Saaho, starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, went on to record the best Sunday of the year 2019 despite negative reviews. The film collected Rs 29.48 crore on third day taking its total to Rs 79 crore, as reported by Boxofficeindia.com.

Saaho (Hindi) has beaten Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh (Rs 27.91 crore), Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal (Rs 27.54 crore) and Salman Khan’s Bharat’s (Rs 27.90 crore) third-day collections.

Sharing the box office figures of the film, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, ”Saaho sets the BO on fire... Shows big gains on Day 3... Packs a phenomenal total in its opening weekend... North and East India are exceptional, other circuits fantastic too... Fri 24.40 cr, Sat 25.20 cr, Sun 29.48 cr. Total: Rs 79.08 cr Nett BOC. India biz. #Hindi version.”

The film released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam simultaneously in India and various parts of the globe. Saaho (Hindi) witnessed a solo opening on Friday with collections of Rs 24.40 crore and went on to become the third highest opener of the year after Bharat and Mission Mangal. However, it showed little growth on Saturday with collections of Rs 25.20 crore.

Comparing Saaho and the Baahubali instalments, Taran wrote, “Prabhas versus #Prabhas [opening weekend biz]...2015: #Baahubali ₹ 22.35 cr. 2017: #Baahubali2 ₹ 128 cr. 2019: #Saaho ₹ 79.08 cr. Nett BOC. India biz. #Hindi version.”

 

A report also states the film, in all languages, collected Rs 88 crore nett and Rs 101 crore gross on the first day which makes it the second film after Bahubali 2: The Conclusion to hit the Rs 100 crore gross mark on day one. Talking about why Saaho should not be compared to Baahubali, film trade analyst Girish Johar had told Hindustan Times, “It would not be fair to compare Saaho with Baahubali. It was a traditional Indian, desi mythological film. Saaho is contemporary, sleek, stylish and upmarket film. Prabhas is a star and is coming after delivering two of the biggest blockbusters but its not right to compare them.”
