Box office: Saaho (Hindi) has good first Monday, Mission Mangal's positive run continues


So far the poor reviews and negative word-of-mouth publicity do not seem to have had any effect on the Prabhas-starrer.

After a good first weekend, the Hindi version of director Sujeeth’s Saaho did well on its first Monday too. The Prabhas-starrer made Rs13.75 crore nett on the day, as reported by BoxOfficeIndia.com.

Saaho had finished the first weekend with Rs79 crore nett. The film does not seem to have been greatly affected by the poor reviews and negative word-of-mouth publicity, either on the weekend or yesterday. The film did benefit, however, from the public holiday in some parts of India yesterday. 

The grand total of Saaho's Hindi version now stands at Rs92.75 crore nett. This is a good collection for the first four days.

Excluding the South numbers for Sunday and Monday, which are not out yet, the film’s all-India total across the Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions comes to Rs184 crore nett. But Saaho was made on a huge budget of Rs350 crore and so the film will have to continue to set a hot pace through the rest of this week if it is to break into the hit zone.

Meanwhile, despite Saaho's release, Mission Mangal continued its good run at the box office. The film, starring Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, has collected Rs11.50 crore nett in its third week so far. It made Rs2.50 crore nett, a good return, on its third Monday.
