Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt's fabulous run at the box office for Dear Zindagi continues even as they enter the second week! Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted saying that the film will easily surpass the Rs 50 cr benchmark after today's collections. So far, the film has raked in Rs 49.25 cr as it entered the second week at the box office. "#DearZindagi [Week 2] Fri 2.25 cr. Total: ₹ 49.25 cr. India biz... Will cross ₹ 50 cr mark today [Sat]," stated the trade guru. Earlier Taran did affirm how the fate of the film at the box office would be determined based on it's earnings in the second week.
From the numbers it has minted as on day 8, looks like this film will emerge as Alia's hit! In the first week of Dear Zindagi, the box offcie collections were reported, "#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." You can see that there has been a gradual decrease in terms of the days. But once again, as it enters the second weekend, chances of the film's collection to spike up is very much possible. It is speculated that the film might falter a bit because of Vidya Balan's Kahaani: Durag Rani Singh, that released yesterday. However, the film will easily enter the 50 crores club.
Having released in 1200 screens. with a budget that is not more than 30 cr max, Dear Zindagi 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. Add the fact that this slice of life was a film a lot of us could resonate with, further bringing in more audience. So far, the film is still hanging under the 'average' tag in terms of box office. However, with the numbers that'll come in tomorrow for Saturday, the film may surpass the 50 crore mark easily. One question that does linger in our head is whether Vidya Balan's release will be affected by the good run of Dear Zindagi.
