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!

"We have our third film ready and it will go back and show how Chulbul Pandey becomes Chulbul Pandey. If the second one becomes a hit, we can go to the third one, which is actually the first one. So Dabangg 3 will be a prequel," said Salman, who plays a corrupt, but kind-hearted cop in the movie. FULL STORY
Salman Khan to enter the 200 crore club with Dabangg 2?

"100 crore is passe now, not just for him but every superstar worth his salt. Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn and now even Ranbir Kapoor has cracked it. Aamir anyway started it all. So for how long can one continue to bask in the glory of something which is fast becoming a trend and is almost a rule than being an exception. The new 'mantra' is 200 crore. Only Aamir is sitting pretty there after 3 Idiots. Now Salman is the one who can take a possible shot at that mark", comments an insider. READ MORE
