Salman Khan starrer ‘Bharat’ has set all records straight with raking the first day collections at the box office as the highest ever of all times for the superstar.
Despite a working day, Bharat has garnered 31 cr nett on day two taking the grand total to 73.30 cr nett Owing to Salman Khan’s mass popularity across the globe, Bharat is all set to witness an upward trend over the weekend.
The magic of the duo Salman Khan and director Ali Abbas Zafar has pulled out massive numbers and becomes second highest first-day of all times despite the much-hyped India vs South Africa World cup match on its very first day of release.
With the massive production, strong foundation of a storyline which is not only an entertainer but a soulful journey of a man and a nation along with a groovy dose of music numbers, Bharat has won the hearts on its first day itself and the numbers are a testimony. The numbers are huge all over the Hindi film markets with even single screens witnessing an extraordinary turnout from the fans awaiting to see the Salman extravaganza.
Bharat is receiving appreciation from all across and touted to be the ‘biggest film of all times’, the Salman Khan starrer is on its way to chart new records already. The nation saw a fan frenzy and the numbers are proof.
Bharat is produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar under the banner of Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd. and Salman Khan Films, presented by T-Series. The film is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language historical period drama film written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Salman Khan’s Bharat has emerged as a massive force to reckon with. The film has won over the hearts of family audiences across the nation. Bharat’s success is worthy cause unlike his staple Eid releases ‘Bharat’ is a huge exception. Given the fact that the film released on the same day as India’s first World Cup match against South Africa where industry pundits were skeptical on the numbers the Salman Khan starrer would pull, the film opened to an earth-shattering Rs 42.30 cr nett, marking his highest Eid opener beating the previous record help by his own release Sultan at Rs 36.53 cr nett.
The huge opening numbers are also special because Salman was clear he didn’t want distributors to hike the ticket fees which is a regular industry trend for festival releases.
The fact that Bharat released on a Wednesday a weekday which was a break for the usual norm is a reason worth noting. In the past films of big stars that were released on weekdays had not been able to clock such massive numbers. The second day figures of Bharat is Rs 31 cr nett, which indicates the mass appeal the film has got. There is no denying the fact that like cricket, Salman Khan Too has become the nations obsession!
