Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is heading for a 125 crore nett plus extended weekend as the film comes through well on Saturday. The film grossed around 28 crore nett on Saturday which takes the business of the film to 96 crore nett and the film should go over the 30 crore nett mark on Sunday for a four day total somewhere in the range of 125-130 crore nett.
The collections on Saturday have dropped a little compared to Friday but it is a minimal drop and the problem would have been if the drop was in the 10% plus range as then it would have been towards 25 crore nett making a 30 crore nett Sunday difficult and weak trend.
The trend at the moment is good but solid growth on Saturday would have made it an excellent trend and a sure shot for a very big number. The business so far has ensured a HIT and now it will be Monday that will tell what sort of final number the film can go to. The dubbed Tamil and Telegu versions have turned out to be a bit of fiasco as three days will just about cross 1.50 crore nett. The collections were expected to be low as only action films can do a little bit version when dubbed but still not this low.
