According to our trading sources, Goodbye managed only one 90 lakh at the box office on day 1. This is less than Amitabh’s last release, Jhund, which earned 1.5 crore on day 1. In comparison, Chiranjeevi’s Godfather, which also came out this week, enjoys a much better run at the box office. It deserved 100 crore in three days since its release.
Earlier, the producers behind Goodbye had announced that the film’s first day tickets will be available for 150 across the country. Balaji Motion Pictures shared a short video of Bachchan making the announcement on his official Twitter page.
“Our movie ‘Goodbye’ arrives on October 7th in a cinema room near you. We have decided that on October 7th Goodbye’s ticket will be special. “The ticket is available at 150. So please take your family to the movies at a nearby theater. See you there!” said the 79-year-old in the clip.
Starring Rashmika Mandanna, Neena Gupta, Pavail Gulati, Elli Avram, Sunil Grover, Sahil Mehta and Abhishek Khan, “Goodbye” explores themes of self-discovery, family dynamics and celebration of life in the midst of death. The film portrays the chaos of every family dealing with the ups and downs life brings, but it also gently reminds us of how important it is to be there for each other through it all.
Amitabh will next be seen in Sooraj Bharjatrya’s Uunchai with Parineeti Chopra, Boman Irani and others. He also has Project K with Deepika Padukone and Prabhas.
