It is rare that a content driven film gets a big Diwali release date slot as Diwali is mostly assigned for big films. Well, Secret Superstar is an Aamir Khan’s production film so even theater owners are pretty confident that this content driven movie will find takers in strong numbers this Diwali.
Secret Superstar is a motivational story of an aspiring 14 year old which is played by Zaira Wasim. Aamir Khan has a small role in the movie but even that will be enough for his fans to make a healthy crowd in theaters. Aamir is one of the best minds in Bollywood and he understands the audience taste better than most of us.
Secret Superstar will be releasing in around 2200-2500 screens. The trailer of the movie has been received very well and its songs are rich in quality and are boasting of the positive theme of the film. Aamir has constantly proved that his movies, whether he acts in them or produces them, are strong in stories so the crowd is always promised a good experience which will help Secret Superstar ride high in theaters this Diwali.
The National Award winning actress Zaira Wasim won many accolades with her amazing portrayal of the young Geeta Phogat in Dangal and the on-screen father-daughter chemistry between Aamir Khan-Zaira Wasim in Dangal was exceptional so that will be another high point in Secret Superstar as audience loves such successful cast combination.
Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again is a big Diwali release which is bigger in buzz than Secret Superstar but that is obvious as the former is an out and out entertainer and will be grabbing a higher screen share. Yet, Secret Superstar can conduct a very good business at box office due to its story. It also has a very controlled budget and with Diwali advantage, its collections can easily fly it out to the profitable zone.
Secret Superstar will be collecting around 5-6 crore on its opening day. It is releasing on Diwali day itself, i.e. on Thursday. Till the evening, audience will be showing a good number of footfalls and from Friday onwards, it will be growing handsomely.
This Advait Chandan directorial is getting a 4 day opening weekend so if can collect 40 crore in those 4 days, it will be a highly beneficial scenario for the makers.
