Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which received decent reviews , earned Rs 40.35 crore on day one at the domestic box office. The Rs 40 crore box office collection is only for the Hindi version of the film. The first day business will increase after adding the Telugu and Tamil version income.

Let;s take a look at the box office records set by Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

The film released a day after Diwali keeping the first day collections in mind. Sources say that the makers were looking at a big start at the box office and decided a Diwali day release wouldn’t do justice to the film’s budget considering that evening shows on Diwali don’t do very well.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which stars Salman in a double role and reunites him with Mr Barjatya 16 years after Hum Saath Saath Hain, is Salman’s second film this year after Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
