Bharat Box Office Collection: Salman Khan's Bharat has been unstoppable at the box office, earning around Rs 130.5 crore in four days of its release, reveal early estimates. Not only has the film done well on its opening day -- by raking in Rs 42.3 crore -- it has worked consistently well throughout the week, despite one of the biggest sporting events, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, going on England.

After earning around Rs 100 crore in the first three days, the film could go to up to Rs 35 crore on Saturday, reported India Today citing early estimates. After breaking several records in just a few days of release, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat is now their second blockbuster after Tiger Zinda Hai. It is also the biggest opener of Salman Khan to date. Salman Khan has set a new record with Bharat's success -- he is the biggest star in Bollywood with maximum films (14) in the coveted Rs 100-crore club. Of these 14 films, three have crossed Rs 300 crore, while two films earned over Rs 200 crore.

However, India-Australia match on June 9 (Sunday) could hurt the film's overall business, opine film business experts.  "Shayad Sunday ko thoda maar kha sakta hai, magar mujhe phir bhi lagta hai ki given the word-of-mouth and the response to the film, Rs 150 crore se upar jaana chahiye extended weekend mein (The film's Sunday earnings could be hurt, but given the word-of-mouth and the overall response, I still believe it would easily cross Rs 150-crore mark in the extended weekend," film trade analyst Amul Mohan told India Today Television.

Bharat's phenomenal success prompted Salman to come out and thank his fans for the overwhelming support. He said this film was his career's biggest opener.
