The Kashmir Files and it's effect on new releases Bachchhan Pandey and RRR (Hindi)

Hindi Film Industry is jubilant with the blockbuster showing of The Kashmir Files. After Gadar and Baahubali in the 2000's, it is the third film on to a historic showing. While nobody in the industry expected it, now that it is an All Time Blockbuster, industry is mulling about the effect on future releases.

The writer feels that this unprecedented success will definitely affect both Bachchhan Pandey and RRR (Hindi), however Bachchhan Pandey will be more affected of the two as it is a Hindi film and The Kashmir Files is exceptionally strong in the Hindi heartland. Reportedly, trade experts are of the view that going by estimates as of now, the final business of Bachchhan Pandey will be affected to the tune of 15 to 20 crores, on the opening day alone! The final tally may see a hit of a whopping 50-crore or more, that is the lifetime of more than 85% Indian films released in cinemas.
While the trailer was loved by all, no one expected The Kashmir Files wave to sweep the box-office. The Kashmir Files will affect the business of RRR (Hindi) as well, however, since it is a Telugu movie the effect will not be that big, since it will do big business down south.
A wiser move would've been to postpone Bachchhan Pandey, but with such a close release, it wouldn't have been possible.
