Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan’s sequel to Dabangg breaks the first-day record of its first part

Dabangg 2, the sequel to 2010 Bollywood blockbuster Dabangg has managed to surpass the opening day collections of the original movie. It amassed Rs 21.10 crore in India on the day of its release – largely because it released across a greater number of sccreens.

The movie, starring Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, opened across 2,500 screens Friday against 1,800 for Dabangg. The directorial debut of actor-producer Arbaaz Khan, Dabangg 2 opened to packed houses and managed to rake in Rs 21.10 crore on the opening day itself.

Taran Adarsh said that it is one of the highest opening for any non-holiday release in Bollywood till date. Dabangg 2 surpassed the first day collections of even Akshay Kumar’s Rowdy Rathore, which earned Rs 15 crores. It was a non-holiday release too.

The original Dabangg was directed by Abhinav Kashyap, and it had managed to rake in Rs 14.5 crore on its first day, nationally.

The biggest Bollywood opening grosser as of now is Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath remake that released in early 2012. It raked in Rs 23 crore.
