Hindi movie Dabangg 2, which has been directed by debutant Arbaaz Khan, has continued to rock at the Indian Box Office in the second weekend. The Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer has collected Rs 20.5 crores nett at the domestic collection centres, taking its 10 day total to Rs 127.78 crores. With this, the romantic action film has once again topped the business chart in the country.
Since there were no big releases this weekend, Dabangg 2 was expected to do very well again in the second weekend too. But the movie, which had collected Rs 65 crores in the first weekend, has witnessed almost 65% dip in its business over this weekend. Trade experts say that its collection is not upto the expectations.
Despite facing tough time from Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, Salman Khan's previous release Ek Tha Tiger (ETT) had collected Rs 21 crores in the second weekend. Whereas Dabangg 2, which was released in more screens than ETT, was expected to collect nearly 30 crores in the second weekend, but is has just raked in Rs 21 crores. Its break up is Rs 5 cr on Fri, Rs 7 cr on Sat and Rs 9 cr on Sun.
However, Dabangg 2 has collected Rs 127.78 crores at the domestic Box Office and approximately Rs 38.49 crores overseas in the second weekend. The Salman and Sonakshi movie has raked in Rs 166.27 crores at the worldwide Box Office. It should be seen whether it will be able to cross Rs 200 crore mark.
