No one can beat the Dabangg Khan. He's a man who's constantly competing with himself.
After making a whopping 66 crore in its opening weekend, Dabangg 2 is still going strong.
On Monday, the film garnered roughly 12 crore nett, and broke the record of the highest non holiday Monday collection of all time. Funnily, the previous record for the same was held by Dabangg back in 2010 with 10.75 crore nett. The highest Monday collection is held by Ek Tha Tiger, but that was a holiday for Eid.
The film had an advantage with a midweek holiday in the form of Christmas on Tuesday. The film made a whopping 16 crore nett roughly on Christmas. It was given competition by the India vs Pakistan cricket match, and may have hindered on some of the collections thus. The film could have made roughly 2 crore more. This brings it at par with the collections of Ek Tha Tiger that it made on Tuesday, which was a regional holiday for the latter. Overall, it is merely a measly 6 crore behind Ek Tha Tiger in first 5 day collections. Additionally, Dabangg 2 has now made records in many provinces.
This brings the first five day collection of Dabangg 2 to a good 94 crore nett.
The next two days are the real test for the film, and how steady it remains will determine its lifetime business. However, with festivities continuing on till after New Year, and no major release till the 4th of January 2013, the film should continue making a steady profit and easily manage to get into the 100 crore club.
