Dabangg : Last two days, Two Bolls Remaining; One shot to due, Two shots to win

Dabangg box-office is nothing less exciting than cricket match in last hours. Dagangg has already grossed 58.5 Crore in just four days (Three idiots was 49.5 Crore). Tuesday is on closing note with no signs of drop, should gross approximately 9-10 Crore today. Cine lovers from all over India breathlessly waiting for remaining two days collections. At the moment Dabangg is surely going to beat Three idiots first week record collections, but with how much margin is remain to seen.

This was underlying fact that Salman has biggest fan base across the country, but most of his fan base was passive because of his choice of movies in last few years. Wanted worked as trigger to invoke his fan base that their favorite star has arrived, and resultant is spectacular collections of Dabangg. Most of upcoming movies of Salman are action packed flicks (Kick,  Wanted-2) along with comedies (Ready, Partner-2). Is Salman going to rule the Bollywood ?

  1. ready iz a comedy movie :)))))))))))))) i think salman should tak 1 yrs break & enjoy his success

    • corrected !! I was under wrong impression !!

      • bro there iz another problem, salman dont confirm wanted-2…… its -ready,kick,my lov story(remake of bodyguard)& i am haripasad……. among them only kick looks promising

        • There are lots of movies in the pipeline .. I dont think even he has decided which ones he is going to do.

          Partner 2, Wanted 2, No Entry 2, Dabangg 2 among the sequels, i dont there is a script ready for any of theose.

          Ready, Kick, Bodyguard among the remakes. Then there are also Mr India 2. I am Hariprasad is a small movie.

        • Partner-2 is very much on and there was news few days back that shooting will start in Oct/Nov. Agree on rest, none has confirmed.

          • I feel Kick is best project

          • I am from kerala and had seen the original BODYGUARD.To be frank i didn’t like the film ,but the hero of that movie was not a super hero material.so after vijay essays bodyguard in tamil we will get a fair idea how the film will fare

  2. Mene READY aur kick tamil virsion dekha. Kick to mast hay aur ready commedy + family drama. 2no min superhit hoga.

  3. yakuza how it is possible .,.3idiots 49.5cr till monday.,.and first week 80cr,.,i cant believe dis,.,.,last three day businees is 30cr???????????????????? yakuzaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • First week is yet to finsh, 80 Crore is easy target even if it drop 40% tomorrow[which is not going to happen]

  4. hello indian brother i am pakistani and i am going to watch dabangg on 17 . i love sallu

  5. 3I didn’t dropped much

  6. Salman Khan will make a major comeback.

    I agree with you, Wanted acted as the trigger point where Sallu wasn’t finished yet, as he a film for the masses, the type of audience that loved Sallu for over the years, and made him the Hero of the Masses.

    With almost all of his films acting as a “massy” film, Salman Khan can score huge collections, if we were to see Dabangg result.

    Salman Khan can possibly give Aamir Khan a fight to the finish now.


    • Salman is back in action and how. Three idiots first week record was possibly untouched for next 3-4 years by most of trade pundits, But see who broke this record and with what type of movie ? Neither salman was boxoffice king, nor movie got much acclaim, but see the BO performance. Everyone is tight lipped now.

  7. You might also wanna add Bodyguard – now known as My love story in to that.

    good times are back for him

  8. Can we expect the record of dabangg to be broken in 2 weeks times by Rajnikant movie ROBOT which will be released over 1400 cinema;s in tamil naidu itself plus Andra pradesh plus the hindi version

  9. Yep certainly good times ahead. All his upcoming projects look extremely promising. One major reason is that he’s now become serious and finally realised that he can’t harm his career by helping his family and friends. Long may it continue I don’t ever wanna see him in roles where he just comes and goes.

  10. but accrding to BOI collections are 60 crores and accrding to taran 59 crores; look at here:

  17. satish kaushik on twitter

    I hv an idea for Tere Naam 2 but still hv to develop it..let us see how it turns out..

    • Sounds very interesting. For any1 who says Salman can’t act WATCH TERE NAAM. that ending scene where he looks back before entering the van always brings tears to my eyes.

  18. naveed bhi i herad dat taran said salman khan nxt eid2011 relese wil be my love stories.is it true? Who cn be da actress u think? Pls infrm me bro

    • Yep MY LOVE STORIES is confirmed for Eid 2011. The producer is atul agnihotri, director siddique, music pritam ( t series), lead actress my money is on either Deepika Padukone or Prachi Desai (dark horse vidya balan).

      But READY comes first where he is opposite Asin, director Anees Bazmee, producer bushan kumar release date 23 June (roughly 2 weeks after ra-1)

  19. Yakuza, any prediction on lifetime of Dabangg… If it sustains in the 2nd week wil b called the modern Sholay…

  20. Dabangg tuesday will be around 9Cr. – 10cr.

  21. Dabangg 5 days total around 70 Cr.

  22. bravo so Dabangg is doing Dabangg every where. I am very very happy 4 salman bhai.

    it is called a match wining innings.

    score:- 60 (notout) chasing 206.

  23. Dabangg 5 days collection 70Cr.

  24. Komal Nahata tweeted that Tuesdays collection 10Cr.

    • saju bhai Komal nahata is telling lie, because tusday’s shows are not yet finished.

      • Even if ‘Dabangg’ touches Rs. 6 cr. or Rs. 7 cr. on Tuesday, it will be fantastic. But I feel it will be Rs. 8 cr. or in that range.

        By taran_adarsh in twitter.

  25. Saju Dey – if those tue collections are right then that’s magnificent. It’s a 1 man show and it’s all happening on non holidays.

  26. @Subhu bhai,12am ho chuka hai . so show will be finish till tuesday.Aur ticket sell kiya jata hai 10pm main . So Komal Nahat is absolutely right dude.

  27. Dabangg craze puts school in ‘hot spot’

    The craze of Dabangg isn’t just limited to people watching the film number of times but it’s definitely taken newer and interesting forms. The fans of Salman Khan have been calling up on the official phone number of a school located in a non-descript town of Fatehpur Shekhawati in Sikar district. The reason being that the landline numbers of the school have been printed on the poster of the film which are pretty much in every town and every city of India.

    Not just that, but the poster also has the picture of the school along with a picture of a girl student Chanchal Moriya, all part of the collage that forms the background of Dabangg poster.

    The owner of the New Rajasthan Secondary School, Mr. Om Prakash Jakhar, is extremely baffled by these developments. Ever since the movie released, people have been calling in wanting to speak to Salman or to understand the movie business. He has been receiving almost 400 calls every single day from places like Lucknow, Kolkata, Gwalior etc.


  28. Taran adarsh not tweeted yet brother.

  29. Taran Adarsh guessing that brother.

  30. ‘Dabangg 2’ will be bigger, better : Arbaaz Khan

    Producer Arbaaz Khan confirms the sequel

    Given the record breaking start Salman Khan’s latest film Dabangg has taken at the box office, producer Arbaaz Khan is very much considering the film’s sequel.

    Dabangg is Arbaaz’s debut production and its stupendous run has convinced the producer to go ahead with the sequel.

    Arbaaz says the sequel will indeed be made “110 percent”. But when will that happen is still questionable as Salman has a lot of other projects on hand.

    Moreover, having already set a benchmark for himself, and probably for the industry, Arbaaz now wants the sequel to be better and bigger than Dabangg. So he won’t rush into making a tacky product just to meet the market’s demand. He would ensure that the sequel has a tighter script and better action than the original.

    The buzz is that the sequel of Dabangg will be titled either Robinhood Pandey or Chulbul Pandey.

    Actresses are often changed in Bollywood sequels and it remains to be seen if Sonakshi Sinha will be a part of the sequel as well.


  31. ‘Even black marketers are happy; Dabangg revived their business’

    The antics of Chulbul Pandey—Salman Khan as a corrupt cop with a big heart who calls himself Robin Hood—have taken the box office by storm. By collecting Rs 49 crore in the first weekend, at least Rs 8 crore more than last year’s top grosser 3 Idiots, debutant director Abhinav Kashyap’s Dabangg has already got some firsts against its name. That the film had created quite a buzz was evident from the reaction to the teasers and promos itself, with Arbaaz Khan Production pulling out all stops to give it a big release on the all-important Id weekend. Whatever the critics said—’fairly ordinary’, ‘not meaningful cinema’— the audience, even at the multiplexes couldn’t help but hoot and clap. The industry, of course, is delighted that the festival season has started, literally, with a bang. For Abhinav Kashyap, film-maker Anurag Kashyap’s brother, it was a natural progression from TV, where he wrote some of the more memorable shows such as Trikaal, Rajdhani, Darr, till the saas, bahus took over, to films. Kashyap, who assisted Mani Ratnam in Yuva, says he set out to make an entertaining film, and he’s very happy with the ‘mass hysterical appreciation’ Dabangg is creating.

    Excerpts from an interview with Sudipta Datta:

    Are you surprised at the overwhelming response to Dabangg?

    I set out to make an entertaining film and I am very happy with this reaction. After all, the bottomline is very important for a film. Congratulatory messages are pouring in, the phone hasn’t stopped ringing and of the many thank you messages I have got, some are from black-marketers, happy Dabangg revived their business.

    You have been associated with TV for long; how did the shift happen?

    It’s a very natural shift from TV to film, it’s all part of a growth process. I started out with TV because that was the opportunity I got. It was a good learning ground, I did all kinds of genre, writing and directing them. The 10-11 years I spent on TV really helped to make me understand what people want to see. And Dabangg is a natural progression of that.

    You can’t run ahead of the audience, neither can you lag behind.

    Obviously, it’s important to click with the audience…

    For every film I make, I’d like that connect from the start. I am a simple guy, I write simply. As a film-maker you want to do…


  32. Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ creates history at box office

    With Rs 49 crore weekend collection

    After a stupendous start with approximately Rs 14 crore collection on its first day at the box ofice, Dabangg was expected to break the 3 Idiots’s record of first weekend collection, and guess what, it did! Can’t get bigger than this! The Salman Khan movie did approximately Rs 49 crore business in its first weekend, beating the 3 Idiots collection of Rs 38 crore.

    The movie is already a huge hit with jaw-dropping figures from every circuit. Dabangg is not only emerging as a hot favourite for the movie goers in single screens but also in multiplexes.

    In overseas market, Dabanng is doing superb business, and its box office run in UAE is great. The total overseas business in the first three days is around $2.4 million. Check out the figures here: United Kingdom – £332,673, North America – $628,317, UAE – $970,000. Awesome!


  33. Robot ki hype kesa hay ??? Mujhe to koi Interest nehi hay ??? Ap logoki keya ray hay ???

  34. Salman to work with Katrina again

    This will be one much awaited event. Salman Khan will be acting with Katrina Kaif again. Contrary to the rumours that Salman and Katrina Kaif can’t stand each other and won’t work together after their much talked-about break-up, they will be paired opposite each other in Salman’s sister’s first production venture. The film is the remake of the south super hit Bodyguard and is expected to go on the floors soon.

    Our source said, “After working with Arbaaz Khan in Dabangg, Salman will now star in a film that is being produced by his sister Alvira, who is married to Atul Agnihotri. Salman had earlier worked with Atul in Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha and Hello. Now, the big hearted Salman is helping Atul as he has bought the rights of the south hit Bodyguard. Salman will play the title role and Katrina, who is extremely close to Alvira, will be the female lead in the film.”

    The source further said, “There have been rumours that all was not well between Salman and Katrina. Although they are no longer dating each other, they continue to be cordial and friendly. Salman had no objection in working with her especially since it’s his sister’s debut venture as a producer.”

    The film goes on the floors in December.


    • Bodyguard is My Love Story, its under production and stars Deepika opp Salman I think.

      I would like to see Andaz Apna Apna happening with Katrina opp Aamir and Kareena opp Salman .. would be awesome casting.

      • My word just imagining that casting of AAA makes me very excited. BUT AAA was a classic the sequel will have to be very special. Really hope it materialises.

  35. Robot will do well in South & overseas

  36. saju dey which( salman khan) upcumin movie wil do huge business like dabangg u thik?is kagana ranuat doin any movie wid salman bhi?

    • I swear am telling the truth. Out of all Salman films (PARTNER 2, KICK, READY, MY LOVE STORIES, etc etc etc). I thought DABANGG was the weakest when it was announced. All the other films have either big directors, producers etc) but like Boney Kapoor says, ‘when you have Salman on board half the job is already done’. Something like that lol

      • Even I thought Dabangg was the weakest of all the forthcoming movies .. what with a weird movie name and an even weirder name for Salman and a team full of debutants


    Living in England I always hear Salman is the hero of masses. I see that when I watch him promoting a film or an any tv show. This film clearly shows that bhai is the darling of the masses. As I’ve said before, film is ordinary Salman makes it EXTRA – ORDINARY.

  38. I remember reading the synopsis of BODYGUARD (MY LOVE STORIES). Having never seen the original I thought wow this film really suits Salmans personality. So I have big hopes in this 1. Also looking forward to PARTNER 2.

  39. naveed bhi is kangana doin any moview wid bhi?

    • Yes, if things work out she will be opposite Salman in a film directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. I would love to see this pair. Really like her and loved the episode where she came on DKD 2.

  40. naveed bhi i think now salman doing many film .i think salman shd nt do above 2movie in year.he is cumin wid tomany like mls,ready,partner2.kick,wanted2.wid his own prodection.aloso dab 2

    • I agree. It’s not too many films. It’s spacing them out which is important. Salman had 2 films within 6 weeks and MAMK in between. That is suicidal and his producers fault. READY will now come in about 9 months so it should be HOT. Hoefully it will do well but then (if it runs for 3-4 weeks very well) 4-5 weeks later MY LOVE STORIES arrives. So I think they should bring READY to eid and MLS to Christamas.

      Another thing like Rosh and few others mentioned at the top. Apart from READY (shooting), MLS, KICK none of the others are confirmed according to what I’ve heard and read. Yes, they are seriously considering PARTNER, WANTED, NO ENTRY, MR INDIA, DABANGG all sequels. Have to say it’s an impressive lineup.

  41. Anyone realized .. Ab ki fatt gayi 😀

    • AB single handedly ruled industry from 1975 to almost 1988. The kind of craze that we see for Dabangg was normal for AB in his hey days. And now both are from different era. So please show some respect guys.

  42. Salman.

  43. ab is bsy wid kbc 4 nd now he ll challange dabangg khan.

  44. it would be great if aamir n salman team up once again n come out with the sequel of andaz apna apna.. the perfectionist khan n the spontaneous salman..sharing the same screen would be a treat to eyes for the audience..

    • Salman has paired with all the top actors, something which the others havnt done. The only 1 left for bhai is Hrithik Roshan. Would like to see them in a film.

  45. i have been a big b fan since i was a child but later in my high school time i added Salman khan as my next favourite after MAINE PYAAR KIYA & SAAJAN and have ever been his fan untill some incidents off late but he is still my favourite poster boy…as per his forthcoming films are concerned among the remakes have seen all of them (ready,kick,bodyguard)and “bodyguard” stands out and I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT NEXT YEAR SEPTEMBER WILL SEE ALL THE RECORDS IN BOLLYWOOD SHATTERING WITH MY LOVE STORY (BODYGUARD),as it will b one of Salman khans best movies if not the best,the director of BODYGUARD (SIDIQUI) is the original director of superhit remakes of HERA PHERI,DHOL,HULCHUL.so SIDIQUI has already proved his calibre in regional films as a director…GUYS I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO SEE THE MALAYALAM FILM “BODYGUARD” starring Dileep and Nayanthara and have a feel of the next biggest blockbuster of Salman khan!!

    • I remember you telling me a few months back that BODYGUARD – MY LOVE STORIES will be Salman Khans biggest hit. Only time will tell. I’m just thinking READY is confirmed around about 23rd June. Then Eid will be at the start of Sep. So am just thinking are they right to release both films within 10 weeks. Why not bring READY on Eid and MY LOVE STORIES at Christmas. What do others think.

      Bear in mind what happened to LD. Very poor promotion. And WANTED fever was still there. (MAMK) didn’t help matters even though Sohail Khan film. Anyway Salman fans let’s just enjoy DABANGG yaar. It has a POTENTIALLY a long way to go.

      • Salman is shooting for My Love Story, so it shouldnt be stalled till next Eid .. it should come sometime early next year .. Christmas season is already heavily booked.

        Then Ready 6 more months later. Or finish Ready first and release in Apr (after board exams) and My Love Story in Eid

    • on YouTube!

  46. @rosh,, apki baat me kitni sacchai hay? Keya wakei ready in april & mls in next eid ?

  47. naveed bhi dabangg 2 shud cum 2013.

    • Lol before DABANGG 2 my friend Salman bhai has many releases. To me they all look promising. I agree with Rosh and ur rite jhon vai. I agree that READY April me aye or MLS on eid. According to my sources after these 2 films the next should be PARTNER 2. They r gonna start for that soon. Wonder who the actresses will be. I really liked Lara opposite Sallu.

  48. naveed bhi what happen wid others project like mr.india 2,no entry 2

  49. @naved vai, sunke accha laga ready in april. Thanks.

  50. accroding to arjun rampal ra 1 best action movie bt I lovd deshi action like wanted and the awsome dabangg…

    • Ra – 1 will be good. But take whatever people like Arjun Rampal say with a pinch of salt. He is SRK close friend and villain in film. Btw he was poor in WAF. along with 2 great actresses you needed a strong actor. Oh well.

  51. Tarzan and jhon vai – don’t worry guyz. READY, MLS, PARTNER 2 and KICK will all happen in the near future. Then wow bhai has NO ENTRY 2, WANTED 2, MR INDIA 2, DABANGG 2. There is even talk of JUDWAA and AAA sequels. These are good times. But I always take 1 film at a time. So even though it’s hard mei sirf READY ke upar concentrate karaha ho. Lol

  52. i think salman shd work in more action comedy flicks,coz dere he gets d mass apeeal.now people expect action frm salman.i hope he makes my fav movie tere naam part 2.

    • Sids- TERE NAAM is a legendary film. I don’t see how they can better the first 1. But nonetheless it’s exciting.

  53. Hey guys READY coming in June & My Love Story coming in EID. Thats final lock kar diya jaye.

  54. some of tellin dat ra 1 weeknd will be out of imagenation more dn 60 corer.

    • ya sure. Ra1 will be 60 cr weekend. a film dat is stuck in the cans becoz srk doesnt have faith in director anubhav sinha. and guess who is helping out wid the job of salvaging an action film- well karan johar of pink ovies fame.

  55. Tere Naam Part 2 will not happen bcoz there are no good script on hand of Satish Kaushik.

  56. specialy srk fans

  57. DABANGG is on a rampage, shattering all past records that come in its path! The film is setting new records and ranks amongst the biggest openers ever. Of course, the Wednesday and Thursday figures will decide where it stands vis-a-vis the first week business of 3 IDIOTS. But as thing stand today, if the film continues to perform the way it’s performing, the first week share from India theatrical alone of DABANGG will be anywhere between Rs. 48 cr. to Rs. 50 cr. The rentals at single screens are very low and since the business at single screens is humungous, the distributors’ share from single screens will be unprecedented.

    What’s noteworthy is that DABANGG will recover the entire costs from India theatrical alone. Meanwhile, the film collected between Rs. 7.5 cr. to Rs. 8 cr. nett on Tuesday, which takes the 5-day total to Rs. 66 cr. to Rs. 67 cr. nett. Sensational!

    By Taran Adarsh, September 15, 2010 – 12:01 IST

  58. RAM -1 60 Cr. weekend . ha..ha..ha..ha..

  59. Dabangg 5 days collection 67Cr. Bhaiyaji smile plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  60. so the business 4 tuesday is arround 8 cr which is excellent. arround 1 cr less then that of 3 idiot business on tuesday.

  61. Dabangg continued its dream run on Tuesday with collections around the 8 crore nett mark as per early estimates. There were new circuit records in Delhi/UP, Bihar, CP Berar, Assam and Orissa. Infact Delhi/UP is on the sort of run never witnessed before with the Delhi/UP total being more than 15.75 crore nett in five days which is more than the 14.75 crore nett of Three Idiots in seven days plus paid previews.

    The five day total is now around the 67.75 crore nett mark as it chases the record 79 crore nett total of Three Idiots over seven days. The Three Idiots seven day total should be crossed but it may not reach the weekly total of Three Idiots of 81.75 crore nett which included paid previews.

  62. but the main fact is that the DS will be in higher range 4 Dabangg because most business are coming from single screen in comparison with 3idiot business( around 60% business r 4m multiplex).

    An i correct Yakuza bro.?

  63. 1st week DS of Dabangg will be ~50cr

  64. WOW 8 crore on tues thats incredible. It will hopefully get 82-83

    • bro had 2 get even 81cr, by going by privious trade the collection for wed and thus will 13cr(7+6), so the collection will be 80cr max as per my calculation.

      but i may be wrong.

  65. its get intersting now.2 days collection 2 come.nd around 12 to 13 crores required.i m confident it will break 3 idiots record.also wan know if some1 can tell me,r paid previews for 3 idiots included or not for dabangg to break.

  66. naved vai, next film ready. To sochenge to isko lekei, baki film badme dekha jayega. Lol

    • Lol jee ha. apne apne funde hote hain (WANTED) I’m believe it or not not thinking of nothing except DABANGG. yeh bahut badi hit hojaye then next READY. btw I love Salman – Asin jodi.

  67. Hmmmmm interesting kamal karte ho
    Atm it’s on what 67.5 then if today it makes 6 – 6.5 then that’s 74. Then thurs if it does 5. That takes it to 79. So yeah it’s a close call but exciting. Am hoping it does it.

  68. what distributor share is? some1 explain me plzzz?

  69. distributor share ka matlab kya hota hai?

    • Film is sold by producers to distributors. In most cases, producers make money by selling films at a price higher than their costs. However, if the film flops distributors loose their money. You an see distributor share as a return of investment to distributors. If it is high, it means film has made profits for the distributors. In multiplexes, the profits are often shared by distributors and others. However, on single screens the bulk of profit goes to distributors.

      • thanks SJ but i would like to know what if a film has been sold to districutors for 50cr and it earned 100cr so in that case surplus earning goest to who? is that amount goes to only distributors pockets or there is also some share/percentage for producers as well?

        • It depends. Bulk of the earnings from interior goes to distribtous only. In mutiplexes, the profits are shared by producers, distributors, multiplex owners. Generally, the contracts are written and the share percentage differs from film to film. The most scary are the so-called big movies in multiplexes. Imagine for example KItes. Sold at a very high price but failed miserably in big centers (which are expected to return 60-80 % of returns). In these centers distibutors also want others to share risks.

        • One more thing, producers also often distribute films themselves. Dabanng was distributed by Salim Khan, Arbaz Khan and co in many of teh sectors. This means that tehy have not only made money being producers of the film but also made money being distributors.

        • Take 2 examples. First one of Wanted. Second of MNIK. Both made money. Wanted was a big hit in small centers. Most of its profits went to distributors.

          On teh other hand MNIK was more successful in big centers. That is why its distributor share was lower. As they had to share the profits with others.

  70. Dabangg 1st week will be 80cr. – 82cr.

  71. 3-idiots 1st week 76Cr.+ paid previews 3Cr.

  72. SJ – very nice to see you here. Where do u see DABANGG by the end of thurs?

    • Hi Naveed. Nice to hear from you. Naveed does it really matter where Dabangg stands tomorrow, next week or next month? A star’s job is to bring the audience to the theaters. Salman has done it in an unprecedented manner. Now, the film has to stand on its own merits. Whatever happens from now onwards depends on the story, direction and other technicalities.

      I hope and wish the movie can become the biggest hit ever but I am also aware that it is not an extreme quality product. I think soon the mutiplex business will drop and though the movie will still be big in interiors, it will not emerge the biggest hit as the bulk of the business comes from mutiplexes and big cities. However, these are my opinions and I might be completely wrong.

      Regarding thursday, I feel the movie will be at par with 3I. We will never be able to know whether it has done a cr more than 3I or a cr less than 3I. Trade pundits will manipulate figures to suit their viewpoints. Another factor is the paid review business. 3I did almost 3 cr in paid reviews. It is again difficult to make a comparison as the question of including/excluding the paid reviews will be used by these pundits to their advantage.

      At the time being, I am pleased that the movie which has nothing except Salman Khan has worked so big. 3I has the world behind it. Every actor / technician of 3I was a master of his craft. It was always destined to be big. The Christmas season and additional holidays also worked big time in favour of 3I. On the other hand Dabangg only had Salman’s power to sustain and Salman has single-handedly done what all the magicians of 3I did together. This achievemnt is enough for me!

      Lets wait and see where the business leads from here. You never know what to expect from Salman!

  73. i dont understant BOI,
    Whats with this new messup? 3Idiots collected 79 crores WITH paid previews, without paid previews, its got 76.30 crores. and of u calculate the paid preview oc 2.75, then it come 2 79cr.

  75. Dabangg’ Tuesday Rs. 8 cr. nett. 5-day total Rs. 66 cr. to Rs. 67 cr. ‘

    3 Idiots’ with paid previews to Tuesday was Rs. 61.65 cr. nett.

    then in this case 3idiot collected 20cr in wed & Thursday . i dont think so….

    • subhu in comparasion wid 3i we shudnt include the paid preview business as dabangg doesnt have any paid preview in iits figure but yes overall it goest in the favor of 3i so we should say 3i collected 17cr in two days (wed & thu) which is possible. Im absolutely salman fan but f we honestly see then 3i is much better movie than dabangg which got the repeat value. As arbaaz himself said that its great to compare my film wid 3i as business point but his movie is not as great

      • oh Bro i am a die heart fan of Amir khan and Sallu bhai. quality wise 3idot is much more ahead the Dabangg.

        i posted a commented before that Dabangg is a one time watch movie. Salman bhai is all the in the movie. u just put sallu out of this movie, then this movie doesn’t have the potential 2 cross even 10cr.

        i am comparing only the Business point of view not from the class point of view.

        this movie bring a revolution in bollywood. sallu bhai did it before with MPK and HANK. Now only history is repeating and i am enjoying that success only.

  76. I don’t normally jump the bandwagon but subhu bro BOI have cocked up. I would like to think they have done it unintentionally.

  77. he five day total is now around the 67.75 crore nett mark as it chases the record 79 crore nett total of Three Idiots over seven days. The Three Idiots seven day plus paid previews total of 79 crore nett should be crossed as Dabangg finishes the week with 80 crore nett plus collections.


    lol dey hv realized it.may b read ur comments

  78. BOI realised their mistake and corrected in d post
    Dabangg continued its dream run on Tuesday with collections around the 8 crore nett mark as per early estimates. There were new circuit records in Delhi/UP, Bihar, CP Berar, Assam and Orissa. Infact Delhi/UP is on the sort of run never witnessed before with the Delhi/UP total being more than 15.75 crore nett in five days which is more than the 14.75 crore nett of Three Idiots in seven days plus paid previews.

    The five day total is now around the 67.75 crore nett mark as it chases the record 79 crore nett total of Three Idiots over seven days. The Three Idiots seven day plus paid previews total of 79 crore nett should be crossed as Dabangg finishes the week with 80 crore nett plus collections.

  79. Even Judwaa2 coming up as per Nadiadwala’s site. Lets see how it develops.

  80. Now i am happy:)

  81. Saju kamaal krte ho kya apko abhi bhi lagta dabangg 3idiots se aage ja paye gi 1st five day dabbang 66cr .,.2 din me 14cr no chance bro.,.agar 14cr collect karegi tabhi taran adrsh aur baki maane ge sirf boi se kuch nahi hoga media to taran ki hi sunta he SAJu

  82. @Ninja , kamal karte ho Tarana ne kaha 67Cr. idiot not 66Cr. & 14cr. kaise lagegi Dabangg needs 10Cr. for break the record of 3- idiots. Without paid previews 3-idiots collected 76Cr.Sa Dabangg need 9Cr.+ to break the record of 3-idiots.

  83. Dabangg need 10Cr. in two days for break the 1st weeks record of 3-idiots.

  84. 3-idiots 1st week 76cr.

    Dabangg – 5 days 67Cr.

  85. So guys Dabangg need 10Cr. in 2 days .So guys just wait & watch.

  86. .does any 1 knw total ds of 3i.?what ws 2nd weenknd business of 3i?i think 2nd weeknd ws hugeg

    pls ..ans..

  87. naveed bhi wht do u expect 2nd weekend businss of dabangg ? I fink 2nd weekd ll not less dn 20 cr..

  88. accrding to sajid nadiwalia kick will start in winter

  89. Saju Jamal karts ho record to record hota he .,3idiots 79cr ke liye jaani jati he agar dabangg ko phele no. Pr Aana he to 80cr krna hi hoga

  90. I think dabangg will cross 3i total of 79 cr of first week which includes paid previews also.
    However, it is difficult to match up with 3i from 2nd week onwards.

  91. thx sabhu.. What do expect 2nd weekend dabang cn made?


    • Just heard. This is an achievement @68 Age. 3rd National award as best actor and 4th National award including best New Comer for Saat Hidustani.

  93. dabanggs 2nd weekend will b more den 20crs.nd 2nd week will b more den 40crores.

  94. My question is whether Dabangg will be an All-Time Blockbuster?

    • Depends on second week performance.

    • It will be all time earner in my books if able to cross 125 Crore.

      • Thanks buddy. What is the distribution that Dabangg needs to be a All-Time Blockbuster?

        How is Dabangg doing Wednesday buddy, and does Dabangg have enough steam in its engine to beat 3I opening week nett gross of 76.30 crores (2.75-2.9 crores were from the paid previews)?

        • Dabangg is well on its way to 80 cr first week. Week 2 onwards predictions:

          Week 2 – 30 cr
          Week 3 – 10 cr
          Week 4 – 5 cr

          By week 4 it should have 125 cr and become an ATBB

        • dabang is now droping ,gap of each day collns bw 3I and DABANG is now widely increasing in 3I favour

  95. Dabangg 2nd weekend will be 25cr.

  96. Dabangg 1st week will be 40Cr.+

  97. I might get into direction: Sonu

    Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who is riding high on the success of his latest film ” Dabangg”, revealed that he might consider direction in the future.

    “I might get into direction in the future. During my years in the industry, I have learnt a lot of technicalities of filmmaking, so I might utilise that knowledge someday,” the actor told.

    Sonu has been part of films like ” Aashiq Banaya Aapne” (2005), ” Singh Is Kinng” (2008) and ” Jodhaa Akbar” (2008), among others.
