Amitabh Bachchan-Ajay Devgn starrer "Satyagraha" is still doing decent business at the Indian box office.
The film collected approximately ₹60 crore at the end of the second weekend. "#Satyagraha collected Rs 5.26 cr nett in its Weekend 2. Breakup: Fri 1.28 cr, Sat 1.72 cr, Sun 2.26 cr. Grand total: Rs 60.69 cr net," film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Satyagraha" crossed the ₹50-crore mark at the Indian box office in just six days of its release. The film collected around ₹11 crore on its first day. Its business picked up over the debut weekend and it earned approximately ₹39 crore at the domestic box office.
The collections dropped during the weekdays, but the film managed to cross the ₹50-crore mark. Expressing happiness over the film's success, director Prakash Jha told Hindustantimes.com, "It feels great to see that a film like Satyagraha, which is a political film, has crossed Rs. 50 crore at the ticket windows in the first week itself."
In its second weekend (6-8 September), "Satyagraha" collections have been largely affected by new release "Shuddh Desi Romance" (SDR), starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra and new comer Vaani Kapoor. The business of the political thriller flick is likely to decline in the coming days, as "SDR" has become the first choice of the public visiting theatres.
"Satyagraha" is a socio-political film which is reportedly based on the movement that Anna Hazare started against corruption. The film has a big star cast Including Amitabh, Ajay, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Amrita Rao, Manoj Bajpai and Arjun Rampal.
