Despite of a one sided clash with Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal, Vicky Kaushal’s Sam Bahadur has managed a make a hefty collection of Rs 10.30 crore at box office India on day 3. First weekend collection of this Meghana Gulzar directorial currently stands at Rs 25.55 crore and although this looks poor to some, but the film has managed to leave its mark at the domestic market quite well.
Producers of Sam Bahadur are not looking worried at all, because the budget of this film is only Rs 55 crore and even if it manages to earn around Rs 40 crore through its lifetime run in cinemas, still the film will be profitable because of the sale of its satellite rights along with OTT rights.
At the national chains of India, Sam Bahadur has made a income of Rs 6.70 crore on Day 3, which includes Rs 5.30 crore from PVR INOX and Rs 1.40 crore from Cinepolis. The film is shining a lot at the multiplexes and public reviews are doing wonders for its collections.
A huge decline is expected in Sam Bahadur’s collection on Monday as the film might lose a lot of screens in the small town cinemas, but the public feedback is going to be the deciding factor for this film in the next four days.
Right now we can say it with full surety that Sam Bahadur will not join the Rs 100 crore club at box office, but it is a undeniable fact that after URI: The Surgical Strike, this is the best Vicky Kaushal film till date in terms of public response.
