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.

  • Similarity between Indicine news:-

    ‘Can Don 2 beat Bodyuard or Ra.One’?

    & sure news after release of Don2:
    ‘Don 2 failed to beat Singham’.

  • i am one hundred percent sure that 3 Idiots 366 crore worldwide gross is under threat even though don 2 doesnt have universal appeal, it will destroy 3 idiots, dabangg, bodyguard, ready and ra.ones records

  • Well Don 2 will break all the records….. & This movie will makes a history…..

  • Don 2 kaliya kohe promotion ke jorurot nehi hain. Hit film apnatei sequal emnetai hit hoga. Iske upor eya SRK ke film hain Jiski fan following jada hay. Moreover the film has international appeal.

  • 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..

  • Ra.One wale mazak ke bad mere fans samaz rahe the ki ab mai kabhi lot ke na aaunga,Chulubhar pani me jake dub jaunga…

    Leking abhi baki meri kahani hai,ab bachi kuchi izzat bhi gamani hai,Muze pahachanalo mai hu koan,Aa raha aur ek flop leke mai hu Srk.

  • Don 2 may be a better film than ra may cross bodyguard’s lifetime collections n become no 2 after 3 idiots.”..but next eid n christmas..ek tha tiger n dabanng 2 r easily gonna break bodyguard’s collection n even beat 3 idiots..!!
