Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo opened with a bang at the box office on 12 November. After raking in Rs 40.35 crore on its opening day, the film managed to breach the Rs 100 crore mark in under three days.
On Sunday, four days into its release, the film failed to show any growth. Collections dropped by a 5-7% margin. The film raked in around Rs 28.30 crore on Sunday. Despite this being a higher figure than what most Bollywood films see on their opening day, the drop has come as a disappointment for PRDP.
The collections at two multiplex-dominated markets, Delhi and East Punjab, which saw the lowest collections in the last four days, dropped further on Sunday. Audiences seem to have rejected the film at these two centres.
On Sunday, the Mumbai circuit also witnessed a minor drop, despite the film's record breaking performance in Mumbai over the weekend.
Day-wise box office collections:
- Thursday: Rs 40.35 crore
- Friday: Rs 31.05 crore
- Saturday: Rs 30.07 crore
- Sunday: Rs 28.30 crore
- Total: Rs 129.77
Apart from the metros, the film is running at record capacity in circuits like Bihar, Rajasthan and Gujarat. The Salman Khan-starrer family drama is all set for a long run at the mass areas. However, for the film to cross the coveted Rs 230 crore mark, it will need to register collections above Rs 15 crore on Monday
The film is performing exceptionally in the overseas market and is among the top 5 all-time highest weekends for an Indian film. PRDP, which is Salman Khan's ninth film to enter the Rs 100 crore club, has raked in around $ 8.9 million (Rs 59 crore approx) in its four-day opening weekend.
