Dunki box office collection day 4 early report: Shah Rukh Khan film enters Rs 100 crore club | Bollywood News - The Indian Express

Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkummar Hirani’s much-anticipated collaboration, Dunki, released on December 21 last year, is grappling with challenges as it approaches the end of its cinematic journey. Despite the initial buzz surrounding the film, it struggled to compete with the formidable box office performance of Salaar: Part 1- Ceasefire, a juggernaut starring Prashanth Neel and Prabhas, which amassed over Rs 400 crore.

Initial Expectations and Performance

Dunki carried high expectations, particularly as Shah Rukh Khan made his return after two consecutive blockbusters, Pathaan and Jawan. However, facing fierce competition from Salaar, the film garnered a somewhat muted response. Although produced on a reported budget of Rs 85 crore, ensuring the makers won’t face significant losses, the film failed to live up to the initial hype.

Box Office Figures

In its first week, Dunki managed to accumulate Rs 160 crore, showcasing a promising start. However, the second week witnessed a significant 71% dip, with earnings dropping to Rs 45 crore. The downward trend continued into the third week, with the film only collecting Rs 15 crore. The situation worsened on Monday when the film recorded its lowest box office collection, a mere Rs 30 lakhs, bringing the total to Rs 225.42 crore.

Facing the End

Dunki is now on the brink of concluding its theatrical run, making way for the much-anticipated release of Fighter, directed by Siddharth Anand and featuring Hrithik Roshan, Anil Kapoor, and Deepika Padukone. As of January 25, Fighter is set to take over the screens, marking the end of Dunki‘s journey at the box office.


Despite the challenges faced by Dunki, Shah Rukh Khan remains optimistic, emphasizing his versatility as "the Indian for all ages" in his victory speech after winning the Indian of the Year 2023 Award. As the curtains draw on Dunki‘s box office run, it’s clear that the film had its share of highs and lows, contributing to the dynamic landscape of Bollywood’s competitive film industry.
