Bharat was off to a good start. The Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer had registered a spot in the Rs 100-crore club even before their first weekend concluded. The movie, which released on Wednesday courtesy the Eid celebrations, was released earlier than the traditional Friday release hence helping the movie achieve the milestone early. However, it seems like the movie's pace at the box office is slowing down. The movie ended its first week with a collection of Rs 161 crores nett. 

Box Office India reports that the movie is out of a rough start on its Day 8. The movie, which entered its second week on Wednesday, collected Rs 6.25 crore nett. This places Bharat's box office collection to Rs 167.25 crore. The movie witnessed a 20% drop as compared to Day 7 box office collection. Bharat had registered Rs 7.75 crores on Tuesday. The box office numbers do not appear to look up for the coming week. The box office site reports that Bharat's performance at the box office will take a hit as big cricket matches are scheduled to take place this week. "It can turn out to be a big struggle post the extended first week," the publication writes. 

While we are yet to see how much this Salman Khan Eid release earns, the actor is already preparing for next Eid. The actor will take over Eid 2020 with Alia Bhatt in Inshallah. The movie is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The actor-director duo reunite after 11 years.

Again it seems that a superstar has interfered into the scripting process. Surprised as Ali Abbas Zafar had given us such great films as Sultan and Tiger 2. But something seriously went wrong with this film. The film has no plot besides salman just working random jobs. Also Salman playing the 70 year old character, you think he could've at least tried acting a little bit older, besides just the voice.

yes audience are loving kat and her best performance that its a huge flop.

If you think this is bad, wait for Inshallah. Audiences are totally burnt out from watching Alia.

Salman fans and Shahrukh fans alike rush to go see their movies in the first couple days, so they brag about bumper openings or whatever. You have to wait until regular people decide to go when they have free time is when a movie becomes a hit or flop.

No, no, don't say that, it's running houseful everywhere and is a Blockbuster, because its a Katrina movie.

That's true ! Audience are loving Katrina.
