Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan-starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has kept its box office momentum going by minting Rs 31.03 crore on day 2. The Sooraj Barjatya-directed film made a record collection of Rs 40.35 crore on its release day on November 12.
“The film has witnessed only 23% drop over its release day. In merely two days of its release, the film has collected Rs 71.38 crore,” the makers said in a statement.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo marks Salman’s collaboration with the director and his banner, Rajshri Films after a gap of 16 years.
The romantic-drama also stars Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar, Armaan Kohli and sees the comeback of the 49-year-old Dabangg star’s much-loved character, ‘Prem’.
Earlier this year, Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan took an opening of nearly Rs 27.25 crore and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is expected to make more than that at the box office.
