This Independence Day, three big films are set to release together on the box office.
Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal, John Abraham’s Batla House and Prabhas’ Saaho will all release together on 15 August 2019.
All mega projects with major stars in them will clash at the box office resulting in a division of screens, shows, and the overall collections.
Prabhas and Shradhha Kapoor starrer Saaho is a grand project and, perhaps, one of the most expensive films in Indian cinema history to release on screens.
Besides Telugu and Tamil, the film will also release in Hindi and Malayalam, which makes the total number of screens distribution a little difficult to decipher.
Balta House which had John Abraham in the lead is being helmed by Nikkhil Advani and is based on Operation Batla House that took place in 2008. In the film, John Abraham will play the role of a police officer named Sanjeev Kumar Yadav.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed today that the film will also release on 15 August 2019. He shared a post on social media announcing the same.
Another mega project, which is being co produced by Akshay Kumar, R.Balki, Aruna Bhatia and Anil Naidu, Mission Mangal has an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Sharman Joshi and Sonakshi Sinha.
Mission Mangal tells the story of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation ( ISRO) who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India’s first interplanetary expedition.
Mission Mangal is being directed by Jagan Shakti and Saaho by Sujeeth.
All three films within one week on one holiday will divide footfalls and audiences as far as the opening week’s collections are concerned. Trade analysts are not making any predictions yet. As to how the show unfolds on 15 August this year across cinema screens across the country will be a delight to watch.
