‘Dunki’ Box-Office Collections Total Worldwide; ‘Salaar’ Wins the Race

Shah Rukh Khan's highly anticipated film "Dunki" has finally hit the theatres, and early estimates suggest a strong opening day at the box office. While initial predictions eyed a ₹32 crore debut in India, the film's actual performance might end up surprising everyone. Early Buzz and Advance Bookings: Image of Dunki movie posterOpens in a new window www.imdb.com Dunki movie poster Despite mixed reviews from critics, "Dunki" generated considerable pre-release buzz due to Shah Rukh Khan's immense popularity and the film's intriguing premise. Advance bookings also showed promise, with reports suggesting collections around ₹12 crore on Wednesday. Opening Day Estimates: Trade experts now predict "Dunki" to earn an estimated ₹30-35 crore nett in India on its first day, including all languages. This figure, while lower than Shah Rukh Khan's previous film "Jawan" which had a massive ₹75 crore debut, is still considered encouraging for a comedy-drama like "Dunki."

Shah Rukh Khan’s much-anticipated comeback film, Dunki, opened to decent but not spectacular numbers on Thursday. However, Day 2 has seen a significant drop in collections, raising questions about the film’s long-term prospects. While it’s still early to call it a hit or flop, let’s dive into the box office figures and analyze what might be causing the dip.

Day 2 Earnings: A Cause for Concern?

Reports suggest that Dunki raked in around Rs. 20.5 crore on its second day in India, marking a substantial drop from its opening day collection of Rs. 30 crore. This represents a decline of nearly 33%, which is certainly noteworthy. The film’s total Indian net collection now stands at approximately Rs. 50 crore after two days.

Red Chillies Entertainment, the film’s production house, painted a rosy picture, claiming a global “Gross Box Office Collection” (GBOC) of ₹58 crore on opening day. However, trade analyst Sacnilk offered a less enthusiastic domestic figure of ₹35 crore gross, with an additional ₹23 crore gross coming from international markets.
