Anurag Kashyap has been out of the spotlight for some time. Though he was seen in AK vs AK (2020), his last picture as a filmmaker, Choked (2020), was released more than two years ago. Since then, the director has returned with Dobaaraa, a strange thriller starring Taapsee Pannu. It will be released in theatres on August 19th, after making waves at a number of international film festivals. Dobaaraa box office day 1 advance booking, total screen count, & opening day collection report is given here.
One thing is for sure, the hype around this movie is extremely low, just like the fan following of the actors in the movie. As per reports, the advance booking for the film is less than ₹10 Lakhs. Unlike big budget or medium budget films, Dobaaraa will not get a lot of shows & screens in the theatres. It's highly unlikely for the Anurag Kashyap film to get more than 1500 screens throughout the country.
The movie opens on Friday, but the buzz is too low, and it will gross just lakhs. The film's lifetime box office will be lower than Kangana Ranaut's Dhaakad. According to trade observers, this will be Taapsee's second flop in a succession, following the cricket biography Shabaash Mithu. When big-budget star films in Bollywood are failing miserably, this film is doomed to fail.
Dobaaraa is expected to be released at over ₹45 lakh nett and earn roughly ₹1.3 crores on the first weekend. The film's lifetime total is expected to be around ₹3 crores at the box office.
