Dabangg 2 Sunday & Opening Weekend Collection Update.
Dabangg 2 has shown jump on Sunday fromSaturday and Friday at the box office. As we have received the sample reports from various centers specially of multiplexes, the occupancies for the day is very good. D2 has registered many Sold Out shows for Noon and Evening shows.
Morning shows started with bang with occupancies of around 70%. After that it registered an occupancies of 85-90% for Noon and Evening shows all India. Night and late night shows occupancies registered drop, but still was above 50% on average. Overall occupancy for the whole day was around 70-75% which is pretty good.
As per early trends D2 should collect around 22-23+ crore nett all India on Sunday. Though it is too early as major single screen reports is still to receive. If reports of SS is good then even 24-25 crore nett is possible. D2 has collected around 21.1 crore on Friday and further 19.05 crore on Saturday. D2 First Weekend Collection is now heading for 63-64 crore nett mark. If this happens it will break the ETT first three days collections by around 3-4 crores. This is fantastic by any means.
One thing is certain that D2 biggest single day collections is definitely short of ETT’s 32.92 crore nett mark and this has led to many theories. But, point is that those are benchmark and is not easily breakable. Moreover Salman is now competing with his own benchmarks. Dabangg 2 real test starts from Monday which will suggest what is audience verdict and how it will perform in long run.
