Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 currently stands with the grand total of around Rs 91 crore and will enter the Rs 100 crore club today at the ticket windows, which means it will hit the century in 5 days at the box office. With this, Dabangg 3 will become the third-fastest entrant of the year to enter the Rs 100 crore club after War and Bharat. It will equal this record with Kabir Singh, Mission Mangal and Housefull 4, who also took 5 days to cross the Rs 100 crore mark.

Dabangg 3 could have achieved the milestone of Rs 100 crore in 3 or 4 days but due to CAA Protests, the collections got affected at the ticket windows. Apart from the anti-CAA stir, there are reports that the film got leaked on online platforms, which has also affected its business. "I don't know since how long we are urging the audience not to watch pirated films because it affects our industry in a negative way," said Sonakshi Sinha, while interacting with the media at a Christmas celebration event with underprivileged kids of Angel Xpress Foundation.
On the nationwide protests against CAA, Sonakshi said: "I am with the people of this country. I feel the way people are protesting on streets, you can't snatch that right from them. I am very proud of the people who have come out and voiced their opinion. I am with them." On why several A-list Bollywood actors have avoided expressing views on CAA, she said: "I think whoever wants to voice (an opinion) will voice, and whoever doesn't want, will not. After all, that is also their right."
But are the bigwigs of Bollywood scared to openly air their views? "I think they don't feel scared, but when they (celebrities) hit the streets, then the entire focus shifts on them. We know media cameras start following them, and because of that other people might feel ignored. If people can understand that they are also a part of the crowd, then they would definitely come out," she said.
'Dabangg 3' is directed by Prabhudeva and produced by Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan. Anyway, have you watched the film? Tweet to us @bollywod_life.
