Bollywood Box Office

Can Don 2 beat Bodyguard or Dabangg?

With less than 3 weeks to go for the release of Shahrukh Khan’s Don 2, it’s time to make some box-office predictions.

SRK’s last release, the spectacularly hyped Ra One, opened to a historic response at the box-office. The film recorded the highest single day collections in history. But unfortunately, it’s not the star, but the content that is ‘king’.

As a film, Ra One disappointed big time and the audience verdict was clear as early as Saturday. The makers were lucky to have an extended 5 day weekend, without which it would have probably failed to even cross the 100 crore mark. But all is well, that ends well. The film did decent business both domestically and internationally, recovered it’s investment and was a box-office HIT.

Moving on, it’s time for the evil superhero, Don. The promotions have, surprisingly, been low-key. Which could mean, the makers are confident of the film (much like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Chak De India). Farhan Akhtar is a good director. All his films – Dil Chahta Hai, Lakshya and Don – were well-directed films. But after a 5 year long hiatus from directed, during which he did well as an actor, does Farhan still have it in him as a director?

For Shahrukh Khan, the stakes are high once again. He needs a clean-HIT to re-establish his position at the top. Going purely by the box-office collections in India, both Aamir and Salman are ahead of SRK. Aamir’s 2009 release 3 Idiots, did almost 2 times the business and all three Salman Khan films have grossed more than Ra One.

  • here we go again. these srk fans never learn their lesons.. before release of ra1, they were talkin abt easily breakin the record of 3i bt what happened, ra1 didnt even break the record of ready…… nw again before the relaese of don2, they r barkin… u guys jus keep up talkin rubbish.. srk fans. bt thats gud. after the fate of don2, it will be fun to make fun of all srk fans like after the release of ra1….
    @ indincine team dont make headlines such as don2 vs bodyguard… it wil be more appropriate if it is don2 vs singham,,,, don2 will have a very hard time crossing 100 crore also.. negative effect of ra1, flop music n low promotion will effect don2. and u all srk fans,, jus keep on sayin all the record will be broekn by don2 coz the fun we had after the release of ra1, i want to experience that again after the relase of don2. hehehahah..

    Srk is not a man with golden heart,he only deals with his profit.

    Yes its true.He does freindship with Salman,Saurav Ganguly etc people in his bad time.
    If he has golden heart why he is not helping his friends in there bad time.

    ‘Maine Dada ke liye KKR kharidi hai’-aisa kaha tha usane Ipl season 1 me,to phir kuon Dada ko teamse bahar nikala?

    Srk is a good actor but not a good friend or man of good heart,phir golden heart to dur ki baat hai…am i right?

  • as per website apunka choice conducted an online poll in which around 7500 people participated and srk has been voted as best actor of 2011 with 49 percent votes followed by mallu with 43 percent votes, now all mallu fans suck on that.

  • @ Ganesh

    Yes ofcourse srk is man with golden heart, Ganguli ka jis tarah IPL me khela tha uska perfomance dekh k tumko lagta hai ki koi bhi owner usko apni team mei rakhega? Srk ne use pura chance diya tha,per vo apne khel aur attitude ki vajah se nikala gaya jeise team india se bahar hua tha. I m also big fan of ganguli, he is one of the greates player of indian cricket team, i love him for what he done for our country, per mr. Ganesh kio bhi apni team ko haarte hue nahi dekhna chaahega, sab jeetne ke liye hi khelte hai, is liye kuchh aise kadam bhi uthane padte hai.

    Aur tum sallu se friendship ki baat karte ho to vo bad time to sallu ka tha SRK ka nahi, ye sab jaante hei, haa.. haa… haa…. So pls aise vahiyaat ilzaam lgana bandh karo aur kuchh fact dhundho….
