Box Office India:
Dear Zindagi has opened well at 40-45% on average. The Shahrukh Khan factor has worked for the film to give it a good starting point and it remains to see if the film can go further. The opening of the film is no doubt a plus, if we look at morning occupancy it can be compared to a film like Fan.
