New Delhi: The Salman Khan-starring action-thriller 'Dabangg 3' has grossed a whopping 24.5 crore on its first day.
Film critic and analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter and explained that Salman's image of a bankable star is the key contributor for the movie's collection.
He stated that the movie's collection has been fluctuating throughout the first day and a substantial sum was lost due to the protests over the Citizenship Amendment Act across major cities of India. This also dampened it's overall earning to some extent.
Adarsh also shared an account of the first-day collections of Khan's movies since 'Veer' in 2010 till 'Dabangg 3' in 2019. The data shows 'Bharat' as the highest first-day grosser with ₹42.30 crore.
'Dabangg 3' is the third film of the 'Dabangg' franchise, which stars Sonakshi Sinha opposite Salman Khan.
The movie also features veteran actor Mahesh Manjrekar's debutant daughter Saiee Manjrekar and Arbaaz Khan in significant roles.
