- Bajrangi Bhaijaan started week #2 on a "healthy note"
- Black Panther is expected to cross $60 million-mark by the weekend
- Bajrangi Bhaijaan has collected Rs 128 crore so far
Is Black Panther a threat for Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which is struggling to beat the box office dominion of previous two Bollywood films - Secret Superstar and Dangal (both starring Aamir Khan)?

Bajrangi Bhaijaan released in India in 2015 and it had collected Rs 184 crore by the end of first week here. The film's lifetime India business is Rs 320 crore. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is the story of Pawan Chaturvedi aka Bajrangi, a Lord Hanuman devotee, who promises to take Munni to her home in Pakistan after she was separated by her parents on their trip to India.
After Secret Superstar and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Irrfan Khan's Hindi Medium (on April 4) will become the third Indian film to open in China this year.
