Shahrukh Khan’s Dunki box office collection on day 1 is not extraordinary like his previous ventures, Pathaan and Jawan.
The highly anticipated Shahrukh Khan’s movie Dunki is running in theatres. After a long time wait, the audience gets the chance to adore the King Khan of Bollywood three times a year. At the beginning of 2023, SRK graced the silver screen with the action thriller Pathaan. Following this, another action thriller titled Jawan hit the theatre in September and now King of Romance is back with his comedy-drama film, Dunki.
Both the previous movies of SRK became successful in winning hearts and proved to be record-breaking; Pathan and Jawan ruled the box office
and made a collection of 57 crores and 75 crores on Day 1 respectively. After seeing this jaw-dropping success rate, makers expected a lot from Dunki but it failed to surpass both the movies and grossed less than 30 crores on the opening day.
