The ugly box office clash between Dunki and Salaar has been intensified due to the ongoing issue over the number of shows and booking tickets at multiplex chains.

According to Sacnilk, Dunki has taken a good start at the box office and finished its advance booking with good numbers.The Rajkumar Hirani directorial has sold 558.8K tickets approximately, which is worth around Rs 15.50 crore. It had an overall 25 per cent occupancy in theatres and the movie is set to earn Rs 30 crore on its opening day, which will mark Hirani’s second highest grosser after Sanju with Rs 34 crore.
Salaar, on the other hand, has sold 101K tickets approximately for its Hindi version, which is worth Rs 2.70 crore. It has overall sold around 2 million tickets in the advance booking and it has already made Rs 30 crore gross on day 1.
