Shahrukh Khan's much-hyped movie Don 2 has got a good opening at the Box Office in India. The action thriller film has grossed approximately Rs 48.39 crore net at the collection centres in the first weekend. But its business is not up to the mark when compared to its volume of release across the country.
Don 2 opened to huge response at multiplexes and an average occupancy at single screens all over India on Friday, December 23. The movie collected Rs 15.3 crore at Box Office on the first day from three versions like Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. With this collection, the film became the third highest opening day grosser and the highest opening day grosser ever on a non-holiday Friday.
The business of Don 2 was expected to improve, but it fell down on Saturday. The Shahrukh-Priyanka starrer collected Rs 15.09 crore at Box Office on its second day. The film managed to grow around 20-25% on its third day with its collection crossing more than Rs 18 crore net. But the movie has failed to cross Rs 50 crore mark in the first weekend.
However, the volume of theatrical release of Don 2, which graced 3,103 screens across the country, is bigger than the biggest releases of year 2011 like Ra.One and Bodyguard. But its collection is not even half of what Ra.One and Bodyguard have earned. One reason for it is that the latter movies had five-day weekend, while Don 2 had non-holiday three-day weekend. But Don 2 could have performed even better at the Box Office, but it has failed at the collection centres.
