Dabangg 2 UK Box Office: Good opening day

In the United Kingdom, the response to Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2 was good. The film collected approximately £102,000 (Rs 90.95 lakhs) on it’s opening day.

Considering the fact that most Bollywood action movies under-perform in the overseas markets, the opening day figures are very good.

In comparison, Shahrukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected £158,300 (Rs 1.4 crores) and Talaash collected £108,085 (Rs 96.16 lakhs) on Day 1.

so jthj collected just 40 lakhs more on day 1…now dont say that action masala movies are cheap & salman movies rock becoz of genre…..

the reason is…salman movies rock becoz of salman and srk movies suck becoz of srk!!!

JTHJ :
run time : 180 min
with 2500 screens —if we count an average 4 shows for 1 screen bcoz runtime 180 min
total shows of JTHJ= 2500 multiplied by 4= 10000
Collections=19.5 cr.
DABANGG 2 :
runtime : 120 min
with 3500 screens—-if we count an average 6 shows for 1 screen bcoz runtime 120 min
total shows of DABANGG 2= 3500 multiplied by 6=21000
collections : 19.5 cr.
means with 11000 more screens , the earning of both the films are same
i want to ask u , in what aspect salman is box-office king???
now stop calling salman as box-office king
results are infront of you…

Because I guess ‘Us Overseas Audience’ watch and understand English movies, compared to which Indian Action and Masala movies are nothing but a product to laugh at, honestly.

Now I await the next Salman fan to tell me that Salman’s action movies’ are way better than English action films. LOL !! =D

Its funny how @Fact speaks about less screens Overseas, but ignores the fact that D2 had about 1000 screens more than JTHJ in India. This really speaks out your mindset :D:D

@hamza khan yaar dabaang 2 is a typical desi masala movie stictly made for illiterate and less educated middle class and lower middle class people of india (also called as masses) and it is not for the so called educated,intelligent and elite people (the classes). Here in india salman is the only bollywood who is treated & worshipped as a demi-god in india, (only mr.bachaan sir gets such sort of adulation among the masses), so salman’s movie release is nothing less than a festival for the indian masses and they just want to see salman and his entertainment and they dont even care about the things we “INTELLECTUALS” care about, so dabaang 2 works for them.

@hamza khan. Yaar wait for 3 more weeks to know what dabaang 2 will eventually collect and dont be suprised if it even collects more than 200+ crores net in india after all it is a S A L M A N K H A N’s movie not srk’s.

@NVS your argument is valid and I really like the way you confessed that Salman’s movies cater for the lower, middle an unintellectual sort in India (the masses). What a way to represent your country ‘Bharat’. Way to go Mr.NVS. I applaud you.

@NVS, I’ll even say In Sha Allah Dabbang 2 crosses 200cr because my religion and upbringing has taught me never to wish loss for anyone. :)

@hamza khan. i dont like your statement “what a way to represent your country ‘Bharat’ “(I feel this statement sort of mocks the way india is, i exactly did not comprehend what you actually meant here ), though it may be a fact. India is a land of great extremes, we have some of the richest people in the world here and at the same time some of the poorest people on the earth, some of the most brilliant brains in the world are from india and at the same time india’s literacy rate is lowest among the would-be super powers, like these there are so many extremes but that is again the great irony and a great paradox of this divine land. Feel blessed,privileged and extremely fortunate to have taken birth on this holy land……….. Sorry yaar thoda emotional ho gaya, anyway thank you for nice comments, appreciate it.
