On its second Monday at the big screen, Dabangg 3 did a net collection of only Rs. 3 crores. The film which released on 20 December has been able to collect only Rs. 137.80 crores since its release. While the net collection isn't anything to be scoffed at it certainly hasn't reached early predictions.
Dabangg 3 also faces other issues like critics slamming it for a repetitive narrative and relying overly on Salman Khan's performance in his Chulbul Pandey character. Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor's Good Newwz is also giving Dabangg 3 a tough time at the box office. Good Newwz itself is doing well beyond excellence at the box office. Even on its first Monday, the film collected a total of Rs. 13 crores, far surpassing Dabangg 3's collection.
Salman Khan previously expressed no particular sadness or concern over this. Instead, he said that he hopes Akshay's film does better than his as it is all better in the end for the industry as a whole.
