Sunny Deol’s son, Rajveer Deol, and Poonam Dhillon’s daughter, Paloma, marked their entry into Bollywood with the much-anticipated romantic drama “Dono.” Unfortunately, the film, directed by Avnish Barjatya, couldn’t create fireworks at the box office on its opening day.
Dono Day 1 Box Office Collection
Despite the buzz surrounding “Dono” and an extensive promotional campaign featuring endorsements from Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, and Anupam Kher, the film managed to rake in a mere Rs 35 lakh on its debut. The buy-one-get-one scheme and a star-studded support system failed to give the movie the boost it needed. The subdued opening of “Dono” raises questions about the reception of newcomers in Bollywood, even with established names backing the project. The industry’s unpredictability adds an element of suspense to the fate of the film in the weeks to come. As audiences continue to grapple with choices amidst the diverse cinematic offerings, the journey of “Dono” at the box office becomes an intriguing subplot in the larger narrative of Bollywood’s ever-evolving landscape.
Comparisons With Karan Deol’s Debut
Drawing comparisons with Sunny Deol’s eldest son, Karan Deol, who made his debut in 2019 with “Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas,” the contrast is stark. Karan’s film, directed by Sunny himself, minted Rs 1.3 crore on the opening day despite eventually being declared a flop. Sunny, however, recently bounced back with the blockbuster “Gadar 2.” “Dono,” a romantic drama set against the backdrop of a wedding, follows the love story of Dev and Meghna. Thus portrayed by Rajveer and Paloma. The narrative revolves around the challenges they face in love, having both experienced heartbreaks in the past.

The box office, often unpredictable, might still hold surprises for Rajveer Deol and Paloma as they embark on their Bollywood journey. Will Rajveer Deol and Paloma manage to turn the tide for “Dono”? Or is this a temporary setback for the budding stars? The coming weeks will unfold the trajectory of their debut film and its place in the competitive world of Hindi cinema.
