You can hopefully get the sanskrit version of Sridhara Swami's at Jayalakshmi Indological Book store in Mylapore, Chennai. 

You can get Tamil translation of Bhagavatham by Kadalangudi which is based on Sridhara and Vamsidhara.

Unfortunately it seems that even the sanskrit editions of this tika are 
long out of print.  The Tirupati Devasthana is in the process of 
publishing an edition of the Bhagavata purana with the bhavartha dipika 
along with other vishistadvaita, dvaita etc. tikas but it will be some 
time before it is complete and in any case it will be Sanskrit only.

I was going to reply to you that as far as I knew Dongre Maharaj's 
bhagavata expositions were only available in Gujarati but then I came 
across this:


I have not seen the book so I don't know if it is a translation or an 
original work (Dongre Maharaj knew English, Marathi, and Hindi as well as 
Gujarati and Sanskrit.) nor can I vouch for its quality.

No this Dongre Maharaj (Ramachandra Shastri Dongre) was different.  He was 
born in Vadodara (Baroda) Gujarat of Chitpavana Brahmana stock. 
(The Gaekwad Maharajas were Marathas so there is a sizable Marathi 
population there.)   He became one of the most popular and beloved 
Bhagavata Kathakars of the 20th century in Gujarat and his writings are 
widely available wherever Gujarati speakers can be found.  He reached 
Vaikuntha in 1990.
