As was being expected all across, Salman Khan and his Dabangg has shattered all records in opening day collections for Bollywood movies.
Dabangg released to packed houses all across in India and registered huge collections. Releasing on the Eid weekend, the film was expected to do quite well, but everyone was waiting for the magnitude of it. Now that the film has been released, it has broken the earlier opening day record set by Aamir Khan starrer Three Idiots.
Dabangg grossed a whopping 14.25 crore nett approx on its first day of release. As no other upcoming movie to challenge its supremacy is scheduled to release in the coming few weeks, Dabangg is on-way to becoming one of the all time biggest earner. Kajol and Kareena starrer “We are Family” was the only other movie that could have challenged it at the Box Office, but it has failed to do good business apart from the metros.
Aamir’s Three Idiots did a total business of almost Rs. 203 Crore and it’d be interesting to see if Dabangg can cross that amount.
In 2009 as well, Salman released Wanted during Eid festival and the movie did exceptionally well. Dabangg has got a lot of positive reviews from almost all major critics and this has helped in its success.
