Now that the dust has settled and it is sinking in that a film by the name of DABANGG has broken the opening weekend and then (the seemingly impossible to break!) opening week record of 3 IDIOTS by netting 80.50 crores, time for some related issues that must also be discussed.
Around the time films like YUVVRAAJ and also VEER failed to score, there was a lot of discussion about how Salman Khan had lost his multiplex clout though still loved by the masses. When the conversation veered towards the hit plus WANTED again it was said that most of the earnings came from the single screens. There were also suggestions that Ajay, Ranbir or Shahid Kapoor should be given Salman’s place in the top five stars, the remaining being Aamir, Shah Rukh, Hrithik and Akshay.
However, the DABANGG Salman had other things in mind and decided to prove it by scaling Mount Everest, that is challenging 3 IDIOTS, and did it in his typical ‘dabangg’ way!
