Bharat has fair numbers Overseas with collections likely to finish in the $6.75-7 million range over the extended weekend. An event film should really have bigger numbers but a film named Bharat and released on Eid is not exactly going to set the Overseas markets on fire and that has what has happened. The benefit of Eid gets subdued because of the name of the film.
The big markets on Eid are Gulf and United Kingdom but they have a heavy Pakistani audience and that audience will stay away (or come in limited numbers) for a film named Bharat no matter who the actor. Gulf and United Kingdom are still comparatively the best markets but lower than what they should be on Eid. All Overseas markets get affected when the Pakistani audience stays away but Gulf and United Kingdom are affected the most.
The big four markets have done $5.9 million apprx as can be seen by the apprx figures below. The rest of overseas will in the $750k - $1million range.
United Kingdom - £575,000
USA / Canada - $1,850,000
Gulf - $3,000,000
Australia - A$400,000
The worldwide figures over the extended five day weekend are around 218 crore with India giving 170 crore and Overseas adding 48 crore. The Overseas business will probably under perform as against the India business and be a lag on the worldwide total.
sateesh ..is it blockbuster or all time blockbuster?

Bharat Box Office: Enters Salman Khan’s Highest Grossing List Of All Time; Crosses Dabangg & One More Film
Bharat has now entered the list of Top 10 Grosser list of Salman Khan.
By Koimoi.com Team -June 10, 2019
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Bharat has done really well in the first extended weekend as it has edged past the 150 crores mark. The film earned 42.30 crores net on its first day and ended the weekend at a total of 150.10 crores nett.
Bharat has now entered the list of Top 10 Grosser list of Salman Khan as it has surpassed the lifetime collections of Dabangg (138.88 crores) and Bodyguard (142.00 crores).
It has just been 5 days since the release of Bharat and the film is already the 9th highest grosser of Salman Khan. In the upcoming few days, it will be challenging the lifetime business of films like Dabangg 2 (158.50 crores), Race 3 (169 crores) and Ek Tha Tiger (198 crores).
Looking at the current trends, the film is certain to cross 200 crores mark and with this, it will become Salman’s 6th film to achieve the milestone. However, the real challenge will be to go beyond at least 250 crores mark and score as much as possible from there.
Check out the Top 10 Grossers of Salman Khan:
Next few days are extremely crucial for the film as they will decide if Bharat stands a chance of surpassing the big records or not.
Bharat which is the remake of Korean film Ode To My Father talks about the journey of a nation and a man together as he sets on to fulfill his promise with his father. Apart from Salman and Katrina, the film also stars Disha Patani and Sunil Grover. Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman Khan have come together for this film after Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. The film also marks the comeback of Ali and Katrina after Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and TZH.
Bharat recorded the ninth highest first wee of all time at 161 crore nett . The top first weeks are dominated by the Khans with only four non Khan films in the list of the top fifteen films. Then out of the these 11 Khan films, seven are Salman Khan starrers. It means also half the top fifteen first weeks belong to Salman Khan starrers.
There are four films which are above 200 crore nett which is probably the mark to hit for a blockbuster film today. Bharat has a good numbers for seven days but is 20% short of that blockbsuter level. The first seven day numbers are just a little higher than Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Kick but these films were released in 2015 and 2014 respectively and teh GROSS numbers of Bharat will be lower thn both Prem Rata Dhan payo and Kick.
Bahubali - The Conclusion remains the target at almost 250 crore nett but with an average collection of around 35 crore nett per day for the first seven days it remains a distant dream for anyone to match at the moment. The top fifteen opening week of all time are as follows.
Bharat has clocked up around 290 crore at the box worldwide till date and is probably looking at a finish of 300 crore. It should probably go to a 310 crore finish but it a lot depend on the third Friday in India. The business in India is not huge but still is decent enough. The Overseas numbers are not quite there but that was always a likely scenario with a film called Bharat releasing on Eid.
The Pakistani audience which is a big chunk of the Overseas and it becomes even bigger on Eid are never going to come out for a film called Bharat in big numbers and that is what has happened. United Kingdom is going to fall short of £1 million which is poor for Eid.
Gulf will cross $4 million which looks good on paper but is not a good number for Eid even though its easily the best number in Gulf this year and will even finish in the same range as blockbusters like Sanju and Padmaavat in Gulf.
The overseas numbers are $9.5 million till date but it could fall short of the top overseas grosser of the year Gully Boy which did a little over $10 million.
United Kingdom - £850,000
USA / Canada - $2,750,000
Gulf - $3,950,000
Australia - A$825,000
The top four overseas markets have contributed $8.25 million so far. The worldwide figures till date are around 290 crore with India giving 224 crore and Overseas adding 66 crore.
