Krrish 3 vs Dabangg 2: Box Office Comparison


In just 6 days since its theatrical
release, Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish 3
needs just Rs 2.52 crore to go past
the lifetime collections of Salman
Khan ’s Christmas blockbuster
Dabangg 2 .
Krrish 3 vs Dabangg 2
Some factors that worked in favour
or went against the two films.
Both Krrish 3 and Dabangg 2
were sequels to tremendously
successful films. Like Salman’s
Chulbul Pandey, Krrish and
Rohit Mehra were hugely
popular with audiences across
all age groups.
D2′s music was popular with
the masses especially Kareena
Kapoor’s ‘Fevicol Se’. Rajesh
Roshan’s outdated compositions
were universally thrashed.
While Hrithik commands a
larger audience / fan base in
urban cities, Salman is huge
with the masses. Surprisingly
though, Dabangg 2 under-
performed at smaller centres
and Krrish 3 hasn’t sustained
too well in major metro cities!
Business of Dabangg 2 in the
North Indian circuits was
affected due to severe cold. The
dill pre-Diwali phase meant that
the first weekend business of
Krrish 3 was slightly below
trade expectations (at least the
exhibitors weren’t too happy in
the first 3 days, all that
changed on Monday though).
Comparative numbers..
Dabangg 2 – 3500 screens,
Krrish 3 – 3700 screens (4050
including Tamil and Telugu)
Hindi version weekend –
Dabangg 2: 65 crore – Krrish 3:
63.7 crore
Weekend including all versions
– Dabangg 2: 65 crore – Krrish
3: 72.7 crore
First week – Dabangg 2: 106.5
crore – Krrish 3: 165 crore
expected (in 6 days 152.98 cr)
