Dilwale is looking at a little drop in collections on Saturday as the circuits where it opened strongly are set to drop while others will be flat or up a little. If Mumbai circuit can make decent gains the film may have the same total as Friday otherwise it will be around the 20 crore nett mark. Some centres centres remained closed due to protests especially in CP Berar circuit.
The day two number is still good but like the Diwali release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo the film is not getting big numbers all over and here there is no holiday advantage either. The film is being held back in crucial areas like Mumbai, North and Central India. Mumbai is understandable as Bajirao Mastani is giving it good competition but North and Central will have to go up a level if it is to have a chance to get a big lifetime number.
Bajirao Mastani will show decent gains of 20-25% to take it to around the 15 crore nett mark as multiplexes in the big cities showed growth. The film really needed more growth but still has an outside chance if it can go on a run over the next few weeks.
