“Prabhas in an intense role in Salaar? Count me in! The action-packed trailer has me hooked, and I’m ready for a rollercoaster ride on first day,” said another Prabhas fan from the city.

Abdul, a student from Hyderabad picked Dunki. He said, “Shah Rukh Khan is the king of Bollywood! Dunki is my pick; I have watched Pathaan and Jawan as well and now I can’t wait to see SRK back on screen in a different role.”

“I’ve missed Shah Rukh Khan’s romance and charm. Dunki promises to be a heartwarming story, and I’m excited to see him on screen again and I am not a very action person, so Dunki is my pick,” said Sneha, a digital marketer from Hyderabad.

“Salaar’s teaser gave me goosebumps! Prabhas, Prashanth Neel and high-octane action – it’s a no-brainer for me. I’m all in for Salaar. I’ve booked my tickets already and mark my words it’s going to be a blockbuster, ” said Manish, who is from Hyderabad but currently studying in USA.

Another die-hard fan of SRK said, “Shah Rukh Khan’s films are a family affair for us. Dunki’s family-oriented theme appeals to me, and I’m taking my whole family to watch it.”

Sowmya who works in IT seems to be one of the biggest fans of Prabhas. She said, “Dunki vs Salaar? No doubt, I’m with Salaar! I can never miss any of Prabha’s movies, and this one looks like a game-changer.”

“Prabhas is our hero, and Salaar is going to be a massive hit and I am going to watch it with my friends at Sandhya theatre as movies are celebrated like festivals there,” said Abhishek, a student.

Well, according to our quick survey, it seems like more people are excited about Salaar compared to Dunki. 70% of people said Salaar, while others picked SRK-starrer. Also, the trend is evident in the fact that Salaar tickets are in high demand, causing website crashes, while Dunki tickets for day 1 are still available. In Hyderabad, most theatres for Salaar are already sold out on day 1, making it tough to grab a ticket on the opening day.

Let’s wait and see who will manage to win at the box office. What do you think? Comment below.
