Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2 starring Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta has opened to a fantastic response all over India. The opening is not as huge as Ra One, but the reports from the morning shows are good.
Considering the fact that the pre-release promotion was low-key and the music wasn’t a big hit like some of the other big-grossers this year, the credit for the opening goes entirely to the star-power of Shahrukh Khan.
The afternoon and evening shows of Ra One were affected by the Diwali festivities around the country. But with Don 2, the collections are expected to remain rock-steady throughout the day.
We expect the Day 1 collections to be more than Ra One (15 crores), but could fall short of Bodyguard’s historic start (21 crores). Comparisons would be unfair though, with today being a working-day, unlike Bodyguard which released on a holiday (EID).
Early weekend predictions
- Day 1 – 17 crores (all versions)
- Day 2 – 17.5 crores
- Day 3 – 21 crores
- Weekend – about 56 crores (which would be break the 3-day weekend record held by Dabangg)
