MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (MSDTUS) passed the Monday test and made decent collection at the Indian box office. But the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer just missed to cross Rs 75 crore mark in four days.

MS Dhoni: The Untold Story collected Rs 66 crore net at the Indian box office in its opening weekend. Trade expert predicted that the strong word of mouth would help the movie do well at the ticket counters on weekdays too. Even if its collection drops by 50 percent on Monday, the film would surpass Rs 75 crore mark in the domestic market in four days. But it failed to do it with a small margin.

When compared to its opening day collection, the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer witnessed over 60 percent drop on Monday. MS Dhoni: The Untold Story collected Rs 8.51 crore on its fourth day taking its domestic net total to Rs 74.51 crore. Taran Adarsh ‏tweeted: "#MSDhoniTheUntoldStory has a STRONG Mon. Passes the 'Mon test'... Fri 21.30 cr, Sat 20.60 cr, Sun 24.10 cr, Mon 8.51 cr. Total: ₹ 74.51 cr."

The producers are delighted over the performance of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story at the ticket counters in the domestic market on Monday. "The movie has registered big numbers and passed the Monday test. The film collected 8.51 crore on Monday, taking its total business to Rs 74.51 crore! A huge week one on the cards," says source close to the production team.

MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has four days to complete its opening week at the ticket counters. If it runs at the current speed, the movie is likely to collect over Rs 24 crore on the following weekdays. The film is expected to collect over Rs 98.50 crore nett at the Indian box office in the first week and it would cross Rs 100 crore mark on its second Friday.
