Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor's Rs. 350-crore mega film 'Saaho' sets the opening weekend box-office collection on fire as the film collects Rs. 79.08 crore. 'The biggest action thriller of all time' has definitely made a terrific start despite poor reviews by both the critics and audience. The film was rated 2/5 on Republic World as it miserably failed to create an impact with its poor screenplay.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to reveal the numbers and believe it or not, with Sunday figures, Prabhas' 'Saaho' has become the highest Sunday grosser of 2019. With exceptional performance in the North and East India, the film collected Rs. 29.48 crores on Sunday, taking the total collection of Hindi version to Rs. 79.08 crores after three days.
Taran Adarsh also compared Prabhas' earlier figures of Baahubali's opening weekend and 'Saaho' has definitely maintained the buzz and raked in an impressive number at the box-office. Take a look at the tweets -
