Salman's Bharat crosses Rs. 100 crore mark in the first 4 days of its release

Bharat's Friday collection was Rs 21 crore, also remarkable, given it was a working day, taking its three-day total to Rs 95 crore.

There was a jump in the movie's Saturday collections, with the film earning Rs 27 crore on its 4th day, taking its total to Rs 122 crore.

While the film's business is among the best from Bollywood this year, and in fact, among the best opening weekends for Khan too, it has failed to create the kind of frenzy Avengers: Endgame did in April.

The Marvel flick collected Rs 100 crore in 2 days, finishing its 1st weekend with Rs 157 crore.

Made at a budget of Rs 100 crore to 110 crore, the film can now start booking profits for the producers.

Usually, a film which opens well, and sustains its business over the first weekend goes on to make double of what it collects in the first three days.

Since Bharat had a five-day opening weekend (it released on a Wednesday as opposed to a traditional release on Friday), it could collect something in the range of Rs 250 crore throughout its lifetime (the thumb rule is to consider four to six weeks at the cinemas).

The film is based on a South Korean film Ode To My Father and much like the original, Bharat follows the history of the country through the eyes of a common man, in this case the titular character.

It was released in 4,700 screens, which is the norm for a big Bollywood festival release.
