The sequel to the 2010 hit Dabangg, Dabangg 2 has proved to be the highest grosser for the opening day. The film has earned the highest amount – Rs. 21.10 crores to be exact. However, the reason is that it has got more screens than Dabangg should also be mentioned. Dabangg 2 was released across 2500 screens as against 1800 screens for its prequel.
Though it got more screens, it should be taken into account that the film has been released on a working day – a non-holiday, as they call it. As usual Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha are in the lead. The film is directed by Arbaaz Khan, who is already an actor and a producer.
As far as Dabangg is concerned, it had earned Rs. 14.5 crores on its first day. Dabangg 2 crossed the mark set by Akshay Kumar starrer Rowdy Rathore. The film had grossed Rs. 15 crores. Both Rowdy Rathore and Dabangg 2 were released on non-holiday.
Experts in the field feel that this film too will cross the Rs. 100-crore mark.
