Bharat was Salman Khan's Eid offering this year and had a blockbuster holiday opening last Wednesday, raking in as much as Rs 42 crore on Day 1. In doing so, Bharat turned out to be Salman Khan's biggest Eid opener and also his biggest opening film ever. Bharat breached the Rs 100 crore mark in just 4 days at the theatres.
Overwhelmed with the response, Salman Khan had tweeted a note of thanks for his fans and cine-goers:
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— Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) June 6, 2019
Bharat successfully endured a clash with the India-South Africa World Cup match on Eid, can be slowed down by the upcoming India vs Pakistan World Cup match, Mr Adarsh had tweeted earlier.
