Dunki Box Office Collection
Dunki starring Shah Rukh Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Taapsee Pannu, and Boman Irani in main roles made a promising start at the box office. The movie churned out a business of Rs. 28 crores on ticket windows and appears to be a good beginning being a social drama packed with a sprinkle of humor to allure the audiences.
Furthermore, the movie’s subject is also interesting and holds the value to grab the attention of the cinemagoers. Rajkumar Hirani’s story and Shah Rukh Khan’s acting as a protagonist took the audiences to theaters in larger quantities.

It was also reported that the film got an occupancy of 25% on Friday (the second day of the movie). Prabhas starrer Salaar has affected the business of Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki at the box office. According to early estimates, Dunki is set to earn approximately 14 crore on its second day.
If compared to Shah Rukh Khan’s previous releases of 2023, Dunki’s earnings on day one turned out to be lower than both Pathaan and Jawan. Salaar has performed brilliantly at the domestic box office.
As per the early estimates, Dunki is set to earn over 14 crores on its second day. The movie needs to maintain its momentum to get good earnings on its first weekend collections. There is no doubt the movie has the potential to grow at the B.O. with Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani on its back. Salaar is undoubtedly a big competition.
