Salman Khan's latest film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai earned Rs 59,920 in the box office in its first weekend. While almost all of India watched the film digitally on Tata Sky or Zee5, the film found big screen releases in precisely three halls in the country—in the state of Tripura, where theatres were open. The collection reflects the big screen haul of Radhe that released in these theatres on May 13.
In the Northeastern state of Tripura, the film opened in two halls in the capital city of Agartala, according to the trade website bollywoodhungama.com. These theatres are SSR Rupasi and Balaka Cinema. The third hall where the film had an opening weekend run is SSR Dharmanagar in the town of Dharmanagar.
Between the three theatres, Radhe had 11 shows daily. Owing to night curfew in the state, the last show of the day had to be over by 3pm, the website added.
The overall first weekend collection breaks this way, according to the website: Radhe collected Rs 10,432 on day one (Thursday, May 13). The collections rose to around Rs 22,518 on Friday, while Saturday and Sunday saw collections around Rs 13,485 each, which brought the four-day weekend collection to around Rs. 59,920. All figures, the website added, were approximate.
