The Big Picture

  • Salaar, starring Prabhas, outperforms Dunki at the box office in India and worldwide, marking a successful comeback for the actor.
  • Salaar grossed nearly $40 million worldwide in its first three days, surpassing Dunki's $24 million after debuting a day earlier.
  • Prabhas hasn't had a hit since the Baahubali movies, but Salaar's success suggests his gritty sensibilities combined with his stardom are paying off.
