This is why Rohit Shetty wants to make this movie huge and he has a good mindset not only as a director but marketing as well. It's a great strategy to air this movie in the evening so that Sooryavanshi runs 24/7 onwards. Plus, mass audience are going to enjoy like most of Shetty movies. Therefore, it can cross 300cr being Akshay Kumar's highest grosser and maybe highest footfalls which is Mohra at the moment. I don't know about HGOTY but it will be a contender for it I would say.
Opening should be between 35-40cr which shall be expected due its hype and Akshay in action. Ajay Devgn will play a crucial part it with his special appearance. Regardless of what people, his screen presence will draw attention to his mass following. After that, it will set him up for Singham 3 which is something that I have waited for years to happen.
