Dabangg to Dabangg 3 – Day 1715

By 23 December, 2019Uncategorized

Show business is a cruel world, the box-office makes and breaks stars every Friday and nobody can predict which way the wind will blow. Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat was slow to pick up while rising superstar Kartik Aryan had everyone swooning over him in Pati Patni aur Woh.

 

I was surprised by the collections of the film because in my opinion, adultery was an issue in the 70s but not any longer but going by the audience reactions, they seem to enjoy the marital story or is it just an attraction for budding superstar Kartik Aryan, I believe it is the latter.

 

Yash Raj Films’ Mardani 2 presenting bahurani Rani Mukherji got fewer theatres than expected, is it because it is a woman oriented film or is it because of Jumanji got more eyeballs or because the box-office was getting ready for Saman Khan’s Dabangg 3.

 

A decade ago when Khan launched Dabangg produced by brother Arbaaz Khan and directed by Abhinav Kashyap none of them had imagined that the film was going to be a grosser but the casting, music, dialogue, Malaika Arora’s ‘Munni badnaam hui…’ everything turned out to be magical. Made on a budget of 420 billion the film earned 2.19 billion.
