‘Don’ sequel rakes in millions on day one


Looks like it is going to be a good year for Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan’s latest offering ‘Don 2’ raked in 150 million Indian rupees on its opening day with trade pundits predicting the figures to go up as it is a Christmas weekend. The year has seen some astounding box office collection for several films.
While ‘Bodyguard’ is leading the pack by garnering approximately 890 million in the first five days, SRK’s other film ‘Ra.One’ is fourth in the list with a collection of 803 million in first five days. Although the collection of ‘Don 2’ on its first day is lower than these two hits, Sanjeev Lamba, chief executive officer at Reliance Entertainment, felt it was due to a working Friday.
Even though critics have stated that the film borrows from several Hollywood classics, the film is being lauded for its action sequences and SRK’s performance.
