While the Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho opened to an earth shattering response across India on its first day, let us see if it was able to beat the first day collections of previous Prabhas starrer Bahubali 2.
Saaho is one of the highly anticipated action drama of 2019 as it is the next Prabhas starrer who had already won immense popularity due to the Bahubali films and also it is one of the most expensive film of India, made at an eye-popping production budget of Rs 350 crore. Saaho had surpassed all expectations from its mind-blowing trailer and first look which boast off some eye-popping action stunts.
A power-punch of action abs what not, Shraddha Kapoor totally kicks some ass in Saaho’s trailer. The actress is playing a crime branch officer in the film.
Saaho is being directed by Sujeeth and will be the debut film of Prabhas in Hindi while it will be Shraddha Kapoor’s debut in South Indian cinema. Saaho has opened to a fabulous response with 40-45% occupancy in the morning shows. The collections picked slightly in the evening and night shows but also got impacted in few places due to the delay in prints reaching theater on time. As per early estimates, Saaho opened to some where between Rs 24 crores which is better than Bahubali (Rs 4.25 crore) but lesser than Bahubali 2 (Rs 40.50 crore)
Though the reviews are not good, but Saaho minted somewhere between Rs 75-80 crore in all languages and crossed the first day collections of Aamir Khan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan, which minted Rs 52.50 crore in all language version and even Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 (Rs 60 crore), and should be able to do well in long extended weekend as Monday will be a holiday owing to Ganesh Chathurthi festival.
Bahubali 2 (2017)
Bahubali 2 opened to a record breaking opening on its first day across India and in almost every language. The S.S Rajamouli directed war drama opened to an eye opening Rs 40.50 crore just in Hindi language while it minted an electrifying Rs 126 crore in all languages.
