Satyagraha rakes in Rs 39 crores in first weekend

Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha has collected Rs 39.12 crore within three days of its release on 30 August. The socio-political thriller is likely to retain its presence on the screens despite two biggies- Zanjeer and Shuddh Desi Romance, releasing Friday.

Made at a reported budget of Rs 50 crore, the film features an ensemble cast of megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpayee, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Rao.
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, the movie collected Rs 11.21 crore on the opening day which is perhaps the biggest opening collection for Jha. It made Rs 13.08 crore and Rs 14.83 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

A Delhi cinema official said the movie ‘performed well over the weekend’. ‘On Friday, the occupancy was 70 percent, Saturday 88 percent and Sunday 84 percent. The film is not just about politics, it has emotions too which people are liking,’ Puneet Sahay of Spice Cinemas said.
