Prabhas & Shraddha Kapoor's much-anticipated venture 'Saaho' has hit the theaters on Friday, August 30. 'Saaho' which has been pegged as the 'biggest action thriller of all times' is packed with breathtaking sequences, yet it disappointed fans big time owing to its weak and confusing storyline and inexplicably poor direction. However, despite divided reviews, 'Saaho' has made an impressive start at the box office.
Trade analyst & film critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter on Saturday, August 31, and announced the opening day collection of 'Saaho'. He revealed that the film has grossed Rs. 24.40 crores in Hindi version on day 1. Adarsh said that the numbers are because of Prabhas's superstardom post his appearance in the 'Bahubali' franchise and the hype surrounding the biggie.
Adarsh further revealed that the excellent advance bookings for 'Saaho' has been one of the key factors ensured fantastic numbers. He also suggested that the film's collection over the coming weekend will define its fate.
