Salaar box office collection day 4: Prabhas’ long-awaited comeback is complete, to sprint past Rs 450 cr worldwide mark today

Salaar box office collection day 4: Prabhas' action-thriller passed the Rs 250 crore mark in India, and is about to shoot past the Rs 450 crore mark across the world in just four days of release.

The Prabhas-starrer Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire witnessed a bump in box office collections on Christmas Day, as it continued to outperform Shah Rukh Khan’s Dunki in India and across the world. Directed by Prashanth Neel, Salaar is estimated to have earned Rs 42 crore on its fourth day of release, passing the crucial Monday test with flying colours, even if it was aided by a holiday. Salaar’s Rs 42 crore Monday haul is bigger than those delivered by Jawan, Leo and Gadar 2 earlier this year, but marginally short of the Rs 43 crore that Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal earned on day four.

Salaar box office collection in India has now passed the Rs 250 crore mark after four days, and is fast approaching the Rs 450 gross mark worldwide. It is now safe to say that Prabhas has finally delivered his long-awaited comeback, after a string of high-profile flops following Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. After starring in those blockbuster films, Prabhas delivered the big-budget flops Saaho, Radhe Shyam and Adipurush.

Salaar’s primary market seems to be Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The film’s Telugu version reported an overall occupancy of 63% on day four, as compared to 34% in Malayalam, 23% in Tamil, 35% in Hindi and 45% in Kannada; the latter happens to be director Neel’s home territory. But unlike Animal, which worked unusually well in the Telugu region for a Bollywood movie, presumably because of director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s pull, Salaar is still playing like a Prabhas vehicle, despite the involvement of Neel, and Malayalam stalwart Prithviraj Sukumaran.

Globally, the film finished at the number three spot on the weekend box office chart, behind Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and Wonka. Dunki, which has made approximately Rs 250 crore worldwide, took the number four spot. The comedy drama, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, made a strong Rs 22 crore on Monday, its fifth day in theatres, taking its total collections in India to Rs 128 crore.
