Saaho (Hindi) collected huge numbers on day one in Hindi with 24 crore nett apprx on its first day. This was with the film getting late deleviry of prints affecting practically every circuit. Even places in Maharashtara and Gujarat were affected. The film has higher numbers than Mission Mangal which was a holiday release across practically every Hindi circuit except Mumbai and West Bengal
It is the third best number for a Hindi film this year and that is with 10-12% of the market missing in South and the release issues. It comfortably beat the numbers of films like Kesari, Kabir Singh and Total Dhamaal. The best performance for the film is Gujarat / Saurashtra, Bihar and Odisha. Odisha has seen an all time record with the Hindi version set to be around 90 lakhs nett and the circuit likely to go much higher due to a big Telugu release also.
These numbers are simply huge for a dubbed film and the collections would be 30 crore nett plus if was released like other Hindi films and had no release issues. The reports are not there for the film but it remains to be seen how it behaves today and tomorrow. Despite the negativity the collections in the Hindi market are far above realistic expectations from the film as no matter what what the film is a dubbed Telugu film without the the goodwill og a Bahubali and no big Hindi star like Akshay Kumar which 2.0 had. Its a different matter whether the film can go from here like those films did.
The film has also put up extradordinary numbers in Nizam / Andhra and Karnataka and the all India breakdown will given later. It is easily the second highest opening day pan India with total collections which could cross 80 crore nett.
Our Bollywood "superstars" and global stars should commit mass hara-kiri. Prabhas has fully reaped his sow and all the goodwill from the Baahubai exposure and now showing the Hindi "superstars" their true value.
The biggest box office draw in pan India right now by far, hands down! The movie may well end up failing but the box office star power was shown like a freaking boss.
