'Dabangg 2' Collects Over 20 Crores On First Day!

Salman Khan starrer masala flick Dabangg 2, which released on December 21, has already started raking moolah at the box office. Industry insiders claim that the film collected Rs. 21.10 crore net all across India as the 1st day booty and with huge advances for the weekend!

 
It seems that this is the highest opening for any non-holiday release in Bollywood until date, last being the Akshay Kumar starrer Rowdy Rathore, which was approximately close to Rs.15 crores. The box-office numbers are expected to rise over the weekend and it seems that Dabangg 2 would soon join the coveted Rs. 100 crore club.
 
Dabangg 2, which was Arbaaz Khan's directorial debut, followed the adventures of roguishly charming cop Chulbul Pandey, who gets transferred to Kanpur and takes on the criminal elements comprising Bachcha Singh (Prakash Raj) and his brothers Chunni (Nikitin Dheer) and Genda (Deepak Dobriyal).
