After a positive opening day that saw 12.8 crore coming in, Bajirao Mastani showed a good jump on Saturday. The collections were to the tune of 15.52 crore and as a result of that the film has now accumulated 28.32 crore.
The film has seen good appreciation and that is further translating in good footfalls, especially amongst the elite. That said, collections like these can’t be possible without patronage from the masses and since there is good ammunition in there for that segment of audience, the film is finding its place at the Box Office.
Of course, the clash with Dilwale means the numbers are lesser than what they should ideally have been. However, as is the case with both the films, it is the lure of three open weeks which was the sheer reason for them to arrive on this date. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Eros affair has its eye set on a long haul and that is what would eventually decide how far does it go from this point on.
As of now, the indications are correct and the signals are all there for the film to hold on well in days to follow.
