23 October 2023, Mumbai: Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon’s latest cinematic venture, “Ganapath,” seems to have had a slow start at the box office, with limited growth seen over its opening weekend. The film, characterized as a futuristic action thriller, managed to accumulate approximately ₹7 crore in its first three days of release. On Sunday, the movie’s earnings amounted to ₹2.25 crore, maintaining consistency with the figures from the previous two days, where it also garnered ₹2.25 crore and ₹2.5 crore on Saturday and Friday, respectively.
Plot of Ganapath
Directed by Vikas Bahl, “Ganapath” also boasts the presence of the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, playing a significant role as a sagacious figure, showcasing a distinct appearance. This film reunites Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon, who made their debut together in “Heropanti.” Set in the year 2070 A.D., the storyline revolves around Tiger’s character, hailed as the “chosen one,” who emerges as a beacon of hope for a suppressed population. His journey unfolds in an uncharted realm as he seeks to comprehend his destiny. In a genre-defying performance, Kriti Sanon, too, engages in several action sequences, displaying expertise with the nunchaku, a martial arts weapon.
Apart from the central trio of Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon, and Amitabh Bachchan, “Ganapath” features an ensemble cast that includes Elli AvrRam, Rahman, Gauhar Khan, Jameel Khan, Girish Kulkarni, Shruthy Menon, Ziad Bakri, and Jess Liaudin. Produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, and Vikas Bahl in collaboration with Pooja Entertainment and Good Co, the film carries high expectations given its stellar lineup.
Kriti Sanon’s Aspiration to Share the Screen with Amitabh Bachchan
Although Kriti Sanon doesn’t share screen time with Amitabh Bachchan in “Ganapath,” she expressed her admiration for the legendary actor during a promotional event. She conveyed her desire to work alongside him in the future. Kriti remarked that every encounter with Amitabh Bachchan offers valuable learning experiences, describing him as a warm and legendary presence. Despite the absence of shared scenes in this film, she remains hopeful for the opportunity to act alongside him in subsequent projects.
Ganapath Future Footfalls
“Ganapath” may have started with a slow and consistent box office performance over its opening weekend, but it remains an eagerly anticipated film thanks to its ensemble cast, futuristic setting, and the potential for Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon to captivate audiences with their action-packed performances. Kriti’s aspiration to work alongside Amitabh Bachchan only adds to the excitement surrounding this film, leaving fans and critics alike eager to see what cinematic magic “Ganapath” has in store.
