The film’s weekday numbers could be indicative of a sudden drop in the buzz among people about the film. It had earned about Rs 100 crore on its opening day and zoomed past the Rs 300 crore mark by the end of the first weekend.
It has to be noted that the movie was made on a humongous budget of Rs 350 crore, making it the second-most expensive Indian film so far. As Saaho heads into its second week, it remains to be seen if the film manages to hold its ground or witness massive drops from its 1st week collection.
