Shaakuntalam is an upcoming South Indian movie which is going to be released in theatres across India in various languages, including Hindi. The film stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu in the lead. Originally, it was scheduled to release in the theatres on 17th February 2023, but now the release date of the film has been postponed. The new release date of the film is not yet known yet. Here we have covered the budget and box office collection prediction of Shaakuntalam.
Shaakuntalam is made at a massive budget of Rs 60 Crores, and the film will need to do extremely well at the box office to recover its cost. Samantha starrer Shaakuntalam is a romantic saga derived from Indian mythology. In addition to Samantha, the film also stars Dev Mohan and Allu Arha in prominent roles. Shaakuntalam is directed by Gunasekhar, who is also producing the film.
Shaakuntalam Box Office Collection Prediction
Shaakuntalam is expected to earn around Rs 50 Crores at the box office against the overall budget of Rs 60 Crores. We expect the film to incur a loss at the box office due to its storyline, which has already been seen by a lot of people in various adaptations over the years. Even though the film is a pan-Indian release, we don’t see it faring well at the box office. Absence of an established male celebrity as the lead can also be one of the factors that affect the box office collection of Shaakuntalam.
Shakuntala, the daughter of mage Vishwamitra and nymph Meneka, falls in love and marries King Dushyant. They have a child, but due to a sage’s curse, Dushyant forgets all about Shakuntala until fate brings them together again.
