Priyanka, Deepika, and Ranveer Singh’s Bajirao Mastani enjoyed a good opening in the domestic market despite smaller screen count and tough competition from enormous Dilwale. Like the other release Dilwale, this film also received average-good rating from critics, but strong word of mouth publicity helped it in amassing a good total on its opening day.
As per the box office reports, the movie garnered about 13 crores on its first Friday. The film didn’t perform like the other release Dilwale because it was released to a limited number of screens and single screens outside Maharashtra region didn’t get good footfalls. The movie is enjoying better rating from the real moviegoers as compared to Dilwale. As per the online ticket booking portal bookmyshow, it got 4.2/5 rating from users whereas Dilwale got only 3.3/5. So, the movie is supposed to grow further on Saturday and Sunday and it might post 45-50 crores in the very first weekend.
