After a grand opening collection of Rs 42.30 crore on June 5, Bharat saw a major decline on Thursday and Friday and collected Rs 31 crore and Rs 22.20 crore respectively. The decline could be blamed on working weekdays as Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial soared at the box office again over the weekend and earned Rs 26.70 and Rs 27.90 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The film has been on a downward slip since Monday. Registering a whopping 55% drop on Monday, Bharat collected Rs 9.20 crore followed by Rs 8.30 crore on Tuesday. It made a total of Rs 167.60 crore in the first week.
The film, nonetheless, has made a few records in the process. It is Salman Khan’s biggest opener, the biggest Bollywood opener of 2019 and second biggest opener of 2019.
