Due to earlier plans of Ayodhya judgement being slated for 24th September, film Anjaana Anjaani, staring Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor, was moved a week ahead. Since it was anyways arriving solo, there were no other releases planned for this week either, hence resulting in a no-show for Bollywood. Also, the decision was made at the nth hour due to which no other film from a later week too couldn't pre-pone its release and utilise the empty space available. All of this meant that for film goers, it was a disheartening moment since there was no new release for two weeks in succession after Dabangg.
However, there is one team that is pretty much jumping with joy and it is that of Dabangg. Biggest of the film makers pray for limited competition next to them on the same Friday. A few fortunate ones manage to arrive solo. It is an aberration when no new film releases in the week after. However, it is pretty much unheard for when a biggie enjoys as many as three weeks of an open run. This is what has happened for Dabangg and no wonder, Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Co. have everything going in it's favour.
The film has now enjoyed three open weeks which means huge moolah continuing to flow in. In fact the film was super strong even in its third weekend as it netted over 10 crores. With the only real competition coming from Nadiadwala production Anjaana Anjaani and The Robot in its fourth week, Dabangg could well stretch itself to reach the 150 crores milestone.
