Shamshera flop is an alarm bell for Bollywood movies in India

Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor’s film ‘Shamshera’, made under the banner of Yash Raj Films, is set to pile up at the box office. Released on August 22, the film has grossed just Rs 39 crore in five days. The film was also released in Pan India Tamil and Telugu. But when this is the condition of the Hindi version of the film, then one can guess what will happen in the south. So far, the film has earned Rs 21 lakh from the Tamil version and Rs 16 lakh from the Telugu version. Southern movies earn so much in the first hour of the first day at the Hindi box office. This failure of the film has had a very negative effect on the producers of South Cinema.

Ranbir Kapoor-Vaani Kapoor’s film ‘Shamshera’ has already racked up the box office in the first week.

The producers, who released the movie ‘Shamshera’ at the South box office dubbing it in Tamil and Telugu, have been very disappointed. It is said that the producers of South are now considering that Hindi films should not be dubbed. When Hindi movies hit theaters after being dubbed into Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, or Malayalam, the collections are not as expected.

Sometimes even embarrassing profit figures come to light, like those of Shamshera. In such a situation, even the cost of dubbing the film cannot be covered. In such a situation, a plan is being considered to show films in Hindi with subtitles in the southern language. With this, the cost of dubbing the film can be saved.

If this happens, then there is an alarm bell for the release pan India movies of Bollywood. Because you can make profit by releasing the movie in only one language, but you can’t make a collection record like ‘RRR’ and ‘KGF’. Releasing movies at many box offices in multiple languages ​​in India increases profits. For example, ‘RRR’ from the Telugu film industry earned 1.1 billion rupees worldwide. The film’s Indian box office gross was 700 crore, with the Hindi version earning more.

The Hindi version of this film had a business of 300 million rupees. At the same time, the Kannada film industry’s ‘KGF’ had earned 1.2 billion rupees worldwide. The film’s gross at the Indian box office was Rs 860 crore, in which the film earned around Rs 450 crore from the Hindi version.

The main reason for the tremendous earnings of South movies is their pan-India release in many languages. This is why Bollywood soon dared to release some Hindi movies in India but unfortunately no success has been achieved so far. In this list, Akshay Kumar’s film name ‘Emperor Prithviraj’ ranks high along with Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Shamshera’. Made on a budget of Rs 250 million, this Hindi film was also released in Tamil and Telugu. Its worldwide gross was Rs 85 crore and the Indian box office gross was Rs 66 crore.

In this, the film grossed 65 crores 89 lakhs from the Hindi version, 6 lakhs from the Tamil version and 5 lakhs from the Telugu version. From these figures, one can estimate what the condition of Bollywood movies is in the South. People there don’t like to watch Bollywood movies.

If we talk about the upcoming pan-Indian Bollywood movies, the names of Aamir Khan’s movie ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ and Ranbir Kapoor’s movie ‘Brahmastra’ are the most prominent. Both films are released in Tamil and Telugu. In this, Aamir’s ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ position seems weak. Made on a budget of Rs 180 million, this film is a Hindi remake of the Hollywood film Forrest Gump. This trailer has not had a very good response either. In such a situation, leave it in this south, there are doubts about the gains in the Hindi belt. In contrast, the movie ‘Brahmastra’ is seen in a strong position.

The story of this mythology based movie is inspired by divine powers and Tridev. The film is directed by Ayan Mukerji. In the South, the host of this film has become famous Bahubali filmmaker SS Rajamouli. His promotion is also taking place with a better strategy. In such a situation, it is said that this film will be the fate of Bollywood. His business at the South box office will decide the condition and direction of the Hindi film industry.
