Dilwale box office collections vs Bajirao Mastani: Both movies collections have reached the Rs 100 crore mark, but this is courtesy the foreign collections. What the filmmakers must now be worrying about is the reception the public will give Star Wars, which will release on Friday. (Bollywood Hungama)

Dilwale vs Bajirao Mastani box office collections: The fight is between a megastar Shah Rukh Khan and rising female star Deepika Padukone and the irreverent Ranveer Singh. And it did not turn into a no-contest bout either. While the champion is ahead, the newcomers are not giving an inch in the tussle for theatregoers attention as well as the contents of their wallets, so to speak. Both Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani have breached the Rs 100 cr mark, but tellingly it is courtesy the foreign collections and not just based on the India take.

The opening weekend is behind us and Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale won the initial round against Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra’s Bajirao Mastani Rs 89.11 cr to Rs 61.17 cr, the dust has more or less settled as far as the initial fan frenzy is concerned. Now, with the working week on its way to conclusion it is clear the SRK starrer is falling more. However, the overall business transacted by Dilwale is still far ahead as is clear from the the fact that by Wednesday (day 6), SRK starrer reached a total of Rs 149.39 crore and Bajirao Mastani Rs 105.63 crore

To be sure, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer Dilwale had a number of positives going for it, from presence of megastar himself to greater number of screens booked, but what has provided Bajirao Mastani a leg-up is the presence of Deepika Padukone who has a number of Rs 100 cr movies to her name, aside from Ranveer Singh and a ticking storyline in a period thriller. On top of it, the movie got good mention in reviews.

When the movies hit theatres, while Dilwale got Rs 21 crore (day 1), Rs 20.09 crore (day 2) and Rs 24 crore (day 3), the film managed an India take of Rs 65.09 crore and with foreign take, the tally ballooned to Rs 89.11 crore.

The same on part of Bajirao Mastani was Rs 12.80 crore (day 1), Rs 15.52 crore (day 2) and Rs 18.45 crore (day 3) for an India total of Rs 47.77 crore and an opening weekend tally of Rs 61.17 crore.

Dilwale vs Bajirao Mastani box office collections: Monday’s take is always crucial for any movie and holds true for both Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani as in this week itself there is an extended holiday weekend almost on us starting Friday (Christmas) and the movie that starts the week well ought to end up standing tall at its conclusion. What is now going to decide which movie rules, or whether both go head-to-head, is word of mouth and who has a larger fan following as well as which movie received a bigger marketing push.

For all intents and purposes, Bajirao Mastani leads in word of mouth respect at least as its take has been rising from first day, while Shah Rukh Khan’s stuttered on Saturday – it fell from Rs 21 crore (day 1), Rs 20.09 crore (day 2). Many other reasons may be there to blame, but Bajirao Mastani collections have been heading north since Friday.

On Monday (day 4), while Dilwale box office collections fell to Rs 10.09 crore, Bajirao Mastani collections saw it actually beat SRK for the first time since release by earning Rs 10.25 crore – surely, a significant achievement.

On Tuesday (day 5) Dilwale box office collections increased by Rs 9.42 crore. This took the domestic total to Rs 84.60 crore and with the foreign earnings added, the tally rises to as much as Rs 140.60 crore. Bajirao Mastani box office collections on the same day are Rs 9.40 crore which takes the score to Rs 66.42 crore in India and with international sales added, the sum total is Rs 96.42 crore

Shah Rukh Khan starrer’s earnings fell much more than Bajirao Mastani on day 6 (Wednesday) to their lowest ever at Rs 8.79 crore. This has taken the India take to Rs 93.39 crore and the overall figure to Rs 149.39 crore. Bajirao Mastani box office collections on day 6 held steady as theatregoers continued to stream into offices in good enough numbers, indicating that it packed enough punch to convince those who were prevaricating to head for cinemas too. In terms of numbers the earnings were Rs 9.21 crore. The total in terms of India collections rose to Rs 75.63 crore and overall the take jumped across the Rs 100 crore mark at Rs 105.63 crore. So, even though the figures are falling rapidly, both Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani are in a position to still give each other a stiff fight for the cinegoers wallet.

So, even though the figures are falling rapidly, both Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani are in a position to still give each other a stiff fight for the theatregoers wallet.

The only other competition that both Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani will face is Star Wars: The Force Awakens this Friday and then on January 8 when Amitabh Bachchan starrer Wazir hits the theatres.

    What SRK wanted to say that India is becoming intolerant only in last two and three months specifically influenced with some unfortunate accident with respect to cow issue and subsequent murders . He didn't mean that our India is always intolerant. .But people are taking it wrongly and spreading the wrong message about him... Think friend. .he is the pride of india we should understand him rather than unnecessarily dragging the issue, Ultimately it is the loss of country. ..

        SRK is the pride of india and bollywood is known kn all over worldby SRK only after our millennium star Amitabh Bachchan. Even Brack Obama has also appreciated his name during his recent visit to India. ... So don't miguide the people by making such comments. .. Second unless understand the issue don't mix terrorism and intolerance with each other. Though in my view both are crime. In terrorism victims are not identified but in intolerance victims religion is identifiable. ...

          SRK is our pride. India's first international actor and ruling on bollywood for last 25 years, inspired so many people, we would not let him down just because of some people vested interest. .
