Kesari 3rd Day Collection: Witnesses Good Jump On Saturday

Kesari 3rd day collection: Akshay Kumar starrer war-drama Kesari witnessed a good jump in the collection on Saturday, earns 18.7 crores.

Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra starrer Kesari witnessed a good jump in the collection on Saturday. It’s been a see-saw ride for Kesari at the box office. After a big opening, the movie dropped on Friday and now witnessed a decent jump on Saturday. It remains to be seen, how it performs in the coming days.

After a huge opening day with the collection of 21.06 crores, the movie by around 22% on its second day and earned just 16.7 crores. On its third day, Kesari saw a growth of around 10% and earned 18.7 crores. The total collection of the movie after three days stands at 56.51 crores.

1st day box office collection: 21.5 crores (Highest of 2019)

2nd day box office collection: 16.7 crores 

3rd day box office collection: 18.7 crores 

The IPL match has affected the collection of the evening and nights shows. In case of no match, the collection would have been 20-21 crores.

Kesari box office collection: weekend estimates

It remains to be seen, how the movie performs on Sunday. There are two big IPL matches today. So, there is a good chance that the evening and nights shows collection would get affected again.

Keeping this in mind, I am expecting Kesari to earn around 21 crores today. This will take the opening weekend total to around 76-77 crores.

I am expecting a big fall on Monday as IPL season is on and Kesari hasn’t been able to deliver on the predicted lines. The movie should enter 100 crore club by the end of the first week. 200 crore is out of the equation now. I am expecting it around 150 crores in its lifetime.

Kesari budget and box office economics

The total budget of the movie is around 100 crores. If will be a hit at 130 crores, super hit at 160 crores and blockbuster at 220 crores lifetime collection.

Directed by Anurag Singh, Kesari is based on one of the bravest battles Battle of Saragarhi, military combat between 21 soldiers of the Sikh Regiment of the British Army and 8,000–12,000 Afghans.
