The action-drama Salaar, starring Prabhas and Prithviraj Sukumaran, is witnessing a constant dip in its box office collection. The film entered its second week on Friday and saw a substantial drop from its first Friday, when it opened in theatres with a collection of Rs 90.7 crore.
Salaar’s box office collection on the eighth day was Rs 9.62 crore by 9 pm, according to industry tracker Sacnilk. This brings the film’s total nett collection in India to Rs 317.62 crore.
The craze around Prabhas helped the film earn Rs 110.48 crore in the Hindi-speaking belt alone, where the audience also had the option to watch Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki, which was released just a day ahead of Salaar.
On Friday, the film had the maximum occupancy in the Telugu-speaking states (27.11%). The Malayalam occupancy was 17.17% and Tamil occupancy was 19.32%. Film trade expert Manobala Vijayabalan shared that the movie has earned Rs 542.63 crore globally. This is the seventh film of the year to cross the Rs 500 crore mark worldwide after Pathaan, Jawan, Leo, Gadar 2, Jailer and Animal.
