We had already told you earlier in our early estimates report that Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Bharat didn’t show a huge jump yesterday at the box office due to India Vs Australia cricket world cup match. Now, the official collections of the fifth day are out and it is almost similar to what we had said in our early estimates. The period drama has raked in Rs 27.90 crore yesterday and now stands with the grand total of Rs 150.10 crore.
If the film holds well in the weekdays, it might enter the Rs 200 crore club at the ticket windows by the end of its extended opening week. Since there no big releases on the coming Friday, we are expecting Salman Khan’s Bharat to retain all its screens. Hollywood venture MIB: International, Taapsee Pannu’s Game Over and Prabhudheva and Tamannaah Bhatia’s Khamoshi are arriving this week and none of them are high on buzz.
Chennai box office: Vijay Antony’s Kolaigaran BEATS Salman Khan’s Bharat to grab the top spot
Bharat, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, brings Salman back to the big screen a year after Race 3, which too coincided with Eid. The new film features the Dabangg star in six different looks ranging from a young circus champion to a 60-year-old man where he is spotted with grey strands of hair. After receiving a positive response from the audience, Zafar said in a statement: “It is humbling to be showered this kind of love by audiences. I have tried to present Salman Khan in a totally new light and as a totally new hero with ‘Bharat’. “I’m ecstatic that audiences have liked our attempt to make ‘Bharat’ a thoroughly entertaining joyride that also has its soul in the right place.”
Anyway, do you think Bharat will beat Tiger Zinda Hai to become Salman Khan’s biggest hit? Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
