Just a day to the release of the much anticipated ‘Chup’ and it’s all set to open with a record audience with an enormous 1.25 lakh tickets booked yet.
Post pandemic, R Balki’s psychological thriller is among the top three films to get the highest number of advance bookings.
The film, which involves an unusually gripping storyline, has exceeded pre-booking records of hits like ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ (63K), ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ (57K), ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ (56K), ‘Shamshera’ (46K), ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ (41K) at the three national chains with a day and a half to go.
The film’s pre-booking sale might also challenge the big digits of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ (1.03L), reports said.
The film’s public free-screening was a major success that eventually sold out the tickets for the first day of the film in 10 minutes.
Director R Balki opens the film to the audience at a price as low as Rs 75 on the celebrated occasion of National Cinema Day.
With a day to its release, we expect more rise in the digits of booking and it’s the director R Balki to be all euphoric to strive to lock more screens after a massive 800 theatrical spaces being already locked for the film’s powerful opening.
The film is set to release on September 23 and headlines a power-packed cast, including Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Pooja Bhatt. The movie is produced by Hope Productions and Rakesh Jhunjhunwala. The film is written by R Balki himself based on the story he started working on a few years ago. The screenplay and dialogues have been co-written by R Balki, critic-turned-writer Raja Sen and Rishi Virmani.
