In less than 24 hours from now, the wait will be over. Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the biggest film of the year so far, will be seeing the widest release across the country, and in the process will most definitely take the biggest start in theaters. In fact, its direct competition would be with Bahubali, as, in Hindi, there hasn’t been anything that has even come close to a record opening. ABCD 2 had the highest opening day with 14 crore and that will be more than just doubled by the Kabir Khan directed film.

Salman Khan‘s record for the highest opening day is 33 crore, which was for Ek Tha Tiger. On the other hand, the opening of his last release, Kick, was 26.5 crore. Now, for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, at least 30 crore is pretty much on the cards. Moreover, a 100 crore weekend is pretty much for the taking. As for more moolah coming in, it would all boil down to the content, though buzz is that this Eros production is a true emotional entertainer that will go far beyond instant-coffee affairs that Salman Khan films usually turn out to be.

So far, Salman Khan has recorded seven straight successes in a row (Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Dabangg 2, Jai Ho, Kick) and now with Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he is set to add on his eighth.

Kabir Khan has a clean record so far with last couple of his films being good money spinners (Ek Tha Tiger – 199 crore, New York – 45 crore). With Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he should be comfortably topping his highest score. As for Eros, they are on a winning spree after Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Badlapur and NH10. They should make it four in a row now with Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

All in all, a very hearty weekend ahead for the industry.
