Arbaaz Khan's first directorial venture Dabangg 2, a sequel to his previous production Dabangg, has seen a drop in its collection at the Indian Box Office on Saturday.

Its collection was far lower than that of Independence day release Ek The Tiger, but the romantic action movie has become the biggest opener of non-holiday Friday, beating the previous of record of Rowdy Rathore.
The business of Dabangg 2 was expected to see a big jump on Saturday, but instead of going up, the movie witnessed a dip of 10 percent in its collection. The Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer has collected Rs 19.06 crores at the desi Box Office on the second day, taking its two day total to Rs 40.16 crores nett.
Dabangg 2 has been doing a record breaking collection in North India. Traded expert Taran Adarsh tweeted, "INDIA: #Dabangg2 CP Fri 1.12 cr, Sat 90.50 lacs ... CI Fri 89 lacs, Sat 69 lacs ... Rajasthan Fri 1.26 cr, Sat 96 lacs." He added, "#Dabangg2 Sat *estimates* around 17 cr to 18 cr nett."
However, Dabangg 2 is expected to have a big jump in its collection at the domestic Box Office on Sunday. Trade experts say that the movie would cross Rs 50 crore mark in the first weekend. Stay locked to this space to read its latest collection updates.
