The initial of Don -2 at most of the places was quite ordinary.
The territories that reported the best start were Delhi-U.P. and Rajasthan. Collections in cinemas of Bombay circuit were, surprisingly, below the mark in the first show. Even in cinemas of C.P. Berar circuit, collections were robust in some cinemas whereas they were not very exciting in the others. For instance, at Rajlaxmi cinema in Amravati, the film collected only Rs. 3,200 in the first (morning) show against a capacity of Rs. 25,000.
Most of the multiplexes in Ghaziabad and NOIDA in the north reported full houses in the morning show, at concessional admission rates.
