Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo had performed phenomenally on the opening day at the Indian Box Office with an occupancy rate of 70-80%. The Rajshri film did dip a little on day 2 but considering it was a working day, Friday, the film has done exceptionally well.
The Sooraj Barjatya-Salman Khan combination has worked well for the film for the duo are back together after a gap of 16 years and the fact that it is a clean film has drawn more family audiences.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo released in over 5600 screens worldwide, 4500 in India and 1100 overseas! Salman's last film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan grossed Rs 27.25 crores on the opening day and nearly Rs 320-crore pan India. Taran Adarsh reported that Prem Ratan Dhan Payo's net collection from the Hindi version is Rs 40.5 crores while the joint collection from Tamil and Telugu was only Rs 1.50 crores. So the net income on day one is Rs 42 crores.
Salman beat his previous opening day records but failed to beat Shahrukh's Happy New Year record (Rs 45 Cr), #HNY45crPRDP42cr was even trending at the top. Taran Adarsh reported the day two collections, "#PremRatanDhanPayo Thu 40.35 cr, Fri 31.03 cr. Total: ₹ 71.38 cr. Hindi version. India biz. Should cross ₹ 100 cr today [Sat]. TERRIFIC!"
This brings the total from 2 days to Rs 72.38 crores and since the third day is a Saturday, the film will easily grossed big sum and cross Rs 100 crores by the end of 3 days. Adding the collections from Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will be minting money at the Box Office.
