One of the most awaited films of the year, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is here and the film has scored a great amount on its first day at the Box Office. Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan had a great first day business at the Box Office. The film collected Rs. 26 crore net (260 million) approx. on day one. If compared to Salman Khan’s Kick’s first day business, Bajrangi Bhaijaan surely has raced past it.
However, if compared to another recently released film, Baahubali, which broke all the records at the Box Office, Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan failed to beat its opening record. Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan only managed to earn half of the amount that Baahubali earned at the Box Office overall.
Director S. S Rajamouli’s Baahubali minted Rs. 50 crore net (500 million) approx. on its first day at the Box Office, whereas Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan grossed near to half amount of Baahubali’s opening collections, Rs. 26 crore net (260 million) approx. However, Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan did an excellent business on its day one, compared to other Bollywood films released this year.
Being screened in four different languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam, proved to be a massive advantage for Baahubali, as the film did a record breaking first day business at the Box Office and earned big. Well, last time when Kabir Khan and Salman Khan collaborated, they gave us Ek Tha Tiger, which minted Rs. 32 crore net (320 million) on its first day at the Box Office. Their second collaboration not only failed to break Baahubali’s opening record at the Box Office, but also their last film, Ek Tha Tiger’s day one collections.
Well, Bajrangi Bhaijaan did open to a great start but we have seen better. However, we are expecting Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan to mint more than 30 crore on its second day, Saturday. Going by the reaction the film’s received and is receiving, seems like the film will most likely inch extremely closer to 100 crore mark on its first weekend itself. Let’s see how close Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘s Box Office business gets to Baahubali‘s.
