So, one of the few questions that is asked by many is what will be the box office opening of Action Jackson and PK? Before answering that question like to state that November 2014 is easily the worst month of the year. In fact it is one the the worst month in recent years. Actually its very difficult to remember when such dismal phase (including pre-EID months) in recent past.
Now coming to the query. First is Action Jackson set to release on 5th December that is 3 days time. Film is a major solo release and has two open weeks untill another big release in PK. This is a plus for the film whereas it is also releasing in non-Holiday phase. Looking at film promos, songs and Ajay Devgn recent Hit in Singham Returns. Action Jackson should take an opening in the region of 13-15 crore nett. If film has strong content and liked by masses then film has every chance to score big and should put up a big first weekend. That means film has every chance of collecting in the region of 125-150 crore nett mark in its lifetime. Means Ajay Devgn is set for to back to back Hits in 2014 and ending the year on a big high.
Coming to PK which releases on 19th December. It is definitely one of the biggest release in recent times. Film although having Christmas Holiday, but it falls on weekdays. Hence, film will have non-Holiday Friday opening. But looking at film craze and magic of Raju Hirani and Aamir Khan combination, film should have a opening in the region of 25-30 crore nett mark. This is despite Friday being a normal working day. If film content is strong film might head for Historic numbers as film has got three weeks of free run till Tevar and has good Holiday phase in Christmas and New Year eve. No doubt film will challenge Kick for highest grosser of the year and also Dhoom 3 all time record is in danger.
