On Wednesday, it was the Eid holiday that made it earn that much. A good chunk of movies fail to earn that much in their lifetime which is earned on its opening. But, Thursday was just a regular working day, and it still managed to do a very good business. So, it seems that it has refused to slow down.
The directorial venture of Ali Abbas Zafar has made over Rs 73 crores in its first two days of run at the Indian BO alone. Though it started on a slow note yesterday, it increased to around 70% occupancy rate in the evening and night shows. Upon its release, it got a mixed bag of reviews.
Meanwhile, Hollywood’s big franchise’s next film X-Men: Dark Phoenix starring Sophie Turner in the lead role also released alongside Bharat. It got a screen count of around 1480 in India and earned Rs 3.10 crores on its first day. Whereas, Salman’s movie has got over 4300 screens in India and close to 1700 screens overseas.

Bharat 3rd Day Collection
Before starting, you should note that it is coming from a national holiday (Eid ul-Fitr) and then partial holiday on Thursday, so a drop on Friday/3rd day is expected.
On Friday, today, it started with on a slow note as it just registered an average occupancy of around 18% in the morning shows. But, eventually, it increased to over 40% in the noon shows as the family audience started to come out to watch the Bharat movie. The occupancy is okayish.
