Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt's Dear Zindagi continues to reign in it's second week as well! The film opened it's second week with an astounding Rs 2.25 cr despite competition with Vidya Balan's Kahaani 2. Looks like the winning streak continues on day 9 as well because the film has earned an additional Rs 3.50 cr making it a total of Rs 52.75 cr in domestic market! Just as speculated, the film has entered the 50 crore club triumphantly! Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the statistics of second week, "#DearZindagi shows 55.56% growth on Sat... [Week 2] Fri 2.25 cr, Sat 3.50 cr. Total: ₹ 52.75 cr. India biz."
The film is doing splendidly thanks to good word of mouth. Even in it's first week, the film had raked in a good number of Rs 47 crore at the box office. There were speculations that with Vidya Balan's suspense thriller, Kahaani 2's release, Dear Zindagi's box office numbers may be compromised. However, looks like Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan's magic continues to enthrall fans. Balan's film has opened with a decent Rs 4.25 crore on it's first day. While it is less as compared to Dear Zindagi, which earned about 8.75 cr, the film is said to see a spike in the weekend. Meanwhile, it has been speculated that that DZ will earn 56 cr in it's second weekend.
There's a lot of reasons for Alia and Shah Rukh to celebrate as the film has also entered the 100 crore club with it's gross earnings. Turns out the film managed to rake in a very good number in the overseas market. Sharing this news, Karan Johar congratulated the team. This is Gauri Shinde's first biggest hit. Of course, this is her second film but it has now set a benchmark for all her films! According to trade gurus, this slice of life has surpassed the lifetime collections of Highway, Wazir and English Vinglish as it entered the second week. In fact, it has become the year's 5th highest grosser in the overseas market. So many good news for Alia!
