Dabangg 2 is almost certain to have a record opening. It may not have the opening day record as that depends on whether that day is holiday but over the three day period which is the best judge for an opening it will set a new high looking at the craze.
The difference on a non holiday is that today multiplexes have multiple shows and it is difficult to fill all shows to capacities especially in the metros while on a holiday it is possible. The first day single screen business will be similar to Ek Tha Tiger which opened on Independence Day holiday as single screens audiences have that craze to catch a film like Dabangg 2 on first day, holiday or no holiday.
There is most likely to be a shortfall in multiplexes on day one compared to Ek Tha Tiger as huge chunk of multiplex going audience has work commitments but if there is any film that can close the gap on a holiday and working day, it is Dabangg 2.
Till date no film has crossed 15 crore nett on an opening day which was not a holiday while the biggest holiday opening day is 31 crore nett which is huge 16 crore nett gap.
Dabangg 2 will cruise past 15 crore nett but the real question is can it go towards the 30 crore nett mark and make that holiday factor less important.
