Salman Khan starrer and much awaited Dabangg 3 took a good start across India on its first day which was the highest opening figure of the Dabangg franchise.
2018 might not be a great year for Salman Khan as his most expensive film, Race 3, fizzed out at the box office. There was lot of expectations from EID 2019 release, Bharat but the action drama earned below average reviews and it ended at the box office with disasspointing results, collecting Rs 212 crore. However, Salman Khan has one reason to smile as the advance booking for Prabhu Deva directed Dabangg 3 is setting the cash register on fire as it is nearing the big release on 20th December. Salman Khan re-unites with Prabhu Deva for their second collaboration after giving super hit film like Wanted and the expectation is huge from Dabangg 3 as it seems to have right ingredient to set the adrenaline rush pumping up and with release date before Christmas, it will be icing on the cake.
The trailer of Dabangg 3 was well-liked by the fans of Bhai while the advance booking report for Dabangg 3 picked up on Wednesday and Thursday. The early reviews have been encouraging from both critics and audience (BookyMyShow.com) but due to the CAA bill protest across the country, the collections were majorly hit, especially in Delhi-NCR region.
Dabangg 3 has opened somewhere between 30-40 % in the morning shows from 5000+ screens across India. The earnings did not pick up later in the evening and night shows. As per early estimates, the first day collections of Dabangg 3 should fall between Rs 22-24 crore and will break the record of Dabangg (Rs 14 crore) and Dabangg 2 (Rs 19.25 crore) but might not come close to Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju which holds the record for the highest opening film for a Non-Holiday release.
Dabangg 3 opening day will be 5th highest opening of 2019 after War, Bharat, Mission Mangal and Saaho but ahead of Kabir Singh and Kesari.
The action-drama also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Saiee Manjrekar and Sudeep in lead roles and will be produced by Arbaaz Khan. The budget of Dabangg 3 is Rs 125 crore.
