Bollywood star Salman Khan’s latest release Bajrangi Bhaijaan had a strong opening weekend over India’s Eid holiday weekend, proving that he has box-office drawing power despite a recent conviction in a hit-and-run accident case.
The film, co-produced by the actor’s banner Salman Khan Films and distributed by Eros International worldwide, crossed the 1 billion rupee (about $16 million) mark in its first three days of release after opening on Friday, the companies said Monday. Movies that reach this mark are seen as bona fide hits.
