Back in 2016 when Baaghi had been released, it had collected Rs. 77 crores during its lifetime and remained the highest-grossing Bollywood film of the year. In 2020, Tiger Shroff proved he could carry an entire movie with a strong opening weekend performance. Now that he’s established himself as a bankable star, Baaghi 3 has nearly earned 75% what his first blockbuster pulled in – all in just 5 days!
Despite an anticipated fever spreading throughout India during this time of the year, the movie has hit impressive numbers at just its first weekend in theaters. With less than two days being accounted for out of the entire first week, director Ahmed Khan managed to earn 16 crore rupees – nearly matching the earnings from Baaghi 3 from its opening day!
Moreover, because today is also Holi (a Hindu festival) when people paint each other with colors and play games together, there were large crowds at theaters eager to see how the country fares against public health risk – hence driving up revenues even further! This makes it highly likely that unless viewers choose otherwise by avoiding cinemas all together, we’ll have yet another landmark record breaker soon enough since this project currently sits close to crossing over 70 million rupees!
