Welcome to New York box office collection prediction: Starring Sonakshi Sinha, Diljit Dosanjh in the leads, the film boasts of actors like Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Riteish Deshmukh and guess what - you also get a glimpse of Karan Johar as the 'big bad villain'.
Welcome to New York box office collection prediction: With an ensemble cast up his sleeve, director Chakri Toleti hits the silver screen with his much talked about film Welcome to New York. Starring Sonakshi Sinha, Diljit Dosanjh in the leads, the film boasts of actors like Lara Dutta, Boman Irani, Riteish Deshmukh and guess what – you also get a glimpse of Karan Johar as the ‘big bad villain’. One thing is for sure that the film has a slew of special appearances by noteworthy actors, including Salman Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput, among others. This has added to the hype of the film. In the upcoming flick, Sonakshi plays the role of an aspiring designer whereas Dosanjh will be seen donning the role of a wannabe actor. Given the power-packed cast, the film is set to earn anything between Rs 2-2.5 cr, as per early predictions by experts.
The film hits the screens with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety which is based on the similar genre of filmmaking. In an exclusive conversation with FinancialExpress.com, trade analyst Akshaye Rathi, however, said that both films cater to a very different audience. “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety will pull the urban young crowd whereas the latter will draw the masses. SKTS will have an inherent advantage because of the success of Pyar Ka Punchnama. Hence Welcome To New York will earn between Rs 2-2.5 crore.” Analyst Girish Johar is of the opinion that the film is going to perform well in the north because of the presence of Diljit Dosanjh and will get a good start there. He too pegs the opening collection at Rs 2.5 cr.
Welcome to New York trailer:
The clash between the films will be interesting to see since one comes from the makers of the cult venture Pyar Ka Panchnama and has its own set of takers whereas the other has A-listers but promises scarcely in terms of the storyline and unconventionality. In such a case, it will be curious to see the audiences’ drift towards both films.
