The pulp entertainer directed by Abhinav Kashyup, starring Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, has set a new benchmark.  The festive season and inimitable star power of the lead actor had audiences queuing outside cinema halls the country over and grossed Rs 15.75 crore on the second day at the box office.

Confirms veteran trade analyst Amod Mehra, “Yes, Dabangg has surpassed the opening collections of 3 Idiots.” While the movie opened to almost 97 per cent occupancy at single screen theatres, it ran into packed houses in several multiplexes across the country.
Dabangg has also surpassed Salman’s previous film records in the Gulf, US and UK and with 14 prints, it grossed 80,000 dollars in Australia on Friday alone making it Salman’s biggest hit overseas.

“Salman has bounced back with renewed vigour. With  Dabangg, he has proved that he has so much to offer to his fans and viewers of Hindi cinema. His star power is the biggest USP of Dabangg. It’s the prime reason why Dabangg is breaking previous records and setting new records and benchmarks. He was the darling of the masses and continues to remain the unstoppable force with Dabangg,” says trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
