The 'Brahmastra' juggernaut refuses to stop or even slow down. The Ayan Mukerji film capitalized on a strong opening and grew further on day 2, amassing £8.5 million worldwide on Saturday. This means, the film has taken its total worldwide gross over two days to £16 million, sparking speculations about a possible £25 million weekend. The Hindi version has done very well but it’s the dubbed versions that are springing up surprises with the film managing to create a record in Tamil Nadu on Saturday.
On Sunday afternoon, the film’s official Twitter account tweeted a graphic, indicating that it had earned £16 million in two days worldwide. “Thank you to all our audiences, for spreading Love and Light in Cinemas this weekend,” read part of the tweet. On Saturday, they had shared the film’s opening day worldwide gross to be £7.5 million.
The film was dubbed in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada as well, and all four versions are doing well. The Telugu version was expected to do well due to Nagarjuna’s presence in the film and SS Rajamouli having presented the film. But it’s the film’s business in Tamil Nadu that has surprised one and all. As per a report in Sacnilk, 'Brahmastra' did business of £190,000 in Tamil Nadu on Saturday, which is the highest single-day earning by a Bollywood film in the state, beating 'War and Thugs of Hindostan'.
