Dabangg 2 heading solid, spells profit for all | Dabangg 2 l
Dabangg 2, the last big release of 2012, appears to cap the entire year on the lucrative note. The Salman Khan-starrer opened up having a record-breaking collection of Rs.21.10 crore on the 1st day & trade gurus predict it’ll go into the Rs.100-crore club.
Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines shared with IANS that Dabangg 2 has opened up “exceptionally well in the box office on Friday” as well as on Saturday “collected about Rs.17 crore and it is going housefull on Sunday”.
According to him, it’s a record breaking beginning which Dabangg 2 has broken the record of Rowdy Rathore that opened up with Rs.15.10 crore.
A sequel to Abhinav Kashyap-directed 2010 blockbuster Dabangg, the part 2, considered made in a budget of Rs.50 crore, marks Arbaaz Khan’s directorial debut & repeated the lead pair of Salman & Sonakshi Sinha, while Prakash Raj replaced Sonu Sood as the villain.
Brijesh Tandon stated: “In Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, ‘Dabangg 2′ has gathered about Rs.3.40 crore on Friday that was quite expected from Salman’s film. Hopefully the film gets bigger and tonight.”
Anand Verma of DT Cinema informed that in their centres it’s got a “phenomenal response” despite a sluggish start on Friday morning and many of the shows happen to be “housefull”.
However, Vinay Choksey of VIP Movies feels that Monday is going to be crucial to the film. He said: “Today (Sunday) the film is certainly going housefull and it should collect around Rs.20 to Rs.23 crore. We’re only worried about the Monday morning collections. Hopefully there won’t be any dip on Monday.”In Mumbai, based on Manoj Desai, executive director of G7 multiplex and Maratha Mandir: “Dabangg 2 was housefull at G7 and Maratha Mandir on Friday and Saturday. Even on Sunday the film is certainly going housefull. Now let’s wait and watch how the film does on Monday.”
Will Dabangg 2 break the record of Salman’s earlier release, Ek Tha Tiger, which earned Rs.33 crore on its opening day?
“I don’t believe ‘Dabangg 2′ will break the record of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, however the film will definitely cross Rs.100 crore undeniably. Besides, Tuesday is really a (X-Mas) holiday, therefore the film will collect enough on Christmas.”
Sunil Bansal of Yash Raj Jai Pictures Pvt Ltd asserted in Rajasthan, Dabangg 2 accumulated about “Rs.1.25 crore on the first day. On Saturday, the movie amassed about Rs.90 lakh”.
Opening in Orissa continues to be average, based on Jeetu Khandelwal of Movie Pioneers, who informed that “the movie amassed about Rs.30 lakh, but it’s going housefull on Sunday”.
“Nobody is ever going to face any loss with a Salman Khan movie. But ‘Ready’ & ‘Bodyguard’ opened up with much better collection in comparison to ‘Dabangg 2′,” he added.
Manoj Desai, executive director of G7 multiplex & Maratha Mandir said: “‘Dabangg 2′ had been housefull at G7 & Maratha Mandir on Friday & Saturday. Also on Sunday the movie is certainly going housefull. Now let’s wait and watch just how the movie does on Monday.”
