The film which released on 18th opened its advance booking on 13th, which lead the makers to mint a advance of Rs 11 crores! 50% of the booking was made for Friday shows and the rest for Saturday, Sunday.
Dilwale released in UAE on Thursday and the film had record breaking opening day collection of $900,000! Taran Adarsh reported the overseas collection, "#Dilwale opens to IMPRESSIVE numbers Overseas. Fri total: $ 3.4 million [₹ 22.61 cr]. SUPER!". The amount grossed by Dilwale is ahead of Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone's Bajirao Mastani by 400 per cent.
Rohit Shetty directorial opened to 70% occupancy all over while Bajirao Mastani had an extremely slow start of just 30% occupancy. "#Dilwale has opened full houses in overseas n #BajiraoMastani has opened just 25-30% so it's big mistake of Eros to release it on same day," Kamaal R Khan tweeted.
While Bajirao Mastani is doing well in Maharashtra, Dilwale Box Office collection is leading in East Punjab, Nizam, Andhra, Mysore, Gujarat, Mumbai, Pune and East India with huge margin.
Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh revealed, "‘Dilwale' has opened better. It is too early to give a number now but it is in the range of very good to excellent. ‘Bajirao Mastani' is slightly slow and is within the range of ordinary to good."
The film grossed Rs 21 crores on its opening day at domestic market but it could not beat Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo opening day collection of Rs 40.35 crores.
The film has grossed double of Bajirao Mastani which minted Rs 12.80 crores and therefore Dilwale has emerged as the winner in this clash! The second day collection too has been great for Dilwale and owing to the weekend holidays, the makers will easily make more than the opening day amount.
