Salman Khan's Dabangg collected approx. Rs. 6.75 cr. nett
on Wednesday, taking its 6-day total to approx. Rs. 74 cr. to Rs.
74.5 cr. nett. The film continues to perform exceedingly well at
single screens, while multiplexes have shown the usual drops on
weekdays. Like this writer pointed out yesterday, the first week
distributors' share will be on the higher side [approx. Rs. 50 cr.
or in that range] since the rentals at single screens are as low at
15% to 20% to 30% and the distributors' share, therefore, will be
85%, 80% or 70%, depending on the property and location.
3 Idiots had collected Rs. 79.55 cr. nett in Week 1
[including Thursday previews] and Dabangg is likely to cross this
figure in Week 1, at the rate it's faring.
