Dabangg 2 is all set to create history in India. Rewrite boxoffice records. Set new benchmarks. The latest Salman Khan starrer opened to a thunderous, earth-shattering, unimaginable response across the nation. While the morning shows took off with fervour, the noon shows maintained the pace across the country, despite the fact that the film has opened really wide in India [2250 cinema halls, 3500 + screens].

A slight dip is expected between 3 to 5 pm, since it's a working day, but the business is expected to witness a massive jump from evening onwards. The film is expected to be the biggest opener on a non-holiday, crossing the previous biggest non-holiday opener (Rowdy Rathore) eaps and bounds.

As per early indications, a 22 cr + start is being speculated, but if the evening and night shows are huge, the figure may cross the 25 cr mark, which is out of the world. The weekend collections are also expected to be record-breaking!
