Dear Zindagi Week 1 Box Office Collections

Dear Zindagi has completed its first week with net box office collections of Rs 47 crore. The trend is decent, but certainly not excellent, which means the second weekend is crucial if the film has to recover costs for distributors.

‘Kahaani 2’ has taken a slow start in the morning on Friday, so the kind of response that the film gets over the weekend, could decide what sort of total ‘Dear Zindagi’ ends up with. If ‘Kahaani 2’ doesn’t find appreciation, ‘Dear Zindagi’ might continue to be the first choice and this might help the film cross the 60 crore mark.

The film is heading towards ‘Semi-Hit’ status, but the perception has already been created that ‘Dear Zindagi’ is a box office success. It has worked with a section of the audience, especially girls who have come out in bigger numbers to watch the film.

It’s Alia Bhatt’s third success of the year after ‘Kapoor & Sons’ (her biggest and possibly only ‘clean hit’), followed by Udta Punjab and Dear Zindagi. In fact, her last film of the year has shown exactly the same trend as her second film (Udta Punjab). Both will finish with similar lifetime totals, with ‘Dear Zindagi’ being the more profitable film for the producers.

It’s a positive for Shah Rukh Khan too as his performance in the film has been liked. It won’t make any difference to the box office prospects of ‘Raees’ because failures like ‘Fan’ or even the underperformance of ‘Dilwale’ never really affect the fan-following of established superstars. His presence has certainly helped ‘Dear Zindagi’ collect more than it otherwise would, but the price that the film was sold was also on the higher side because of SRK.

  • Nice. Not to offend anyone, but a lot of female centric movies get a bit status due to the perception created by the media and mass communication in general. It is all good though…I would love to see the day when a big budget all female film opens to double digit numbers, it seems that Bollywood is slowly but surely moving to that path

  • it seems like indicine isn’t too happy with dz success. a similar feeling i got from their Dhoni articles also. sad

  • Seems it will fail 15crs+ short to LT of Deepika’s Piku(79crs) & Sonam’s Neerja(75crs).

    Despite highly rated on IMDb.
    IMDb ratings:
    Dear Zindagi(8.7)

    Rofol IMDb

  • Indicine ur always worry distributors if its Srk film..

    And always think for hit verdict dat film shud cross higher numbers ..

    Aliya film cross 60 crore means its ckean hit ..and not semihit …

    Love u don.

    waiting for raees

  • Srk now should retire in peace and dignity, he is over and needs to understand that rather than keep forcing himself to audiences.

  • Udta punjab nd dear dadaji collections r ön the same level….still indicine is sayin that presnce of srkay helpd dear dadaji…next joke plz

  • Dear Zindagi has done good business . The trend over the weekdays is not as solid as people expected . 2016 has been the best year for Alia with K&S, UP and DZ . Her performance in all 3 movies were impressive especially in UP . She is making some mature choices as an actress . SRK was really good as Jug delivering a mature performance . The success or failure of K2 will determine the kind of success DZ achieves in its lifetime . For me DZ was pretty average especially the 2nd half was extremely dull . The pace of the film was very slow and the length should have been 100 or 120 minutes . Some dialogues create an impact but some seem to be too heavy and sounds preachy . The execution could have been better . The screenplay was pretty mediocre . Gauri Shinde was just stellar in EV the same cannot be said about DZ . Unlike Ra.One, JTHJ, CE, HNY, Dilwale and Fan some people might love DZ or some people may find it boring . People who have conquered depression will simply love this film . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    i.e 47+25 = 72cr..


  • Why indicine against Dear Zindagi i certainly can’t understand first review and now unnecesary negetivity, before the release of Dangal DZ continue to do well

  • Lifetime will be 60-62 cr approx.
    Verdict – Semihit.
    Movie was good for me.
    It was 3.5/5 for me.
    Without demonetisation it would have touched 70-72 cr.

  • Dear Zindagi need just 13cr for clean Hit status if it collect 20cr plus from now then get super hit verdict why indicine is so negetive towards DZ

  • Sow how come perception makes it a hit if its not financially hit
    Heights of Licking..
    Gauri Shinde blahh blahh
    Alia Bhatt blah blahhh
    SRK blahh blahh
    Struggling to get Hit Status Financially but “Perception” makes it a Hit

  • happy new year 200 cr
    dilwale 147 cr
    fan 85 cr
    dear zindagi 47 cr
    raees ??????
    my predication is 80 cr

    bajrangi bhaijaan 320 cr
    prdp 220 cr
    sultan 300 cr
    tube light 300cr
    tzh 300 cr

    dhoom 3 280 cr
    pk 340 cr
    dangal 300

    in comparison to other khans his films are doing very low buiseness in India very sad but this true

  • Indicine u gave an answer ‘it was sold on higher price because of srk presence but vice versa the buyer was expecting the box office boost however subsequently it sanked irrespective presence of Global icon srk. The buyer wouldn’t have paid that big moolah only for alia. the fact is makers sells it in srk name but spectator srk’s fan are twisting the fact and saying it as alia’s movie. If it was over 100 cr now they would have bashed all other actor fan by now. After seeing this pauper collection chameleon fans are waiting for raees trailer and throwing 300cr .

  • Finally less than 55 Crore. So biggest flop srk career even bigger flop than Fan.

    Dear Zindagi 55 Cr which is lesser than Fan 84 Cr. Srk is giving flop after flops.

    Even God can’t save SRK & RAEES from complete washout
    KAABIL All Time Blockbuster

  • @Indicine

    Nowadays all your articles will have some negativity towards SRK..I am observing it from Dilwale onwards…Dont you think you have to analyse things little more better? Salman and Aamir movies are becoming huge hits only becoz of Solo holiday releases. Nothing else. Try to change the negativity towards SRK

  • @Rohinene this is called the Dirty Game. So even IMDB rating became FAKE.

    before some years ago or around a decade ago, films are hardly get 4 stars. One which got it was a really a good films at least. Even 5? became every CRAPPIEST Film story now.

    Don’t believe them because they all are the players or paid people of Dirty Game. These people are part of Dirty Game.

  • Udta Punjab had more screens than Dear Zindagi

    btw criminal’s Yuvvraj was released with 1100 screens and ended up in 17cr LT while Dear Zindagi collected 20cr in two days.
