The film has already earned Rs 2o crore within two days of its release.

Dear Zindagi is being appreciated for its novelty by the audience. Many films fail to do what Dear Zindagi did so cleverly and that is adding the stardom of Shah Rukh Khan to a coming-of-age movie. The film, which is co-produced by Gauri Khan, Karan Johar and SRK, collected Rs 8.75 crore on Friday and followed it up with Rs 11.25 crore on Saturday. This brings the total earning of Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan film to Rs 20 crore. The film is expected to do well during this weekend.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#DearZindagi shows SUPERB growth on Day 2… Fri 8.75 cr, Sat 11.25 cr. Total: ₹ 20 cr [1200 screens]. India biz.”

The popularity of Shah Rukh Khan is clearly visible on overseas box office collection of the film. In UAE/GCC, the film has earned over Rs 5 crore. Taran informed, “#DearZindagi has an EXCELLENT start in UAE-GCC… Thu $ 361,000, Fri $ 428,040, Total: $789,040 [₹ 5.40 cr].” In North America, where the film had a midweek release, it collected Rs 17.82 lakh and Rs 2.69 crore in Canada and the USA respectively. Dear Zindagi has managed to mint a robust Rs 2.87 crore in North America. The film has also fared well as compared to Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish while it is the fifth biggest opener for Alia Bhatt.

Dear Zindagi is a comparatively low-budget film with its total cost coming to Rs 22 crore and about Rs 10 crore being spent on promotions. The film would be able to break even in its first weekend itself.

The film has been garnering praise from celebs and audience alike. While Alia’s father, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, said he was staggered by her performance, Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan also took to Twitter to write about the film.

The audience has praised the performance of Alia Bhatt who portrays Kaira – an independent woman. Kaira’s endeavour to find stability in her relationships is endearing. Most young women could relate to the character of Kiara. This is the second stellar performance by Alia after garnering rave reviews for Udta Punjab. Shah Rukh Khan has earlier said that he is playing an extended cameo in Dear Zindagi.

          Seems to be a big failure !! Even opening of John Abraham and Sonakshi "Force 2" was 6 Cr so 8.75 is nothing.

              How do you know what were the expectations from this film ??? The orginal movie "Good Will Hunting" was a mive success at the box office so don't tell it was supposed to do small business.

                  Dear Zindagi collection in overseas stands at 12.64 crore which is a terrific number for a movie of such low on budget . It also includes collections from North America (Wed Thu) and Gulf (Thu). The film is the fifth highest opener of 2016 in overseas. lt;br/gt;SRK is clearly changing his strategy and supporting small and low profile movies like FAN and DEAR Zindagi and will come with big movies in b/w like Raees

                    yes its strong performance coz that is what expected out of it , a movie made of just 22 crs with marketing of 8 to 9 cr, released in limited shows . This is like an in-depended movie supported by big production house and big star in extended cameo

                          This should be a typical Bollywood romantic comedy and unmitigated Shah Rukh Khan film, may get disappointed.
