Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Dabangg 3 hit the screens on Friday i.e. 20 December, 2019.

The film opened to reviews on the box-office and earned Rs 24.5 crore on the first day. The box office collection on the second day of release was similar to its business on the opening day, says a report in Box Office India. The film has made an estimated Rs 22- 24 crore nett on day 2, taking the total collections to Rs 46.50 crores.
It said that the earnings could easily have been in the range of Rs 55-58 crore nett over two days, had there been no law and order problems.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had earlier tweeted the day 1 numbers and said that the film had made Rs 24.50 crores. He wrote, ''#Dabangg3 Fri â¹ 24.5 cr. #India biz. Note: ALL VERSIONS.'' Dabangg 3's first day collection is lesser than Bharat, which had a mega opening at Rs 42 crore.

The film also stars newcomer Saiee Manjrekar, daughter of popular Hindi and Marathi director Mahesh Manjrekar, Kannada film star Sudeep and late Vinod Khanna’s brother, Pramod.
The makers recently announced that they have "voluntarily" removed certain scenes from the film's title track "Hud Hud Dabangg". The film had attracted controversy after a Hindu outfit objected to a sequence in the title song that shows saffron-clad sadhus dancing with guitars. Taking to Twitter, the official handle of Salman Khan Films posted, "Keeping everyone's sentiments in mind, we have voluntarily edited certain scenes from the song 'Hud Hud Dabangg'."
Dabangg 3 is the third film in the hit Dabangg franchise, which narrates the story of an intrepid cop who refuses to play by the rule book.
