Prem Ratan Dhan Payo grosses $1.65m on first day
It was but obvious that this year’s Diwali release, the Sooraj Barjatya directed Salman-Sonam starrer, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, would embark on a record breaking spree. In fact we had even predicted a 40 crore plus opening day, last week itself, and that is how it has been!
As per reports, PRDP saw the biggest opening day figure of 40 crore plus, thus beating the same record held by Shah Rukh Khan starrer, HAPPY NEW YEAR, established last Diwali. There are indications that the film has also managed a good second day, again taking advantage of Bhai Dooj holiday in parts of North and Central India.
As things stand, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is all set for a huge extended (4-day) weekend and can be as big as 125 crore or more!
The film has also impressed in the overseas. As per the sketchy inputs with us, PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO has grossed nearly $1.65m, on the opening day, that is Thursday.
