Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

On Friday (24 January), two big films were released at the box office. Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Street Dancer directed by Remo D’Souza and Kangana Ranaut starrer Panga directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari.

This is the second time in the first month of the new year when two popular films are face to face at the ticket window. Earlier on 10 January, Ajay Devgn and Kajol starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak, directed by Om Raut and Meghna Gulzar respectively, clashed.

The initial box-office reports of Street Dancer vs Panga are similar to those on Tanhaji… vs Chhapaak. For example, the difference in screen count of the two is almost the same. Worldwide, Tanhaji… got 2,380 screens more than Chhapaak while Street Dancer has been released in 2,510 screens more than what Panga has got.

Street Dancer vs Panga: Box office prediction

A Hindustan Times report has quoted trade analyst Girish Johar as saying that both films are good. But there will be a big difference in the opening of both. On the first day, Street Dancer may earn Rs 14-15 crore. Panga may open with Rs 5 crore, the report says. A similar prediction was made in the comparisons between Tanhaji… and Chhapaak.

Street Dancer is the third film of the ABCD franchise. The stars working in it Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhu Deva and Nora Fatehi are popular among the youth.

The plot of Panga revolves around a kabaddi player who is married and the mother of a child. While Kangana is a popular star, the film’s run will depend on how it gets word-of-mouth publicity.
