2022 was a bad year for the industry as some of the biggest films flopped big time. At the same time, there were a few surprises. Drishyam 2 was one such film. Starring Ajay Devgn, Tabu, Akshaye Khanna and Shriya Saran, it surprised the trade and industry as it collected a mind-boggling Rs. 240.54 crores at the box office. The first part, which was released in 2015, collected Rs. 67.13 crores. As a result, no one expected the sequel to enter the Rs. 200 crores club. Moreover, Drishyam 2 is a thriller and not a typical family entertainer due to which its box office performance took everyone’s breath away.Gumraah trailer launch: Aditya Roy Kapur says Drishyam 2’s BLOCKBUSTER box office success is an encouraging sign for their thriller: “If we have made a good film, the audience would come for it too”
Meanwhile, another thriller, Gumraah, is all set to release soon and it also belongs to the thriller genre. The trailer of the film was launched today at a multiplex in Mumbai and was attended by the film’s lead cast, Aditya Roy Kapur and Mrunal Thakur, producer Murad Khetani and director Vardhan Ketkar.
At the event, Aditya Roy Kapur was asked if the super success of Drishyam 2 is an encouraging sign and indicates that even Gumraah can spring a surprise at the ticket window. To which, Aditya said, “Absolutely. It’s very encouraging to see a film like Drishyam 2, belonging to the same genre, do so well and to see how the audiences took to it. They came out in droves for that film. We can only hope that we have done a good job. If we have made a good film, audiences would come for it too.”
Gumraah is jointly produced by Murad Khetani and T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar. Both have also collaborated on blockbusters in the past like the Shahid Kapoor-starrer Kabir Singh (2019) and Kartik Aaryan starrer Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (2022). Murad at the event was asked about his box-office expectations for this thriller. He replied, “Expectations toh hai (laughs). We are very confident about it. We have seen the film. Hence, we are hoping for a similar kind of success for Gumraah.”
Gumraah also stars Ronit Roy and is all set to release on Friday, April 7, 2023.
