Prem Ratan Dhan Payo saw a drop of collections on day eight as it grossed around the 3.75-4 crore nett mark. This was expected as North India was weak after day one and the films that really sustain well tend to be strong in North. Mumbai circuit tends to fall off outside Gujarat as a film goes into week two. The same has happened here with the Gujarat fall coming as collections were at very high levels on the weekdays.
Gujarat / Saurashtra has fallen but from its lofted levels but still collections are good. Normally it would be an 17-18 crore nett second weekend for the film but that has to seen as the growth is driven by Delhi and Punjab but here the film is not doing that well in these areas.
The average performance in some areas has meant that the business of the film on day eight is the third highest of the year after Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Tanu Weds Manu Returns when it really should have been the second highest.
