- 'Dabangg 3' was joined by 'Good Newwz' last Friday
- 'Dabangg 3' made Rs 4.50 on Sunday
- The numbers are expected to improve on New Years
Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 has raked in a score of Rs 137.80 crore in 10 days at the theatres, wrote trade analyst Taran Adarsh. However, he added that the numbers of the Salman Khan cop drama have dipped in the second week primarily because of the arrival of a new film - Akshay Kumar's Good Newwz. According to Mr Adarsh, Dabangg 3 is expected to perform better on the New Year holiday. "Dabangg 3 goes down in Week 2... Biz at multiplexes hit due to Good Newwz... Single screens better, not great... Might benefit due to New Year celebrations... [Week 2] Fri 3.50 cr, Sat 3.25 cr, Sun 4.50 cr. Total: Rs 137.80 cr. India biz. Note: All versions."
Last week, Taran Adarsh had highlighted that the multi-starrer Good Newwz had the potential to "make a dent" in Dabangg 3's performance in theatres. Good Newwz took over the box office game from Dabangg 3 on December 27. "Dabangg 3 also needs to sustain *after Week 1*, since it faces a new, big opponent [Good Newwz], which is expected to make a dent in its screens, shows and most importantly, market share... New Year holidays ahead should prove advantageous," Mr Adarsh had written.
#Dabangg3 collects in double digits on Day 4... Not performing at optimum levels... Needs to recover lost ground today [evening onwards] + tomorrow [#Christmas]... Fri 24.50 cr, Sat 24.75 cr, Sun 31.90 cr, Mon 10.70 cr. Total: Rs 91.85 cr. #India biz. Note: All versions. #Dabangg3 also needs to sustain *after Week 1*, since it faces a new, big opponent [#GoodNewwz], which is expected to make a dent in its screens, shows and most importantly, market share... #NewYear holidays ahead should prove advantageous.
Directed by Raj Mehta Good Newwz stars Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani and has recorded a box office score of Rs 64.99 in three days.
Revised: Sun 25.65 cr. Total: 64.99 cr... Mon numbers should be strong at multiplexes... #NewYear celebrations will boost biz on Tue [31 Dec 2019] and Wed [1 Jan 2020]... Should cross 100 cr before Week 1 concludes.- taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) December 30, 2019
