Dear Zindagi continues its glorious run at the box office. After spending one whole week at the box office, the film has earned a spectacular 47 crore, which proves that this Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer is a huge hit. Taran Adarsh, Trade Analyst, shared the figures on Twitter saying, “#DearZindagi has a good Week 1… Fri 8.75 cr, Sat 11.25 cr, Sun 12.50 cr, Mon 4.25 cr, Tue 4 cr, Wed 3.25 cr, Thu 3 cr. Total: ₹ 47 cr.” (Also read: Will Shah Rukh Khan-Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi AFFECT Vidya Balan’s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh?)
Adarsh also mentioned how the second week will be crucial for the film as it will decide how much the film will earn eventually. These are fantastic numbers for a film that was released in 1200 screens. Plus the budget of the film is not more than 30 cr max which means it has already earned profits for its makers. These numbers will help the filmmakers realise that low budgeted films should be the future. It keeps you afloat even if it earns slowly and steadily.

Dear Zindagi has turned everyone its fan. If Shah Rukh Khan’s shrink act made girls sigh heavily, Alia Bhatt’s performance was refreshing. The best part about this film is it has kept in mind the sensibilities of the urban youth. How life and love make things pretty complicated and Alia has done a fab job in expressing those emotions. It’s heartening to see Shah Rukh Khan throw his weight behind such a small film. It isn’t the first time he has produced a film with youngsters. There was Student Of The Year and Always Kabhi Kabhi as well. But he wasn’t part of the proceedings on screen. Here, he becomes one of the best parts of the film. Highly commendable we must say.
The film has already achieved a few feats in its wake like SRK trumping Rajinikanth’s Kabali in Hindi, beating Neerja’s first week collection and more such achievements. And looks like it is poised for more.
