crore every day. The earnings will increase again on the third weekend. But at the same time, 'Bhaiya Ji' releasing on Friday can raise concerns about Rajkumar Rao's film. Especially when it is two weeks old.

'Bhaiya Ji' actor Manoj Bajpayee said that it is better for people to go and watch good movies instead of big movies.

If the audience likes it then 'Bhaiya Ji' can become a superhit.

Manoj Bajpayee has returned to the crime-drama genre after a long time. The audience has liked his style and desiness in the trailer of 'Bhaiya Ji'. Seeing this reminds us of 'Satya' and 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. Obviously, this film directed by Apoorv Singh Karki will get a good response in the first weekend. 'Bhaiya Ji' is a masala film. The audience has been waiting for a good film of this genre for a long time. In such a situation, if this film makes the audience happy, then the earning figures can be surprising.

'Bhaiya Ji' can earn 2-4 crores on the first day

It is estimated that Manoj Bajpayee's film 'Bhaiya Ji' will earn 2-4 crores at the box office on its first day on Friday, May 24. This is a crime-drama film. It has action. It has a desi feeling. At first glance, it has all the elements that can make it a superhit. But it is important that the film is good and the audience likes it. It is also worth understanding that after the success of 'Shaitan', Bollywood has not tasted great success. Meanwhile, films like 'Crew', 'Article 370' and 'Swatantra Veer Savarkar' also came, which proved to be hits even with low earnings due to their low budget. But they could not reap strong earnings.
