Dear Zindagi is the big release happening tomorrow that is 25th November, 2016 at box office. Release is big for two reason. First of course film has Shah Rukh Khan in extended cameo in addition to Alia Bhatt. Second is all films are facing demonetisation issue till date and hence performing below the mark. Hope Dear Zindagi change that state of affairs as far as box office is concerned.
No doubt Alia Bhatt is a big star today, but still opening will depend on SRK star power and content. Dear Zindagi is unlike other SRK starrer films. Here he is playing one of the characters and is having an extended appearance in the film. There are other characters also who revolve around Alia's character.
If SRK is not in the film, then 4-5 crore opening would have been a decent start for the film. But since he is there a double of that number will be good. Even we can't ruled out double digit opening also.
As far as screening is concerned, Dear Zindagi is getting very good release in multiplexes. However film screening in single screen is limited. This is have no negative effect on the film anyways as it's genre is more inclined towards multiplexes audiences.
Finally hope bad days for Bollywood is over and Dear Zindagi helps to bring some smile back again.
