Prabhas' Saaho failed to garner positive review from crtitics but that didnot deter the action thriller from making big at the box office. Saaho has collected approximately Rs 331 crore gross at the worldwide box office in four days smashing South Indian's most popular actor Rajinikanth starrer Endhiran and Kabali in just four days.
Prabhas' starrer however has not been able to break the record of Baahubali 2, which has minted Rs 214 crore worldwide on its first day. Saaho managed to collect only half the amount at Rs 125 crore gross at the worldwide box office on day one.
With such earth shattering records Saaho has become the biggest opener of 2019.
Saaho is expected to continue its dream run at the worldwide box office in the coming days too. Considering its current pace of collection it would not be able to smash the record of Baahubali 2, which is all-time highest grossing south Indian film with its lifetime collection of Rs 1740 crore gross. But it should be seen the movie would be able to beat the records of 2.0 (Rs 620 crore gross) and Baahubali 1 (Rs 570 crore gross).
Although, Saaho might not have been able to beat the records of Prabhas' last outing Baahubali 2, but it has matched its performance at RTC X Roads in Hyderabad. Baahubali 2 crossed Rs 1 crore gross at RTC X Roads in four days. Now, the Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer have achieved this feat in four days too.
The Hindi version of Saaho has collected Rs 93.28 crore net at the north Indian box office in four days. Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Saaho collects in double digits on Day 4, aided by #GaneshChaturthi holiday [some parts of #India]... Mass centres strong... Tue-Thu biz crucial... #Saaho Fri 24.40 cr, Sat 25.20 cr, Sun 29.48 cr, Mon 14.20 cr. Total: â‚¹ 93.28 cr Nett BOC. #India biz. #Hindi version."
In just four days, Saaho has become 11th highest grossing Hindi movie of 2019. The movie needed less than Rs 1 crore to beat the record of Luka Chuppi (Rs 94.15 crore net) to land in the 10th rank.
Meanwhile the movie courted controversy after an artist accused it if steaking his work for a song and French director Jérôme Salle calling it a a copy of his film Largo Winch.
