The sequel of 2010 release film ‘Dabangg’, Dabangg 2 may have got off to a flying start, but the box office collection of the film has now slows down. It is said that the films is doing as well as expected.
The action packed film of Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha’s film has collected Rs 127 crores in the first ten days of its release.
However, an industry source said, “The second weekend hasn’t been smiling upon the Khan-daan as much as they were expecting. The Friday numbers added up to only Rs 4.5 crore, Saturday to Rs 5.5 crore and Sunday jumping to Rs 9 crore, earning Rs 19 crore over the weekend.”
The total collection of Salman’s Dabangg 2 stands at Rs 127 crore.
Distributor Akshaye Rathi said, “Dabangg 2 has performed extremely well at the BO, but if certain external factors had favoured it better, the film would have been on a different level by now.”
He said, “The Indo-Pak cricket series and all the news about the heinous Delhi gang-rape grabbed the attention of the country (and justifiably so), keeping a lot of people from going to the cinemas.”
Experts said the film may not cross the Rs 200 crore mark and only a miracle can make Dabangg 2 go past the Rs 200 crore mark. Let’s just wait and watch.
