Get ready for a box office clash of the titans! Two highly anticipated films, Prabhas’ action-packed “Salaar: Cease Fire- Part 1″ (Salaar) and Shah Rukh Khan’s comedy-drama “Dunki,” are set to hit theaters this week. And guess what? The advance booking war is already in full swing, with “Salaar” taking a clear lead over “Dunki” in India.

Salaar Sizzles with Rs 13 Crore Advance Booking:

  • “Salaar” has crossed the Rs 13 crore mark in advance bookings, selling over 6 lakh tickets across the country. That’s a whole lot of excited fans!
  • The film’s Telugu version is the biggest crowd-puller, with over 4.3 lakh tickets booked. Malayalam follows with a strong 87,000 tickets sold.
  • Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and even IMAX shows are contributing to the film’s impressive advance booking numbers.
  • The hype is so real in Hyderabad that movie ticketing platforms like BookMyShow and Paytm crashed due to the high demand!
  • The Telangana government has given “Salaar” an extra boost by allowing 1 am shows on day 1 and raising ticket prices in select theaters.

Dunki Holds Its Ground, But Lags Behind:

  • Shah Rukh Khan‘s “Dunki” isn’t far behind, with around 3.65 lakh tickets sold for Rs 10.39 crore. Still a respectable number, but not quite matching “Salaar’s” firepower.
  • Major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Bangalore are driving the advance booking for “Dunki.”
  • Film critic Sumit Kadel predicts that “Dunki” could still reach Rs 14-15 crore in advance bookings before the first show on Thursday.

So, who will win the box office battle?

It’s too early to say for sure. Both films have their dedicated fan bases and unique appeal. “Salaar” is banking on Prabhas’ action hero image and the promise of high-octane thrills, while “Dunki” relies on Shah Rukh Khan’s star power and the always-popular comedy genre.

One thing’s for sure, this weekend is going to be a cinematic showdown! Grab your popcorn, pick your team (Salaar or Dunki?), and get ready for a roller coaster ride at the movies!
