The film has performed very well in the Arab nation...
People in United Arab Emirates were the first ones to watch Dilwale on December 17 and the film has literally left them floored. Dilwale has opened very well in the country and it seems people are loving the film already. On top of this, Dilwale has done better than even Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that had taken the whole world by storm yesterday. Shah Rukh Khan's film also CRUSHED Ranveer Singh's Bajirao Mastani in UAE. It also earned the highest collections for a Hindi film in UAE till date.
As trade analyst, Komal Nahata reveals, "#Dilwale 1st day in UAE best ever for Hindi film, approx $900,000 (estimate). Ahead of Star Wars by 60% and #BajiraoMastani by around 400%." The film has approximately earned Rs 5.96 crore in UAE itself, which is a HUGE number. The whole cast of the film had visited Dubai to promote Dilwale and I guess they are reaping the reward of the visit. Shah Rukh Khan is also very popular in UAE, especially Dubai and this has helped the film considerably.
In India as well, it seems Dilwale is going to edge out Bajirao Mastani as the occupancy of the former (85-95 per cent) was greater than the latter (65-75 per cent) throughout the first day. Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases next week in India. Dilwale has received mixed reviews as compared to Bajirao Mastani, however it is still performing better. Keep a tab on this space as we get more update about the box office collections of Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani.
