Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is set for its worst day on Sunday as it found it tough going with business expected to fall. The best case scenario will be collections likely to come out the same as Saturday but its more likely that collections are around 26 crore nett which would mean a four day weekend of around 122.50 crore nett. Its a huge number and ensures a hit film but no growth on Sunday means sustaining at good levels may be hard on weekdays
The damage is being done in Delhi city and East Punjab as the collections drop in the area again. At Saturday levels you would have expected good growth in these areas but it seems that this belt has rejected the film. The fear will be if these markets crash on Monday then the film may fold up pretty quickly.
The scenario is totally different in UP which is also a part of North India as it has all time record collections even beating Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Its similar situation in Rajasthan, CP Berar, CI, Gujarat / Saurashtra, Bihar and Maharashtra. The all India number is huge but the territorial business ranges from blockbuster to hit to average and the areas where it is average carry a lot of weight in the long run.
