Finally the week of Salman Khan VS Akshay Kumar is here & both Dabangg 3, Good Newwz are going neck to neck at the box office. Both have a contrastingly different target audience but they will prove to be a problem for each other. The film which will have comparatively good word of mouth will get more screens next week and then sustain it until Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior & Chhapaak.
Salman Khan was recently asked about the comparatively lower opening day of Good Newwz in front of Dabangg 3. He said, ”What? What is so good at that? Akki’s (Akshay Kumar) film should do better than that of mine.”
He also added, “I would have been the happiest if Akki’s film could have opened with bigger numbers than that of ours but this is also good. I believe that it is not just about my film or Akki’s or Shah Rukh’s film. I say all of our films should get a bigger opening and earn a lot of money because it is good for our film industry. Yes, it is less but it is not a bad opening at all, it is a damn good opening considering the present situation of our country.”
Dabangg 3 has minted 126 crores at the box office and is continuing its average run at the box office. Average because the expectations were high and it hasn’t earned as per them.
