Keeping an eye on Holi, it would also be interesting to watch the Anupam Kher-starrer compete with Akshay Kumar’s Bachchhan Pandey which releases on March 18.
However, experts believe that Akshay Kumar’s Bachchhan Paandey will be impacted as the TKF is dominating the screen space in Week 2 also.
#BachchhanPaandey will be impacted [business-wise] due to #TheKashmirFiles juggernaut… The screen count as well as allotment of shows has been affected, since #TheKashmirFiles is dominating the screen space in Week 2 also. #BachchhanPaandeyReview
