Star Value: Due to his lovable act in his debut movie Vicky Donor, Ayushmann Khurrana is a known name while Kunaal Roy Kapur is also not a stranger due to the appreciation he received in Delhi Belly. Hence, the star value for Nautanki Saala! is moderate.
Hype: The promos of the film garnered a good response due to the humor. There is some excitement for the film’s release but it is not as high as one expected.
Music: The outrageous ‘Dhak Dhak’ remix is a known number. Even the ‘Draamebaaz’ song featuring Abhishek Bachchan has managed to get heads turn.
Nautanki Saala! is expected to get only an average to decent opening at the box office. But due to its genre, its chances rely more in the multiplexes of the metros. It will struggle at the single screen theatres, especially in the smaller towns and villages. Since it is a content oriented film, it is vital for it to get a positive initial response in order to have a good run at the box office. If that happens, there are chances for the producers to be happy.
