India’s box office collection for Dunki, as per early reports, is expected to reach ₹30 crore nett on its first day across all languages. This places it as Shah Rukh Khan’s least successful opening film this year, especially when compared to Pathaan, which reportedly earned ₹57 crore, and Jawan, which raked in ₹89.5 crore on their respective release days.

Hindustan Times’ review of Dunki acknowledges Shah Rukh Khan as the film’s standout, portraying a familiar yet charming character. Despite tepid reviews, the actor’s performance is noted to shine in the second half, particularly during challenging journeys through Iran’s deserts and the snowy mountains en route to London.

Fans eagerly welcomed Dunki’s release with drumbeats and celebrations, particularly in Udaipur, Mumbai, Jammu, Kolkata, and Guwahati. While critics expressed disappointment with the comedy-drama’s treatment of illegal immigration, Shah Rukh Khan’s fandom remains strong.

Dunki, featuring Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Boman Irani, Vikram Kochhar, and Anil Grover, faces competition from Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire. The latter, a period action drama starring Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran, is set to release on Friday.

Shah Rukh Khan’s earlier releases, Pathaan and Jawan, each crossed the ₹1,000 crore mark worldwide, significantly contributing to the revival of the Hindi film exhibition sector.”

The morning of Dunki’s release saw fervent enthusiasm among fans, with celebrations including garlanded Shah Rukh cutouts, milk pouring, and cake cutting in various parts of the country. Notably, a fan club in Mumbai orchestrated the “first-ever 5.55 am” screening at Gaiety Cinema.

Dunki becomes Shah Rukh Khan’s third film of the year, following the resounding success of Pathaan and Jawan, both of which surpassed the ₹1,000 crore milestone globally. The triumphant performance of these films played a pivotal role in revitalizing the struggling Hindi film exhibition sector.
