Dabangg 2 was released on December 21, so, by just 10 days of its release the film has collected 127 cr nett plus and now film is looking forward to capitalise on the New Year holiday.
Trade experts predict that if the film could gross 30-33 cr in the next 5 days, the film could beat 2nd week record.
The predictions say the film would collect 145 cr nett at the end of the second week and a good collection on its 3rd week would take the film close to 160 cr nett. Although there are 4-5 Bollywood releases and a couple from Hollywood, Salman starrer will dominate till 11th January.
