3 Idiots vs Dabangg vs Ready : Comparison

3 Idiots, Dabangg and Ready are three of the biggest money-spinners in the history of our film industry and comparing the box office figures of these films gives us a good idea on why 3 Idiots went on to nett 200 crores in India and remains the biggest grosser ever, why Dabangg did very well initially but couldn’t beat 3 Idiots and why Ready is unlikely to come close to the lifetime business of Dabangg.

Check out the comparison table below

* 3 Idiots Weekend and Week 1 Total includes 2.5 crore from Paid Previews.

  • Weekend: Dabangg is easily the biggest grosser earning close to 25% more than 3 Idiots.
  • Weekdays: 3 Idiots grossed 25% more than Dabangg and 50% more than Ready.
  • Week 1 Total: Due to its huge initial and record breaking weekend, Dabangg beat 3 Idiots by 2 crores.
  • Trending: The repeat value of 3 Idiots and strong word-of-mouth that the film carried was clear on Monday. Although it released during the holiday weekend, Monday business was just 50 lakhs lesser than Saturday!
  • Week 2 onwards: 3 Idiots more than doubled its Week 1 business in the coming weeks, Dabangg did just 60 crores from Week 2 onwards.
  • Can Ready beat Dabangg? : Comparatively Ready started slower, possibly due to its non-festival release, but has steadied during the weekdays. Thursday collections are almost same as Dabangg. Still, Ready is unlikely to out-gross Dabangg.

    Shahrukh Khan (Urdu: شاہ رُخ خان, Hindi: शाहरुख़ ख़ान; born 2 November 1965), often credited as Shah Rukh Khan, is an Indian film actor and a prominent Bollywood figure, as well as a film producer and television host. Khan began his career appearing in several television serials in the late 1980s. He made his film debut in Deewana (1992). Since then, he has been part of numerous commercially successful films and has earned critical acclaim for many of his performances. Khan has won fourteen Filmfare Awards for his work in Indian films, eight of which are in the Best Actor category (a record). In 2005, the Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri for his contributions towards Indian Cinema.
    Khan’s films such as Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995), Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Chak De India (2007), Om Shanti Om (2007) and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) remain some of Bollywood’s biggest hits, while films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Veer-Zaara (2004), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and My Name Is Khan (2010) have been top-grossing Indian productions in the overseas markets, making him one of the most successful actors of India.[2]
    Since 2000, Khan branched out into film production and television presenting as well. He is the founder/owner of two production companies, Dreamz Unlimited and Red Chillies Entertainment. Globally, Khan is considered to be one of the biggest movie stars,[3] with a fan following numbering in the billions[4] and a net worth estimated at over 2,500 crore (US$555 million).[5] In 2008,

    Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (Hindi: दिलवाले दुल्हनिया ले जाएँगे; English: The Big Hearted Will Take the Bride), also known as DDLJ,[3] is a Hindi language film released on 20 October 1995. A romantic comedy, the film marked the directorial debut of Aditya Chopra, and stars Shahrukh Khan and Kajol.
    Earning over Rs 106 crore in India and Rs 15 crore overseas, the film became the biggest Bollywood hit of the year,[4] as well as one of the biggest Bollywood hits of all time.[5][6] It remains the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema. As of 2011, it is still playing at the Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai.[7]
    Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge was included in the Cinema India showcase, “The Changing Face of Indian Cinema”, which toured the United States in July and August 2004.[8] Indiatimes Movies ranks the movie amongst the 25 Must See Bollywood Films.[9] It was one of the two Hindi films in the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list (the other being Mother India).[10] It was also placed twelfth on the British Film Institute’s list of top Indian films of all time

    In 1993, Khan won acclaim for his performances in villainous roles as an obsessive lover and a murderer, respectively, in the box office hits, Darr and Baazigar.[25] In Khan’s entry in Encyclopedia Britannica’s “Encyclopedia of Hindi Cinema” it was stated that “he defied the image of the conventional hero in both these films and created his own version of the revisionist hero.”[26] Darr marked his first collaboration with renowned film-maker Yash Chopra and his banner Yash Raj Films, the largest production company in Bollywood. Baazigar, which saw Khan portraying an ambiguous avenger who murders his girlfriend, shocked its Indian audience with an unexpected violation of the standard Bollywood formula.[27] His performance won him his first Filmfare Best Actor Award

  • hindi movie viewers are going deep down in taste of cinema and that is evident in the past 1 year. better these idiots watch tamil movies than salman copying RAJNIKANTH!!!what a shame to hindi cinema and bollywood.

  • ready is Super Blockbuster……!!! its a super super super funtastic movie… some dumb & dumber people hate salman…..? because they are feeling resentmen against a person because of his rivalry, success or advantages….!

  • are beta tm logo ko kya pata k Amitabh bachhan k bad koi king aur bi ho aur us ka name hai Shahrukhkhan kyoki hollywood ho ya bollywood me jo bhi hero famous hai wo sab Emotional hote hai.
    Kyoki kisi hero ka tailent tab nazar aata hai jab usko Emotional hona padta hai aur jo hero movie me emotional itna achha show kre k audions k aankh se aansu nikal jaye aur wo ada amitabh k bad shahrukh me hai aaj k samay

  • kisi hero k pahchan aur uska rank uske acting k anusar milta hai.
    Salman kewal action kr leta hai isse hero ki pahchaan nhi hoti kyoki jab salman kisi movie me siriously Rone k acting krta hai to picture me wo rota hai par asli me aap uski rone k acting dekhar hansne lagenge aur royenge ye sochkar k isse badhiya to mai beer pee lena chahiye qk salman only action kr pata hai aur wo south k hero kitna khatarnak wo action bi nhi kr pata hai.

  • lekin shahrukh khan is liye king hai qk wo sab rol ada kr leta hai
    Example

    Comedy – ( Yes boss , chamatkar , badshan )

    Sirious rol – Kal ho na ho

    Action rol – Don, shakti , mai
    hoon na
    Drama – Rab ne bana di jodi Om shanti Om

    Very very Sirious rol – ( Veer Zara )

    Drunker and so great rol – Devdas

    Sirious kid – My name is khan

    isse jade kisi ko kya dekhna hai.

    Aur bhai log Discovery channel par login kr k dekho k dusre countries me shahruk k kitne jade chahne wale hai.
    Aur is desh swarana padak matlab Gold maddle sirf bollywood me Shahrukh khan aur irfaan khan ko mila hai.

  • salman is one man army in BOLLYWOOD…..srk is parasite who depend on yashraaj and Dharma production for success

  • Salman se bada satar shahrukh kabhi nhi ho sakta kyonki kaun bada satr hai kaun chota eska faisla janta karti hai aur salman se badi fanfollowing kisi star ke nhi hai ye to aap log dekh he chuke honge

  • Salman se good looking koi nhi salman se jyada blockbuster , all time blockbuster kisi ne nahi diya .opening ke sare record toad chuke hai ek nahi 2 filme dabang , bodyguard salman ka record keval salman he tod sakta hai yaha fight salman vs shahrukh nhi salman vs salman hai salman is verygood acctor shahrukh ke tarah over acting nhi karta jo original hai wahi karta hai

  • SRK is the one and only king of bollywood. Salman jaise toh bas uske jhaaant ke baalo mein latakte hain aur kuch bhi nahi. Salman ko to MUNNI badnaam hui mein bikini pahan kar nachna chaahiye. Ek dialouge bhi dhang se bol nahi pata, woh copy cat kya DON aur G.ONE se mukabla karega. SRK lovers, please reply karna. Aur haan be Sallu ke chamchon, ab chiddh kar bandaro waali harkat mat dikhana. Humhe muh tod jawab dena chahte ho toh apne sallu se kah do ki pahle nursery mein jaakar acting ki A,B,C,D seekh kar aaye.

  • na salman na srk, the real star of bolywd is the one and only aamir khan(renchordas chanchr)
