As per reports, Saina film is based on the life of Badminton player Saina Nehwal. It stars Parineeti Chopra who will play the titular role as Saina Nehwal. Saina is scheduled to be released on 26th March 2021.
The film is directed by Amol Gupte who has earlier made a sports film Hawaa Hawaai with Saqib Saleem, which was based on skating. Here we have given experts' take on Saina box office prediction.
According to movie trade analysts, The Parineeti Chopra starrer 'Saina' belongs to a genre that traditionally opens slow and then goes on to climb well over the weekend. In the COVID-19 times, the film could have seen an opening of around ₹3 crores on Friday, and then if the movie received critical applause, it could well have seen a major jump on Saturday to find itself in the ₹5-6 crores range.
However, the current COVID-19 resurgence has just come after the reopening of theatres. Hence, one can’t be certain of how audience footfalls would turn out to be. Saina box office prediction for the opening day is expected to fall somewhere around ₹1-1.5 crore due to the increasing number of cases in Maharashtra and competition with Mega-budget John Abraham Starrer Mumbai Saga.
Anything on top of the ₹1-1.5 crore range would be added bonus and post that it would be all about word of mouth and the point in time pandemic situation coming into play. So this was the experts' take on Saina box office prediction.
According to audience's score of the movie, Saina box office prediction for its overall theatrical run might be close to ₹15 Crore, surprisingly, Saina is expected to earn more through its OTT release.
