Tees Maar Khan has a megastar like Akshay Kumar, huge hype, and super hit music including chartbuster Sheila Ki Jawaani and this will insure a juggernaut opening on 24th December.
The question as always when a big comes around is will it be a record breaking opening. The record opening weekend till date stands at 48.75 crore nett approx which was set by Dabangg a few months back.
Tees Maar Khan may challenge that total but it will come down to the business that it manages in singles screens of Maharashtra, UP, CP Berar, CI, Rajasthan and Nizam as Dabangg was like an unstoppable hurricane in these areas. The action factor in Dabangg attracted the masses in a big way in these areas.
Multiplex business may well be on par or even slightly better than Dabangg and if Tees Maar Khan gets close to Dabangg numbers in the areas mentioned above then it may be that it crosses the Dabangg weekend record otherwise it may have to settle for a total around the 44-45 crore nett mark. Another factor that could go against the film as far as breaking the opening record is that it will be fourth release of Akshay Kumar this year and records are normally not broken by stars who have releases so frequently.
A 50 crore nett weekend would be a huge achievement by Tees Maar Khan if it was to happen and a great way to end 2010 on a high note.
