Salman Khan and Disha Patani starrer ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ has finally released in selected theatres and streaming on ZEE5, ZEEPLEX. Talking about the big-screen release, the film has hit the silver screens in 40 countries across the globe. Gulf nations, Australia and other countries have people visiting the theatres to watch the Prabhu Deva directorial on the big screen. However, as per reports in Box Office India, in Australia, the response for Radhe is 40% lower than that of Bharat which was an Eid release in 2019.
The portal also reported that a massive response can be expected from Gulf countries as Salman has a huge fan base in those nations. During a recent interaction, when Khan was asked about box office collections of Radhe, he had said, “We may get the lowest numbers with Radhe. It might not even cross 10-15 crores. We would lose money on Radhe and box office collections are going to be almost zero.”
Talking about Radhe release, trade analyst Atul Mohan told News 18, “Very few theatres around the country, some in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh, are expected to be screening the film. The revenue generated will be negligible. Salman Khan’s films are critic-proof, a negative review has never affected his film. He knows he is an entertainer and has to do films that appeal to the masses. He never bothered about what critics would say.”
He added, “Since OTT platforms do not reveal their viewership numbers, there is no way to say whether the film is a hit or a flop. After watching the film, one can do a comparative analysis of how much the film could have earned if it had a regular theatrical opening in pre-COVID-19 times.”
