In a year that saw numerous all-time records been set, the last day saw satisfactory results come in. Over Rs. 20 crores were collected between Dunki and Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire (Hindi) on Sunday and given the fact that the year’s beginning wasn’t good at all with only Pathaan kicks-tarting the proceedings say deep down on 25 January with so many barren days before it, one can’t complain with the way 2023 has come to a close.

Box Office: Dunki enters double digits, Salaar (Hindi) grows, over Rs. 20 crores come on the last day of 2023

To think of it, both the films have seen a mixed response coming their way. Moreover, the clash has hurt both of them. Still, now they have got into a sustained mode though honestly, it has to be seen how the two run from here on right till 25 January when Hrithik Roshan’s Fighter arrives. Yet again, Siddharth Anand is the director and Deepika Padukone is the leading lady (after Pathaan), so the onus could well be falling on them to get big bucks coming at the box office.

Coming to what’s playing currently, Dunki gathered Rs. 10.80 crores more at the box office with family audiences getting back to theatres, especially at the urban centres and key multiplexes. That has pushed the total to Rs. 175.57 crores. The film should cross Rs. 200 crores between today and tomorrow. On the other hand, Salaar (Hindi) is running primarily on the strength of the masses in interiors and that’s what ensures that a near double digit score came in with Rs. 9.25 crores been collected. The Prabhas starrer now stands at Rs. 117.95 crores and while Rs. 140 crores would be crossed eventually, the race would be towards Rs. 150 crores lifetime total.

Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
