Will Shah Rukh Khan-Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi AFFECT Vidya Balan’s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh?

Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt‘s Dear Zindagi has ruled the box office since last Friday. The movie has been loved by everyone; you can figure it out by looking at the figures. It has collected Rs 44 crore in 6 days. And even though Dear Zindagi had dipped on the first Monday, the film has managed to steady itself since then. In fact, we expect the film to continue its glorious run during the second weekend too which brings us to the question will the movie affect Vidya Balan‘s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh which is releasing tomorrow?

Yes, the sequel to Vidya Balan’s 2012 hit – Kahaani is all set to release tomorrow. Titled as Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh, it is a new story which promises to be even bigger and more intense than the prequel. Everyone is excited to see the film, but with Dear Zindagi continuing its glorious run, will Vidya Balan’s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh be affected?

We called up our trade expert – Amul Vikas Mohan (Editor of Super Cinema) and he revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY, “No, not really. Dear Zindagi will continue in its own space. Yes, they (Dear Zindagi and Kahaani 2) are competing in the same market space, but I don’t think they will cut into each other’s collections. It’s week two for Dear Zindagi, while it will be week one for Kahaani 2. Also there is a different buzz for Kahaani 2. Dear Zindagi has also been released in a limited screen space, so they might want to push that out or continue to be that in the same number of screens. So it’s a good scenario for both the movies.”

We can’t agree any less. As Amul mentioned, Dear Zindagi had released in just 1200 screens. We are sure Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh can get enough screens to earn well. The sequel factor will also help the movie. And thrillers have done well this year, so everything looks good for Kahaani 2.
