Shah Rukh Khan enjoyed a glorious time last year with not one or two but three successful films. He smashed it out of the park with sensational blockbusters- Pathaan and Jawan. Even his Dunki, which came out ahead of Christmas, did well at the worldwide box office and earned over 450 crores gross. While the film earned less than SRK’s first two blockbusters, it is spreading its magic on the OTT platform. Keep reading to know more!

Underwhelming performance at the box office

The dramedy marked the dream collaboration between Shah Rukh Khan and director Rajkumar Hirani. As both are the powerhouse of talents, expectations were really high from this collaboration, but unfortunately, the film failed to meet them. Upon its release, the film received mixed reviews from critics, and even word-of-mouth among audiences was mixed. However, the holiday season and good support from family audiences made this SRK starrer a clear winner at the worldwide box office.

Dunki shines bright on Netflix

While Dunki’s performance in theatres was below expectations, it has been unstoppable so far on the OTT platform. For those who don’t know, the film is currently streaming on Netflix and is doing wonders with its viewership. Currently in its third week, the Rajkumar Hirani directorial maintained its position in the top 3 on Netflix (non-English films) all across the globe during the second week.

In the second week (19-25 February), Dunki amassed 4.2 million views on Netflix, with 11.1 million streaming hours. According to the debut week data (15-18 February), the film amassed 4.9 million views and was watched for 13 million hours. Combining both numbers, the film enjoyed a staggering viewership of 9.1 million in just 11 days, with 24.1 million streaming hours.

More about Dunki
