The third collaboration of director Ali with Salman Khan had started its third weekend at a dull note and minted the amount of only 0.78 crore on 3rd Friday after a drop of 56.04% as compared to the previous day. Then on 3rd Saturday, despite the India Vs Afghanistan cricket match it took growth and bagged the amount of 1.19 crore.
On the next day i.e 3rd Sunday, with a slight more jump, Bharat garnered the business of 1.68 crores and raised its 19 days total collection to 209.40 crores nett at the domestic box office. As per the current trend, it is expected to cross 211 crores by the end of this week.
