Much like Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Son Of Sardar too has fared exceptionally well in it’s first 3 day weekend. The film was outstanding in the North, with occupancy as good as Ek Tha Tiger at places!
The film has not only matched a much bigger release like JTHJ, but also beaten the SRK starrer in a few territories. The gap between the two films was widest on it’s first day, but with good word-of-mouth at mass centres, SOS has reduced the gap to just 2 crores on Day 3 (Thursday).
Son Of Sardar Weekend Box Office Collections (day wise)
- Tuesday (Day 1) – 10.72 crore
- Wednesday (Day 2) – 16.21 crore
- Thusday (Day 3) – 12.2 crore
- Weekend Total – 39.13 crore (Ajay Devgn’s highest first weekend total, going past Bol Bachchan)
On Day 4 (Friday), Son Of Sardar dropped by around 30-40% at multiplexes. Business remained rock-steady on single-screens. As per early estimates, the Friday collections is likely to around 8.75 crore nett taking the 4 day total to approx 48 crores.
It remains to be seen how well Son Of Sardar performs over the next two days. 6 day extended weekend of 70-75 crores looks likely – which is massive, since it released with one of the year’s most hyped films.
