Dilwale box office collections got off to a fine start, raking in Rs 21 crore on day 1 after logging an occupancy rate of 70% in theatres. If you add the foreign take to the collections, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol 'chemistry' was able to generate a take of Rs 24.26 crore on opening day. Dilwale collections rose to an overall Rs 44.35 crore, inclusive of foreign take by day 2. On Sunday, which is day 3 (and also referred to cumulatively as the opening weekend), the collections jumped to a total of Rs 89.11 crore – indeed a creditable achievement by the film in the face of stiff competition from a movie backed by Eros International that has also won rave reviews from critics, which is Bajirao Mastani. Overall by day 4, Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dilwale box office collections in India have risen to Rs 75.18 crore and the tally with foreign earnings reached Rs 131.18 crore.
However, Considering Dilwale had a lesser number of screens than it would have had were it a solo release, as these were divided between the Shah Rukh Khan starrer and Bajirao Mastani, the earnings were quite reduced and no records were scripted, leave alone them getting anywhere near Salman Khan's mammoth hit film of 2015 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo', which had an overall lifetime take in India of Rs 200 crore - PRDP did not have any competing big star movies released on the same day and also had an extended festive season weekend and as such, did very well.
