Speaking of Pakistan, Dhadak has clashed with Ali Zafar’s Teefa In Trouble at the box office. Trade Experts are of the opinion that Jhanvi and Ishaan starrer will perform, and open better. The directorial of Khaitan has received a strong opening across metro cities, central and north markets including Gujarat, UP, CP, and Bihar.
As per the early trends, the film is going to witness 90% occupancy in cinema halls pan India. It has been released on a total of 2235 screens in India. The movie is receiving growing positive word of mouth considering a new actor. It has got 556 screens overseas.
Dhadak will top this weekend beating all the new and old releases. However, it will be affected in some regions like monsoon hit areas in Maharashtra. No new release is posing threat to Dhadak, so it will earn well in the first weekend.
But, Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju will still impact Dhadak collection. Sanju, Soorma, Ant-Man & the Wasp, and new Hollywood releases like Skyscraper starring Dwayne Johnson and Adam Sandler’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation will have some impact for sure.
The film is expected to mint around Rs. 25 crores as the opening weekend collection. If word of mouth prevails extremely positive, then its business will shoot up even more. The Skyscraper is likely to earn Rs. 12 crores this weekend. It hasn’t been released in 3D in India, that’s its drawback.

It beat the opening collection of Student of the Year which collected Rs. 7.48 on its first Friday.
As per the expectations of trade analyst Akshaye Rathi, the new Hollywood films don’t stand a chance against Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor’s film. Rathi said that Skyscraper isn’t likely to top India box office, not in its opening weekend. Dhadak movie will be the first choice for the local audience.
The film is likely to earn Rs. 6 crores on the opening Friday. It’s a good number considering the debutante actor in the main lead. Director Shashank is 100% sure of his film’s success. His previous two films Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania performed really well. So, that’s also a plus point.
