Dear Zindagi Day 1 US Box Office Collection
Dear Zindagi, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, which opened in the US on Wednesday, November 23, two days prior to its release in India (November 25), has collected a impressive amount at the US box office on its opening day. The Gauri Shinde film, which was released in the long weekend (Thanksgiving Day holiday), has managed to rake in $172,571 (Rs 1.19 crore) in the US box office on its first day.
“#DearZindagi had a midweek release in USA [Thanksgiving Weekend]… Collected an IMPRESSIVE $ 172,571 [₹ 1.19 cr] on Wednesday. @Rentrak,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted. The fans in US, who have watched the film, are going crazy about the power-packed performances of Shah Rukh and Alia. They claim the movie to be refreshing and light-hearted with a positive message. In India, the movie is expected to break a few records of first day collection at domestic box office. As per early estimates, Dear Zindagi will witness 35 percent occupancy and will collect approximately Rs 8-10 crore on its opening day.
Although the demonetisation drive in India is likely to hit the collection of the film to a certain extent, positive word-of-mouth publicity may help the movie’s overall business. Dear Zindagi has been making tremendous buzz, as it has a unique star cast combination of Shah Rukh and Alia. It narrates the story of a budding cinematographer Kaira (played by Alia) who meets a psychiatrist Jehangir Khan or Jug (played by Shah Rukh).
Jug helps a heartbroken Kaira gain a new perspective on love and life. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions and Hope Productions, Dear Zindagi also stars Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Aditya Roy Kapur.
