Looks like hiking the ticket prices way too much has cost Salman Khan on the box-office front! The actor, whose new Eid-release ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ was being touted as the biggest release of this year failed to create the much-known Salman Khan magic on the first day of its release!
The movie collected 27.25 Cr on Friday, which is way less than Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ which collected 44.97 Cr on its opening day. This record got shattered by ‘Baahubali’ last week; which collected 50 Cr on its opening day! In fact, the movie even failed to beat Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Bang Bang!’ and Ajay Devgn’s ‘Singham Returns’’ first-day box-office collections!
However, given the fact that the Indo-Pak film released pre-Eid, there are expectations that the movie would collect huge money at the box office today, on Eid!
On the other hand, the Hindi version of ‘Baahubali’ crossed the 50 Cr-mark by collecting 3.25 Cr on Friday.
