Bharat was somewhat steady on its first Tuesday. The film collected approx 8.30 crores and the drop is only about 10% from yesterday.
The drop is not that huge however the film had already faced a significant drop on Monday. Hence it needed to hold better in the renaming weekdays. Also the film's collection were affected by two Cricket matches in the extended opening weekend so hold should have better.
The total collection of the film now stands at 167.60 crores in first seven days. It will finish the opening extended week at 180 crore which is a very good number. The film has already crossed the lifetime business of last year's big releases like Race 3, Thugs of Hindustan and Zero.
Bharat lifetime gross is likely to be over 200 crores nett which is not a bad total. However the expectations from Salman Khan and Eid combo are always much higher. For such films, the benchmark should be 300 crores.
