Experience the clash of titans as Shah Rukh Khan’s “Dunki” and Prabhas’s “Salaar” battle it out at the box office on December 22, 2023!
As December approaches its climax, Bollywood fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s forthcoming movie, “Dunki.” This film marks the collaboration of the iconic actor with renowned director Rajkumar Hirani for the first time, setting the stage for heightened excitement among audiences. Scheduled for a December 22, 2023 release, the movie has already sparked a frenzy in the foreign market, particularly in the United States, owing to its strong pre-release booking figures.
Having delivered two consecutive blockbuster hits, “Pathaan” and “Jawan,” earlier in the year, Shah Rukh Khan is now gearing up for his final cinematic appearance of 2023. “Dunki” promises a fresh pairing of the charismatic actor with Taapsee Pannu, further amplifying the anticipation surrounding the film.
The pre-release buzz for “Dunki” in the United States is palpable, given the success of Shah Rukh Khan’s previous movies in the country. With “Dunki” hitting approximately 320 locations across the USA and boasting a total of 915 showings, the advance ticket sales have been remarkable. Reports indicate that within a short span, approximately 6,514 tickets for the first-day showings of “Dunki,” starring Taapsee Pannu alongside Shah Rukh Khan, have already been sold in the foreign market.
As the release date draws near, the excitement continues to mount, with the movie having garnered an impressive $90,292 from pre-release ticket sales in the USA. The film’s fervent pre-release momentum suggests the potential for even greater numbers as the release date approaches.
However, amidst the high anticipation for “Dunki,” it’s worth noting that the movie will face stiff competition at the box office. Sharing the same release date is Prabhas starrer “Salaar,” directed by Prashanth Neel. This action-packed thriller, having already generated considerable buzz worldwide, is set to challenge “Dunki” in theaters. Fans are enthusiastic about the debut pairing of Shruti Hasan with Prabhas in this highly anticipated release.
“Salaar” has obtained an A certificate from the censor board and reportedly boasts a runtime of nearly three hours. While it’s been the subject of numerous discussions and speculations, some reports have hinted at similarities between “Salaar” and director Prashanth Neel’s initial film “Ugramm.”
As the release date of these two much-anticipated films draws closer, the clash between Shah Rukh Khan’s “Dunki” and Prabhas’s “Salaar” is poised to set the box office on fire, captivating audiences with their respective stories and star-studded casts. Bollywood enthusiasts eagerly await the big-screen spectacle these movies promise to deliver on December 22, 2023.
