Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (PRDP), which released after Diwali is a huge a box office collections success having raked in a massive Rs 231.56 cr by day 8 in the domestic market and foreign markets together (it released on Thursday). The Sooraj Barjatiya directed PRDP opened with a bang and continued its run in the theatres without any hindrance.
However, having said that, While PRDP has been making waves as the highest opening day grosser of 2015 at Rs 40.35 cr, it has not been able to beat the other top release of Salman Khan, namely Bajrangi Bhaijaan in terms of opening week’s collections. In a head to head bout, PRDP has come off second best, literally.
Surprisingly, despite positive word of mouth, not forgetting the extended festive weekend that the film enjoyed, PRDP comes in second on the opening week collections list having grossed Rs 172.82 crore, missing the top slot to Salman’s earlier release Bajrangi Bhaijaan that collected Rs. 184.62 crore.
However, PRDP does manage to surpass Salman Khan’s other releases like Kick that collected Rs. 164.09 crore, Ek Tha Tiger that collected Rs. 154.21 crores and Bodyguard that collected Rs 115 crore.
Take a look at the opening week PRDP box office collections as compared to Salman Khan’s previous releases:
