Dear Zindagi Friday (Day 1) Box Office Collections

‘Dear Zindagi’ has collected Rs 8.75 crore on its opening day at the box office, making it the 14th highest opening day of 2016. The film is lower than Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro and ahead of films like Ki and Ka.

Released on 1200 screens, ‘Dear Zindagi’ has managed a fairly good opening total inspite of being a niche film, holding appeal only towards a small section of the audience in metro cities. Most of the business has come from these 4-5 cities, with others taking a better than expected opening due to Shah Rukh Khan’s presence.

In comparison, the opening day is higher than Deepika Padukone’s Piku – which collected 5.7 crore on Day 1. It’s at around the same level as ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’.

  • So 1200 Screens.. Avg occupancy of 40-45% whole day and still 8.75 Cr ? ??… Do the Math..
    Oh wait its – Source Red Chillies

  • This is the level of opening srk ‘s presence generates??? LMAO ROFL!!!!!!! .Some people say he has 3.2 billion fans.. SRK will compete with new actors for who opens higher from next year.

  • Decent Opening overall.
    1st weekend will be 30 cr plus.
    1 st week 45 cr plus
    LBO will be 60 – 65 cr
    Verdict – Above Average/Semi Hit.
    Hope my prediction fails & it earns much more than this.

  • It is the first time indicine reporting lower than boi. Everyone claiming 9.5 crore beating mohenjo daro!. From 1200 screens, 9.5crore after note ban is simply superb!!! All coz of SRK star power! I watched it 3 times in Dubai, we’ll watch again! What a great movie with superb dialogues from SRK!

  • AWatched #DearZindagi
    After #PINK , watched a thoughtful movie which s Vry rare in Bollywood.
    Ppl can make fun of SRK but it takes courage 2 do such roles where u r not leading d proceeding. Some scenes r standout.
    Beautifully written ,n exceptionally executed by gauri shinde.
    It s alia who makes this film a classic.
    Her performance s out of d world.
    Mere pass labz nahi hai uski tariff karne ke liye.
    #Mind blowing
    I love SRK , so may be I sound biased , but I think after #Swades it s d first time he act n looks so real. And he delivers some beautiful lines which makes u smile , makes u feel happy about ur self. BRAVO SIR.
    U r magical. Love .

    Really waiting for more.

    Casting s good , Bgm s excellent , cinematography s mind blowing , but director n editor both can cut down d length of d film a bit. First hour s pretty much lengthy.
    It’s a film which s different , but u can watch it n feel good about it.
    N I want 2 again appreciate alia n other future stars like Ranbir , shahid , ranveer , arjun n others for doing such good movies . Keep it up.

  • decent collections…lets see where the weekend ends up
    expecting something around 30 crs…and lifetime 80+.
    will watch it soon In Shaa Allah

  • @Salmanic 12:37,
    U loggerhead just bcz I respect SRK doesn’t mean I can’t bash him & his fans.U better don’t hide behind Salman’s name.
    And talking about collections.
    RUSTOM did 14 cr in 2000 plus screens with clash with better occupancy than DZ so plz don’t make me troll u & SRK.

  • So, it means the phanka king is officially out of three and akki has replaced his 3rd place in the top three. Three consecutive flops and the next is Braees. Where are those 3.7 billion fans? Can’t help him for an opening of at least a double digits! ha ha ha! Too much fun!

  • N comparing dis movie with some commercial films s ridiculous.
    Sorry but that’s a fact.
    If u have any idea about films then u should not talk about BO No s atleast for this 1.

  • movie was good and no one can deny to admit it . Sometimes collections don’t matter when movie is masterpiece . with limited screens ,demonetization, without any promotion and with limited audience in spite of all these things dear zindagi has managed to earn 8.75 cr on its opening day is really very commendable for a small budget movie. Alia has performed very well and she should be appreciated for dear zindagi

  • @Indicine, why are you shouting from the roof top claiming that it is a niche film? Man, it is a film where the global dhobi king is in a supporting role. And you know he has 3.7 billion fans worldwide. Is this fan base a niche section? Half of the world’s population, man!
    How can his films not appeal to his fan base no matter it is niche or so? It doesn’t appeal, then he doesn’t have that huge audiences and is not the world’s biggest superstar. All are fabricated lies!
    Else, imagine a film of a global superstar doesn’t even exceed 10 crores on its opening day. Indeed, in reality, the star pull of the dhobi king is equal to that of Ayushman that is limited to only niche section.

  • Alia with Shahid: 10cr opening (Udta Punjab).

    Alia with SRK: 8cr opening (Dear Zindegi).

    Too much funnnn!

  • @RangilSingh FYI, BOI also posted 8.75 cr opening day for DZ… now u can understand who needs to learn math actually.. lolwaa

  • Red chills should do manipulation.
    When Rakesh Roshan and Ajay devgan are inflating the figures then why not Red chilis …
