This Friday is seeing the release of Alvida. The film is special as it stars Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role and also marks the Bollywood debut of South star Rashmika Mandanna. Amitabh Bachchan has already been seen in a pivotal role in the biggest Bollywood film of 2022, Brahmastra. Earlier she played the lead role in Jhund and then was also seen in Runway 34, which fortunately is catching up with the times on OTT. Now that Alvida is hitting the theaters, another dynamic, emotional and sensitive act is expected from Big B.
for the other side rashmika This is an unconventional debut in Bollywood. She plays the daughter of Amitabh Bachchan and Neena Gupta and will be seen in a de-glam avatar. Also, her characterization is more like a girl next door rather than being somewhat filmy. In fact, the entire set-up of this film directed by Vikas Bahl is more about the realm of life. Interestingly, Vikas Bahl’s last film was Super 30 opposite Hrithik Roshan and emerged as a superhit. Now that Hrithik has been seen in Vikram Vedha, Vikas is coming back a week later.
Talking about the box office fortunes of the film, the film will definitely have a better opening than Jhund, which collected 1.38 crore on the day of its opening. Its set up is really reminiscent of Piku and ideally, the opening should be on the same lines. However, that film also boasted Deepika Padukone And Irrfan Khan who gave more weight to the film.
when that movie started 5.30 crore And that too during pre-pandemic, so more than half can be expected to come for goodbyes on the first day. By that logic, one expects the beginning of 2-3 crore for the film.
