According to Sacnilk, Dunki had an overall 25 per cent occupancy on Friday.It looks like the release of Prabhas starrer Salaar, directed by Prashanth Neel has severely affected the collections of SRK starrer. As per early estimates, Dunki is set to earn over 14 crore on day 2, taking its two-day collections to over Rs 44 crore.
On its opening day, the movie also starring Taapsee Pannu, Boman Irani, Vicky Kaushal among others, raked in Rs 30 crore nett at the domestic box. The day one earnings of Dunki is significantly lower than both Pathaan and Jawan, which had amassed Rs 55 crore and Rs 65.5 crore nett on their opening days in India respectively. The two movies went on to earn over Rs 1000 crore at the worldwide box office.

Salaar, on the other hand, has performed exceptionally well at the domestic box office. The movie, which also stars Prithviraj Sukumaran, Shruti Haasan among others, is set to earn Rs 95 crore nett in India for all languages.
It remains to be seen whether Dunki will be able to bounce back in its opening weekend to put up a descent total on the board while facing a tough competition from the Prabhas starrer. While Dunki marks the first collaboration of SRK and Hirani, Salaar also marks the biggest collaboration between KGF director Prashanth Neel and Baahubali star Prabhas for the first time.
