- Baadshaho is set against the backdrop of Emergency
- Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D'Cruz also co-star with Ajay Devgn
- Baadshaho will clash with Shubh Mangal Savdhan
Baadshaho is a heist-drama set against the backdrop of Emergency (1975). Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D'Cruz, Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jammwal also star in pivotal roles in the Milan Luthria-directed film.
Of the film's subject, Box Office India reports that looks and characters in the film will be a 'huge plus point' for Baadshaho's earnings. However, the report further states that the concept of heist has 'not worked' much. "Even a big star cast film like Khakee could not do the business despite being a very well made film. This film may not be comparable in terms of cast but it is on similar lines in terms of genre."
Baadshaho will clash at the box office with Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar's Shubh Mangal Savdhan. Box Office India predicts that the film 'won't get a large opening' but if the film's subject impresses the audiences, the collections can surpass Bareilly Ki Barfi's (Ayushmann's last release) earnings.
