Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 box office collection day 5 witnessed a slight drop in its collection on Tuesday due to Christmas Eve with all signs pointing to higher earnings on Wednesday due to national holiday for Christmas. Dabangg 3 five-day Indian box office collection has inched closer to Rs 100 crore net mark despite suffering a huge loss due to the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests across the country.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the movie, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar in the lead roles, is expected to garner good numbers on Wednesday due to the Christmas holiday. NewYear holidays ahead should prove advantageous, he added.
"#Dabangg3 collects in double digits on Day 4... Not performing at optimum levels... Needs to recover lost ground today [evening onwards] + tomorrow [#Christmas]...
