Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's much-anticipated venture 'Bharat' released on Wednesday, June 5 and it has been widely praised by the audience. The film, which created history as Salman's highest opener ever, has now achieved yet another feat by crossing the Rs. 50 crore mark in just two days of its release. It has managed to gross over Rs. 73 crores within two days.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and revealed the same. Sharing the box office collection of the film in a recent Twitter post, he stated that multiplexes saw a normal decline, while the film's evening and night shows witnessed a high occupancy, especially in single-screen cinemas. With an opening day collection of Rs. 42.30 crore, 'Bharat' minted around Rs. 31 crore on its second day, thus taking its grand total to Rs. 73.30 crore and paving its way to the Rs. 50 crore club.
In the post, he wrote, "#Bharat puts up a big total on Day 2 [the working day after #Eid holiday]... Plexes saw a normal decline, while single screens held fort... Saw excellent occupancy in evening/night shows... Overall, 2-day total is superb... Wed 42.30 cr, Thu 31 cr. Total: ₹ 73.30 cr. India biz."

Earlier, on Thursday, Salman, who was overwhelmed with the audiences' response to his film, had taken to his Twitter handle to thank them for giving him his career's biggest opener. In the post, he had revealed that what made Salman Khan the happiest was people standing up to the national anthem played in the middle of his film.
In the post, he wrote, "Big thk u sabko fr giving sabse bada opening mere career ka par what made me the happiest & proudest is ki during a scene in my film jab national anthem is recited ev1 stood up as a mark of respect. There could be no bigger respect for our country than this... Jai Hind #Bharat"

As per media reports, his last two Eid releases, 'Tubelight' and 'Race 3' had a lackluster start at the box office. By raking in Rs 42.30 crore on its first day, 'Bharat' proved to be both Salman's biggest Eid opener as well as his highest ever opener ever. Adarsh had earlier shared that the film's opening day moolah has surpassed that of Salman's hit films including 'Tiger Zinda Hai' (Rs 34.10 crore), 'Sultan' (Rs 36.54 crore) and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Rs 40.35 crore).
