Dabangg 3 Box Office Prediction: Salman Khan Film To Earn 35+ Crore On Day 1

Dabangg 3 box office prediction: Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 is all set for a blazing opening, expected to earn around Rs 35 crore on its opening day.

Salman Khan is all ready to set the box office on fire. One of his most anticipated films ‘Dabangg 3’ is releasing on 20 Dec 2019. Directed by Prabhu Deva, Dabangg 3 also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Sudeep, Saiee Manjrekar, Arbaaz Khan, and Mahie Gill in the key roles.

It is the third instalment of the Dabangg film franchise. The expectations are huge from Dabangg 3 as the previous two films of the franchise were blockbuster at the box office. Let’s have a detailed look at Dabangg 3 box office prediction.

Dabangg 3 Box Office Prediction: Positives and Negatives


Salman Khan: Salman Khan is the king of Bollywood box office. There is no one close to him as far as box office numbers are concerned. He has a huge fan following and with a film like Dabangg 3 you can always expect his fans to throng to theatres in big number. Moreover, Salman Khan as Chulbul Pandey is one of the most loved characters in Bollywood.

Franchise factor: Dabangg 3 is the third instalment of Dabangg film franchise. The previous two films were huge hits. In fact, Dabangg released on Eid 2010 was a career-changing film for Salman. It was his first 100 crore grosser. Since then every Salman film has crossed 100 crore mark at the Indian box office.

Big release: Dabangg 3 is releasing on around 5000 screens in India. It will be one of the widest Bollywood releases of all time. A wide release during the Christmas holidays will be a big factor at the box office.


Flop songs and average trailer: The expectations from the film are high. However, the trailer and songs failed to meet it. The trailer has received mixed response while the songs failed to make any impact. Having said that, you can’t judge the book by its cover.

Dabangg 3 Box Office Prediction: Expected First Day Collection

Considering all positives and negatives, I am expecting Dabangg 3 to open with around 60% occupancy on Friday. This means that the first-day collection of the film would be around Rs 35 crore.

It will be the third-highest opening day grosser of 2019. It would be almost impossible for Dabangg 3 to beat the opening day numbers of Bharat (Rs 42.3 crore) and War (Rs 53.35 crore).

Dabangg 3 Box Office Prediction: Expected Lifetime Collection

Salman Khan’s last two films failed to perform as per expectations. Race 3 released on Eid 2018 failed because off poor content. Bharat released this year on Eid earned Rs 211 crore. However, the expectations from Bharat were around Rs 300 crore.

Now, coming to Dabangg 3, the film hasn’t been able to create enough pre-release buzz. The opening will be big because of Salman Khan. However, if the film fails to deliver on content then there would fail after a big weekend.

Dabangg 3 Box Office Prediction: Based on WOM (word of mouth) and other factors

If WOM turns out positive

Day 1 Collection: 32 to 36 crore
