Don 2 Sunday Update

After two good days, Don 2 had a fantastic Sunday, which according to early estimates is around 18 crores (could be more). We contacted a few multiplexes late on Sunday and almost every late-evening, night shows in Mumbai, New Delhi, Noida, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mangalore were housefull. Infact, many had to return home disappointing as several shows were sold-out in advance.

This is a clear sign that the film has been liked by it’s target audience. Farhan Akhtar directed films have always under-performed at smaller single-screen dominated centers and it’s pretty much the same with Don 2.

Moving on, it’ll be interesting to see how Don 2 holds up on Monday. If it remains steady and trends similar to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, it’ll end it’s run as one of the biggest hits of 2011. In case it drops heavily, then 100 crores could prove to be difficult.

The official overseas collections coming up soon. Stay tuned for more on Don 2.

    • Not if it drops like Ra One, which benefitted due to the 5-day weekend and barely did anything after that. But Don 2 is a good film, so yes.. it should easily cross the 100 crore mark :)

  • Great news as it was expected. Now its very important for don 2 to sustain good in weekdays nd i m pretty confident it will. Inshaallah.

    • @Haroon, these are Hindi version collections only. So, if you include all versions, when the final collections come, it could be quite close to the Dabangg weekend, if not more.

  • Don 2 will easily cross 100 cr mark…. And the big thing is that next weekend is also festive as new year celebration…. So next week also it will maintain momentum and will easily cross 100 cr mark….
    And the best thing is that the movie is fantastic…great performance by king khan, which will bring him best actor award this year also…
    So the bottom kind king srk rules both boxoffice and million hearts…

  • Bodyguard ka record srk ka baap v tod nhi sakta hai. Aarha hai king EK THA TIGER leke ab nye record bnayega this EID.

  • @jani

    I’ll guarantee your EK THA TIGER will NOT be even a hit.

    Sallu lallu can only do remakes of blockbuster tamil telugu mallu movies.

    Ek Tha Tiger is untested and original unlike ready, wanted, bodyguard. It will flop like VEER & YUVRAJ

    Only way Sallu Lallu can deliver a BB is by south directors remaking their regional BB in Hindi.

  • don 2 is soo goood! it has to be realllllyyyy hit overseas because i went to see it yeasterday and the theatre has around 300-500 seats and it was all sold out! me and my family could barely get seats, and we got ot so good seats but the film was soooooooo ******* awesome! everyone should watch it! the whole theatre was going crazy and everyone was whistlig and clapping during the film! it has been extremely liked overseas! my rating would be 4.5/5!

  • Kabir khan is a flop director. never made a single hit movie

    Ek Tha Tiger will never had action fistfights as good as Don-2. Sallu is too bulky, muscular & non-agile. ETT can try hard to be Bourne movies but it will have lot more slow mos fights which are now boring.

    ETT also dont have desi indian setting no masala. its guaranteed FLOP.

  • wooow gud figure..1st day-15cr 2nd-16cr 3rd-18cr total 49cr dabang weekend record is gone ;) tnx indicine for bringing such gr8 news im very happy with sunday good jump..

  • @khan
    SRK refused to star EK THE TIGER , so this is another reason which proves you that EK THE TIGER is surely big flopppp

  • First day: 15.3 crore
    second day: 16 crore ( some sources 18 crore)
    third day: 19-20 as taran adash posted.
    Also DON2 creates many records in oversease.

  • @indicine
    can you tell me the first salman khan’s movie is releasing next year? Is ek the tiger or another one?

  • Without promotion bodyguard made 21cr on first day…..
    And if he even promote ek tha tiger for 15 days only(not like srk promting 6 months) it will make nearly 25-28cr first day….

  • People on many website are comparing Ra.one and Don 2 with Bodyguard… they have 3D and Dubbed versions with more no. of screen and high ticket rate and mostly huge promotion but Salman Khan do not need any extra to make his Film hit at the Box office. He alone is a Hurricane !

  • easy calculation..ra1 not like 90% audience even crazy srk fan despite collection 125c in india…but don 2 like 99% audience and 80% super duper like…so lifetime don2 125c+50c(repeat value)=175c in india….and overseas don2 continue run amazing and break mnik best weekened record which is 32-36c…so don2 overseas lifetime must be 100c…..don2 is going to worldwide all time blockbluster…
