‘Saaho’ Box-Office Report: Prabhas-Shraddha Kapoor starrer is the third highest opener of 2019
Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Saaho’ was one of the most anticipated films of this year, however much, to everyone’s surprise, the film failed to live up to the hype. Critics are bashing the film left, right and centre. However thanks to Prabhas’ crazy fan following and the way the film was promoted over the last few weeks, it’s opening day collection turned out to be a decent number.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced that the action-thriller ‘Saaho’ (Hindi version) has managed to mint around Rs. 24.40 crores approx on its opening day. Now, this is way less what was expected from this Sujeeth’s magnum opus considering the fact that the film was mounted on an estimated budget of Rs. 350 crores approx. Interestingly, despite earning relatively less from what was expected out of it, ‘Saaho’s opening day collection is the third highest opener of this year so far. The first two being Salman Khan‘s ‘Bharat’ and Akshay Kumar‘s ‘Mission Mangal’.
#Saaho has a superb Day 1… Prabhas’ superstardom post #Baahubali2 + hype surrounding the biggie + excellent advance bookings ensured fantastic numbers… Day 2 and 3 biz crucial to pack a solid weekend total… Fri ₹ 24.40 cr Nett BOC. India biz. #Hindi version.

The advance-bookings and the craze for Prabhas helped the film in collecting a decent sum on its day one at the box-office. However going by the kind of not-so-pleasant reviews the film has received, looks like it will struggle in the coming days at the ticket window. Now it has to be seen how the film fares at the box-office in the coming days.
