The film saw a growth of around Rs 3 crore and Day 2 business of ‘Sam Bahadur’ is Rs 9.25 Cr India nett according to Sacnilk. With that, the film’s total collection stands at Rs 15.50 crore in two days. This means ‘Sam Bahadur’ almost saw a growth of 50 percent on Day 2.
Sam Bahadur Movie Review
If this trend continues even on Sunday, ‘Sam Bahadur’ will be in for a very decent weekend. The film released in only 1500-2000 screens as compared to ‘Animal’ which released in 4500-5000. As ETimes had reported, there’s also a difference in the ticket prices of both these movies. The ticket price of ‘Animal’ is higher than that of ‘Sam Bahadur’ due to the high demand of the film.

With positive word of mouth, the film must continue to hold well on Sunday and the coming days ahead.
