  • @Fact…why..???
    if these reasons are against salaman..then these reasons are for nursury kids.
    think logically .then u ll easily get

  • @hamza khan. Buddy, what i meant is, your so called king of romance & global star srk’s epic classic JTHJ + a big star like ajay’s masala family entertainer SOS in more than 4500+ screens in india collectively collected approximately 25 crores on a “diwali day” whereas dabaang2 with 3500 screens collects around 21 crores on a “non-holiday friday”. jthj+sos combined collections per screen is 50000 rupees while dabaang2’s alone is 60000 rupees per screen for a diwali day and a non-holiday friday respectively, so salman single handedly beat both srk and ajay on a non holiday friday and that too by a huge margin.

  • Dear Indicine,

    Do you know what MG’s are being paid on D2 by exhibitors. Anything more or less than 180 cr for D2 will ensure losses. I remember the same thing with Ra.ONE. With all hype and hysteria Exhibitors paid unimaginable amount for Ra.ONE and incurred heavy losses and at any cost D2 must cross ETT in *Distributor Share* except Mumbai Territory.

    To all Fans of SRK and Salman, If you compare NBO collections and fight among yourselves will give you nothing . Till Boduguard Salman had 150-180% ROI (Return on Investment) but from ETT the thing has been reversed . With help of Season ETT collected 104cr Distributor Share with ROI of about 35-40% and trend suggests D2 will not be that profitable for Distributors/Exhibitors. Where as Salman/Arbaaz has already made huge money like SRK did with Ra.ONE.

  • Its unfair to compare D2 with JTHJ.
    Its better to compare Ready With JTHJ
    Now bring on all the facts, fig, no of scren comp and all :)

  • @ hamza khan & jeet …

    jthj & sos together released on 13 nov holiday with total screens:- 2100(jthj) + 1900 (sos)…

    total buisness on 13 nov:- 15 cr(jthj) + 10 cr(sos)…= 25 cr…

    dabang2 released on 3400 screens on non holiday :- 21 crores…..so with 1000 more screens jthj & sos did just 4 crores more!!!..

    still u feel dabangg 2 under performed??

    release jthj solo on 21st dec…guarantee jthj collection will be less than 10 cr!

  • @nvs (duplicate at 12:20 p.m) aka srk fan. You are a typical example of a sour looser fan of srk, jaab debate and argument kar nahi sakte tho galiya dethe hai aur kuch bi anab sanab bakthe hai. Always jealous of other actor’s success and always ridiculing and mocking other actor’s fans. Since you dont have guts to come up with your real name and face me like a man, better wear bangles and a burqa you looser.

  • @tejas..
    totally illogical u r talking.don’t introduce ajay or SOS here.what they did..good or bad..
    i have nothing to say for it..here comparison is b/w JTHJ and D2 ..so talk only abt it.

  • see the frustration of srk fans.. now after giving excuses they have started abusing n talking rubbish.. carry on guys.. it clearly shows u r loser srk fans :P :D LOL

  • @@Hamza khan &jeet

    Jthj and sos released on 13 nov holiday on 4500 screens….together they collected 25 crores ….

    Dabangg2 released on working day with 3400 screens and did 21 crores…..so with 1100 screens more jthj&sos did only 4 crores more !!!! Lol….

    So plz stop ur bullshit….. salman rules not only india…but overseas too…d2 has smashed records in uae & pak….in uk it is just 40 lakhs less than jthj( it released in less screen than jthj)…..

    Salman rules accept the fact man!!!

  • now that srk has lost again srk fans r using other members name to comment n talk rubbish.. they r just like srk.. LOSER.. hahaha

  • @Fact. Fact is that after delivering 3 back to back blockbusters, with his career at its peak, immense hype, possibly every advantage and 3 years later, Salman’s ETT failed to beat 3 idiots.

    @NVS and Tejas. See gentlemen, each film stands for itself. & I’m not accounting for SOS at all. So, had a film which didn’t possess any capability to oppose JTHJ released on Nov 13 too, than it would’ve probably been washed out, and JTHJ’s figures would be the only one’s standing, which could have been competitive.

  • @ jeet then why introduce screen of jthj??? Article is about collections…not screen count….so dabangg 2 21 crore thrashes jthj 15 crore!!!!!!! Lol!!!! Ab bol!!!!

  • @Tejas, indeed this article is about collections, and of course D2 has beaten JTHJ to it, but can you ignore the factors affecting/influencing the collections ? Hahaha even in advanced science, factors are more important than the subject.
    Well in that sense, 3 idiots thrashed every Salman film !!
    Ab Bol !!

  • people should remember 3 idiots is a classic n such films films are made in a lifetime.. salman khan’s ETT even with a weak story came close to 3 idiots.. thats the starpower of a phenomenon called salman khan!

  • …Then people should also acknowledge that their pride in Salman is futile because he cannot provide them with a classic product . . & so Super Star, King of BO, No.1 Salman during his golden time couldn’t beat 3 idiots. Even if ETT had beaten 3 idiots, but not by a margin, it would have still not reigned . .

  • If salman has power,then he must show his power,by releasing his movie with srk,actually reality is that everyone is afraid of srk thats y whenever srk moving is gng to release,someone releases his film around his film,they dnt have guts to face srk

  • If salman has power,then he must show his power,by releasing his movie with srk,actually reality is that everyone is afraid of srk thats y whenever srk moving is gng to release,someone releases his film around his film,they dnt have guts to face srk,and everyone knows thats sk fan only know collections after 2010,they dnt remember before that becoz they know their baap was reigning before that n still reigning for class audience nt for mindless n mass audience

  • @ Jeet

    The “ACTUAL” Day 1 collection of Dabanng-2 = 19.21 Crores courtesy BOI.

    Yesterday, BOI predicted re-adjusted figure of 18-19 crores from morning prediction of 24-25 crores after tremendous DROP in afternoon & evening multiplexes screens.

    Today, the “ACTUAL” Day 1 collection held up to 19.21 which makes BOI predictions accurate.

    Dabanng-2 DID NOT cross 20 crores at all let alone comfortably for Day 1.

    Signs are clear at the “territorial breakdown” of Dabanng-2 at MULTIPLEXES. Its been rejected by multiplexes audiences.

    From Monday onwards, expect huge drops. Dabanng hit it off with multiplexes & SS both. Not the case with Dabanng-2 at all.
