Box office report: 'Bodyguard' rakes in a whopping Rs. 100 crore

The writing is on the wall. Salman Khan is a surefire money-minter at box office. His latest release Bodyguard has raked in whopping returns in the first extended weekend of its release.

On its opening day itself, Bodyguard broke the first-day collection record by touching the Rs. 20 crore mark, surpassing the opening day collection of Salman’s last year’s hit Dabangg. Now, Bodyguard boasts of the best ever weekend for any Hindi film.

The movie has netted about Rs. 86 crore in the first four days from the Indian market alone. If you add to this the movie’s collections from abroad, the figure surpasses the Rs. 100 crore mark. This is way above the first week collections of Dabangg (Rs. 81 crore) and 3 Idiots (Rs. 80 crore).

There was no let up in the audience response during the long weekend following the film’s release on Wednesday. Though many critics have slammed the movie, the footfalls continued to pour in.

Faced with stiff competition from Bodyguard, the other two releases of the week, That Girl In Yellow Boots and Bol hardly drew any crowd, though both the films got critical appreciation.

The coming Friday would see the release of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, starring Imran Khan, Katrina Kaif and Ali Zafar. The movie is expected to have a good start at the box office. However, it remains to be seen if Bodyguard will eat into its business.
