As the countdown to the much-anticipated release of Vicky Kaushal’s ‘Sam Bahadur’ inches closer, the advance bookings for its opening day are gaining momentum, giving a glimpse of its promising start at the Indian box office.
The Upcoming Clash & Movie Premise
Scheduled to clash with Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Animal’ on December 1, ‘Sam Bahadur’ directed by Meghna Gulzar, chronicles the life of India’s inaugural Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw. Rooted in a real-life saga and celebrating the valor of an Indian patriot, the film’s slow but steady advance bookings hint at an impending face-off with the grandeur of Ranbir’s release.
Advancements in Pre-Sales & Surpassing ‘Selfiee’
The recent surge in advance bookings for ‘Sam Bahadur’ showcases promising figures despite facing initial overshadowing by ‘Animal.’ Grossing 91 lakh in ticket sales (excluding blocked seats) with over 27,000 tickets sold, the film has already outpaced the final pre-sales of Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Selfiee,’ which accumulated 90 lakh on its opening day.
Future Projections & Audience Reception
With the release date looming close, the momentum in advance bookings is expected to surge further. Projections indicate ‘Sam Bahadur’ aiming to reach or exceed the 2.50 crore gross mark in its final pre-sales figures, setting a favorable stage for its debut. However, the ultimate success will hinge on audience reactions to the content, with ‘Animal’ anticipated to take an initial lead in this cinematic duel.
