Comparisons are unfair but inevitable. The clash of Animal Vs Sam Bahadur has been the talk of the town since morning, but surprisingly has not been reported yet. We are talking about the ticket sales that have been happening at the theatre windows. The advance booking in certain pockets has opened and Animal has recorded 20 times more the number of tickets compared to Sam Bahadur.
Of course, this is not the final verdict on the collections that will be eventually recorded but so far the update that is coming in is highly tilted in favour of the Ranbir Kapoor film. Take this: This morning, at a given instant, for the opening Friday, PVR Inox has sold 43000 tickets for Animal and 2100 tickets for Sam Bahadur. On the other hand, Cinepolis sold 9500 tickets for Animal to 500 tickets for Sam Bahadur. These figures have a multiplicative factor of approximately either 19 or 20.

We have also heard that the makers of Sam Bahadur have tried to get an equivalent number of screens, but so far the exhibitors have planned to give them a 30 per cent share while Animal will get a 70 per cent share.
Let’s wait and watch what happens on Friday and the further graph of both films.
Animal stars Anil Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandana and Bobby Deol in important roles, Sam Bahadur has Vicky Kaushal, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra and Neeraj Kabi. The former is produced by T-Series, Bhadrakali Pictures, Cine 1 Studios and Cars On Film and directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the latter is produced by RSVP Pictures and directed by Meghna Gulzar.
