Shah Rukh Khan’s much-anticipated Dunki has been weaving its magic on the silver screen, and the long Christmas weekend proved to be a welcome boost for the box office. While the opening day saw a respectable Rs 29.2 crore, the initial dip on Day 2 (Rs 20.12 crore) had some wondering if the journey would falter.
But Dunki, much like its protagonist, is a film of resilience. Saturday witnessed a delightful upward swing to Rs 25.61 crore, and Sunday saw the film soar past its opening day mark, raking in an impressive Rs 30.7 crore. This momentum continued even on Christmas Day, amidst stiff competition from Prabhas’ Salaar, with collections holding strong at an estimated Rs 22.50 crore (as per Sacnilk).
Dunki’s Christmas cheer isn’t just about numbers; it’s about the joy it’s bringing to audiences. The heartwarming story of an unlikely friendship, coupled with Shah Rukh Khan’s signature charm, seems to be resonating with moviegoers. Social media is abuzz with positive reviews, praising the film’s humor, emotional depth, and Khan’s performance.
Red Chillies Entertainment, the film’s production house, shared that Dunki’s worldwide box office gross already stands at a staggering Rs 211.13 crore after just four days. With Christmas cheer still bubbling and positive word-of-mouth spreading like wildfire, the Rs 250 crore mark appears well within reach.
Dunki’s success isn’t just about numbers; it’s about reigniting the box office fire at a crucial time for Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan, the undisputed king of romance, has once again proven his box office prowess, reminding everyone why he’s been crowned the Badshah of Bollywood.
So, grab your popcorn and settle in, for Dunki’s box office dance is far from over. With the holiday season and positive buzz on its side, the film seems poised to conquer more hearts and break more records.
