[tps_footer]Bollywood film ‘Dilwale’ starring Shah Rukh Khan has finished its first weekend run at the box office making records worldwide. The film had opened well on Friday with an occupancy rate of 65% despite the clash with ‘Bajirao Mastani‘. After opening to a good start on Friday the film experienced a drop on Saturday. The Sunday collections showed good growth of around 15-20%. The first weekend collection of ‘Dilwale’ is around Rs. 64 crores net approx (Rs. 640 million).
‘Dilwale’ got a collection of Rs. 21.55 crores net approx (Rs. 215 million) on its first day which is a very good number despite the clash with ‘Bajirao Mastani’. On the second day there was a drop in collection as the film got Rs 19.60 crores net approx (Rs. 196 million). The film collected Rs. 23 crores net approx on Sunday making the current total to Rs. 64 crores net approx after its first weekend. The film has however achieved a milestone in terms of its worldwide weekend business.
The initial two days performance was affected due to the protests and cancelled shows. The same was relatively less on third day thus boosting the performance on Sunday. The film performed well country wide except less than expected performance in Delhi/UP side. Due to the Dilwale VS Bajirao Mastani clash the films had to share their business and if the same did not occur, the collections would have been better.
‘Dilwale’ starring Shah Rukh Khan has crossed the 100 crore mark in 3 days in its worldwide collections. ‘Dilwale’ has collected Rs. 145-150 crores net approx worldwide in its first week itself achieving the milestone of crossing 100 crores in its initial three days itself. The film has got itself a position in the best opening weekend worldwide list of 2015 by gaining the third position after ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo‘. ‘Dilwale’ is now heading towards the 200 crore mark individually.[/tps_footer]
