Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 2 surpasses the opening day collections of Dabangg

Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Dabangg 2 has earned Rs 21.10 crore in India on the first day of its release and has surpassed the opening day collections of the original movie. The main reason of earning huge amount of money on the first day is that the movie was released in a larger number of screens.
Dabangg 2 was released in 2500 screens across India against 1800 for the previous one. Not only that but also it has amassed Rs 100 crore in just six days. It has made the record of becoming one of the highest earning movies on the opening day for any non-holiday release in Bollywood till date. It even surpassed the first day collections of Akshay Kumar’s Rowdy Rathore, which earned Rs 15 crore. It was a non-holiday release too.
With this movie, the actor-producer, Arbaaz Khan, made his directorial debut. Dabangg2 is a sequel of Dabangg which was directed by Abhinav Kashyap and managed to rake in Rs 14.5 crore on its first day.
