Saaho might have performed excellently well in the first weekend but the film needs to hold strongly at the box office. Again today is a holiday due to Ganesh Chaturthi in Entire Maharashtra including Mumbai and some other centers so a push will come from this and actual levels will be known tomorrow.
Still, if it was a working day then The Below Scenario was the benchmark for the film.

Incidentally, Baahubali 2 which is the highest grosser in India and Saaho is following it in the first weekend had similar trends in the Initial weekend.
After opening at 121 crores the film dropped to 90 crores on its second day due to Telegu version falling by 40% and the film again picked up on Sunday due to similar growth in Hindi collections.
On it’s 4th day which was a Monday Baahubali 2 had raked in 80 crores with 40.25 crores coming from Hindi, 8 crores coming from Tamil, 27.75 crores coming from Telegu and Malayalam contributed another 4 crores. However, that was Labour Day in India and hence collections did not drop much.
