Here's how much Samantha's Yashoda collected at box office on day one
The film is directed by Hari and Harish
The Samantha Ruth Prabhu-starrer Yashoda, which released in theatres on Friday, has collected Rs 6.32 crore (gross) on day one, worldwide, the makers revealed on Saturday.
The film opened to mixed reviews with a few critics praising Samantha’s performance. “Samantha is at the centre of Yashoda and plays a character straight out of the hero playbook. There are fight sequences, there’s a rousing reveal, there’s sister sentiment, there’s a leader angle… And yet, it’s not a protagonist a man could have played,” notes Cinema Express in its review of the film.
