Bharat got a bumper opening when it hit the screens on June 5 as the big Eid release this year. The film was released to packed theatres across the country and it recorded the second highest opening numbers for any Hindi film. It also emerged as Salman’s biggest opener till date and also the biggest Eid opener. The numbers have seen a dip primarily because after it released on a holiday (Wednesday), the next two days remained working days. Now that the weekend is here, Saturday and Sunday are only expected to add more moolah.
Apart from Salman’s superstardom, several other factors contributed to Bharat’s success at the Box Office. It’s a complete package for mass entertainment. The story of the film treats the audience with drama, action, romance, emotion, friendship, and everything else that attract the family audience to theatres.
