Kahaani 2 flops, Dear Zindagi manages to be a Success.
Kahaani 2 had a below average first week and despite the numbers of the week is in the similar range of the part 1 we can easily say that the response and acclaim is not at all near to the last part. The movie had the week of 24.26 cr and from here it is not going anywhere, in this process we get another flop this year.
The day wise break up of collections are as follows;
Fri – 4.25 cr
Sat – 5.79 cr
Sun – 6.93 cr
Mon – 2.04 cr
Tue – 1.96 cr
Wed – 1.74 cr
Thu – 1.55 cr
Total: ₹ 24.26 cr nett.
Meanwhile, Dear Zindagi in its second week added another 14.49 cr and took the grand total to 61.49 cr. It is safe to say that despite being a niche film it is a hit and the domestic, as well as overseas business, has given a lot of profits to the makers. Presence of bug stars helped the cause but definitely, film has got some serious appreciation from the desired section of the audience. Two weeks break up collections are as follows;
1st week – 47 cr
2nd week – 14.49 cr
Total – 61.49 cr nett. HIT.
Development of the film began in 2015 when Shinde signed Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan for a film to be made under her banner. Principal photography took place in Goa and Mumbai, in the period from 21 January to 20 May 2016. The film features a score composed by Amit Trivedi and lyrics written mostly by Kausar Munir.
Dear Zindagi released on 23 November 2016 in North America, two days before its worldwide release on 25 November 2016, to commercial success and generally positive reviews. It received a number of accolades at Bollywood award organizations, with particular praise for Bhatt’s and Khan’s performances, direction, and film score.
