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.

What are your predictions for Don 2? Can the film beat Bodyguard or Dabangg? Tell us in the comments section below

    I think Srk ke fans pakistan me jada honge.,kue ki wo hamesha Pakistanio ke liye hum Indians ke against jata hai.
    Jaise wo chahata tha ki Pakistani players ko Ipl me moka dena chahiye,aur BCCI ne iss baat ko mana kiya,phir srk ne hum Indians ko chalange karne ke liye Akram ko kkr ka koach kiya.
    Srk ke liye Akram ganguly se bhi jada imp hai.

    Srk always care about pakistanis.

  • Everyone is discussing about can a SRK film beat a Salman and Aamir movie collection in India, but no one discussing can a Salman and Aamir Movie beat SRK’s “My Name is Khan” overseas collection. It is because the first is possible but the latter is only a dream.

  • Don 2 seems interesting….but films like bodyguard,dabbang,singham are class apart…….i don’t think don2 could beat any of these films,
    going by the publicity im afraid it could hardly be a hit……

  • Not know about don 2 & bodyguard but Shahrukh’s film surely break 3 Idiots record 2013 & at that time Aamir has new record with Dhoom 3.

    Recently Shahrukh’s Ra.One broke record of Aamir’s Ghajhni which released 3 years ago.So thats why i think Shahrukh will break 3 Idiots record in 2013.

    Kya hai na G.One ka program Bho.Van ke program ke saamane thoda kumjor hai…..
