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.
