Box Office Prediction
Saaho is one of the most awaited movies of all time. The pre-release buzz surrounding it incredible, to say the least. The trailer of the movie has received an incredible response and it is definite that the movie will get a thunderous opening at the box office.
Talking about the Hindi version, the movie is expected to release on around 3500 screens. Considering the craze of the movie, I am expecting it to earn at least 30 crores on its opening day. If the movie lives up to expectations then it will be one of the biggest blockbusters of the Indian cinema with the collection of more than 700+ crores (in India) across all languages.
