Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar-starrer Dabangg 3 is on a roll. The film opened with a bang and collected Rs 24.50 crore and ended the first weekend with Rs 81.15 crore in its kitty. While Salman Khan has managed to weave magic once again with his character of Chulbul Pandey on the big screen, South superstar Kiccha Sudeep played the antagonist with panache. According to a Box Office India report, the film continued to maintain its hold on the Box Office on the first Monday as well and earned around Rs 10 crore, taking its total collection to approx Rs 91 crore.
"#Dabangg3 partially regains lost ground on Day 3... Biz jumps across circuits... Loses a big chunk of *opening weekend* biz [approx ₹ 12 cr] due to protests... Day 4 [Mon] crucial... #Christmas celebrations [Tue evening onwards and Wed] should boost biz... #Dabangg3 - despite protests affecting its biz severely - packs ₹ 81 cr+," trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote.
It was said that the Box Office collection of the movie was getting hampered in view of the anti-CAA protests in the country. To this end, Sonakshi Sinha earlier said, "I think people know what is more important and I am honestly happy about that. The entire country has come together and protested against it (CAA). It is definitely more important than a film."
Directed by Prabhudeva, the film also marks the debut of Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter Saiee as Khushi. She is seen romancing Chulbul Pandey in the flashback sequence of the film.
