Salman Khan’s Bodyguard has broken all records for the opening weekend, making a total of Rs. 83.50 crore (all-Indian net collections) over its first weekend at the box-office. The film, which opened to record-breaking houses on Wednesday (August 31), saw festive crowds and fans pouring into theatres in large numbers in spite of the mixed reports it got. By any standards, the opening weekend’s collections are superb. In fact, Bodyguard will go down in history as the fastest grosser till now.
After the opening day’s collection of Rs. 20.50 crore (all-India net), the Salman Khan starrer went ahead and scored at the box-office by adding Rs. 17.50 crore on Thursday, Rs. 12 crore (Friday), Rs. 13.50 crore (Saturday) and Rs. 20 crore (Sunday) to its kitty. Point to note is that Bodyguard has surpassed the entire first week’s (7 days) collections of Dabangg (Rs. 81 crore) in its first weekend (5 days)!
