Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat was enjoying a glorious run at the box office, since its release on last Wednesday, on the occasion of Eid. However, the success sprint has come to a drastic fall on Monday, as the film collected only Rs 9.20. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh shared, "Bharat dips, after a long, rich weekend... Will have to speed up on remaining weekdays [Tue to Thu] and also in Weekend 2... Now second highest grosser of 2019, after crossing lifetime biz of Kesari and Total Dhamaal in 6 days."
Currently, Bharat stands at the second position in the highest grossers of 2019. Going by its run at the theatres, the film stands a chance to surpass the lifetime collection of Uri: The Surgical Strike, which made Rs 245.36 crore.
In its extended week one at the box office, Bharat is expected to rake in a total collection of Rs 175 crore. The film has been clashing massively with India’s ICC World Cup schedule and on June 16, India versus Pakistan match may further affect the box office business of Bharat.
Bharat is an official adaption of Korean film, Ode To My Father. The film showcases Salman Khan in five different avatars, as he ages from 18 years to 72 years. Bharat also stars Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani, Nora Fatehi and Aasif Sheikh in key roles. It marks the third collaboration between director Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman Khan after Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Bharat is jointly produced by Salman Khan's sister Alvira Khan Agnihotri, her husband Atul Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan under the Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series banners.
The film received positive reviews, and our editor-in-chief gave the film 3.5 stars and wrote, "Bharat delivers its promise of being an emotional entertainer. Fans who want to see Salman reinvent his superstar image with a solid storyline will be pleased with Bharat."
