Khiladi 786 Has Growth On Saturday

Khiladi 786 managed to grow around 10% on Saturday as compared to Friday. The collections on Saturday will be in the 9.25-9.50 crore nett range adding to the 8.50 crore nett on Friday giving it a two day total of 17 crore nett approx.

The growth is mainly due to the fact that collections in Delhi/UP, East Punjab, West Bengal and Mysore were very low on Friday and all these circuits have added in the 10-30% range on Saturday.
