The countdown has begun! DABANGG 2, the much awaited biggie of 2012, opens globally this Friday [a day earlier, on Thursday, in parts of Overseas]. One of the most anticipated films of the year, its release timing -- during the Christmas and New Year holidays -- is expected to translate into big bucks at the ticket window.
The last few years have been extremely rewarding for Salman Khan. His movies have done phenomenally well in the domestic market. In the international arena too, his popularity has increased manifold. DABANGG, BODYGUARD and EK THE TIGER in particular have grossed humungous figures, cementing Salman's status as a global star. DABANGG 2 is expected to strengthen his position further.
The hype for DABANGG 2 is crazy. The advance booking has been fantastic and it won't be erroneous to state that a typhoon is all set to strike this weekend. In fact, the question on everyone's lips is, will DABANGG 2 emerge Salman's biggest hit? Another question: Will DABANGG 2 overtake the business of 3 IDIOTS in the domestic market [202 cr nett]?
The expectations are gargantuan and so is the responsibility on Arbaaz's shoulders. From the looks of it, expect new benchmarks to be set!
