Dear Zindagi box office collections opening weekend prediction: With Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer getting a big Saturday boost and earning Rs 11.25 cr for a total of Rs 20 cr overall in the Indian market alone, the prospects for the movie have improved tremendously as Sunday is bound to eclipse both release day (Friday) and day 2 (Saturday) collections as more and more people will look to take in the movie at theatres on this universal holiday. That the movie is good, bordering even on the great (if only SRK had limited the monologues and frequently treading into the life’s intricacies and allowed the film to move freely along its natural contours, the movie would have been tagged as great for sure) and that would have made for an incredibly powerful take at the box office even though its release has been limited.
As such, this ‘hatke’ SRK special has been tagged as a niche movie and will suffer some pain at the BO. In any case, by limiting its release to 1100 theatres, SRK had already ensured the movie would have no hope of listing itself in the overall Bollywood top grossers’ list.

Dear Zindagi box office collections opening weekend prediction is thus for a sum near Rs 35 cr, which means expectations are that the marketing spend and the immense amount of trouble Shahrukh Khan and Alia Bhatt have taken to plug the movie from all possible sources, plus the tremendous audience reviews will likely ensure a take of around Rs 15 cr – remember the movie is being showed mostly in multiplexes in top Indian metros and therefore, this kind of earnings numbers are a tremendous achievement, since this strategy has denied a huge chunk of SRK fan fraternity from accessing the movie.
