In India, "Dilwale" box office collection has slowed down. Unlike "Bajirao Mastani", the collection of "Dilwale" remained on the lower side on its second Friday. "Dilwale" collected just Rs 8.11 crore on its second Friday, despite it being a holiday across the country. The eight-day box office income of "Dilwale" now stands at Rs 110.76 crore.
"#Dilwale [Week 2] Fri 8.11 cr [Christmas holiday]. Total: ₹ 110.76 cr. India biz. The tables have turned. #BajiraoMastani leads, #Dilwale slows. Gap between the total narrows. #BajiraoMastani to overtake soon. India biz (sic)," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
With "Dilwale", Varun Dhawan has shattered the records of his highest grosser "ABCD 2". "Dilwale" is now Varun's highest grosser and the second film to cross Rs 100 crore. Rohit Shetty's directorial is also the 29th-highest grosser of all time. The film, which is the fourth highest earner of 2015, is now aiming to beat the record of "Tanu Weds Manu Returns".
The romantic action movie starring Shah Rukh and Kajol also features Varun and Kriti Sanon in lead roles. The film released on 18 December worldwide along with Ranveer Singh's "Bajirao Mastani".
