Rustom’s race to the 100 crore club!

Rustom’s race to the 100 crore club!

 

 

Akshay Kumar’s ‘Rustom’ clashed with Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’ on 12th August 2016. It was the biggest showdown in Bollywood this year. The whole industry seemed to have come together to support ‘Rustom’. From Arjun Kapoor to Ranveer Singh to Karan Johar, every star, big or small, showed support to ‘Rustom’ in his/her own way – videos, pictures, tweets etc. Whenever two big films have clashed in the past, we have seen the industry divided in its opinions and support, but never have we seen Bollywood totally supporting one and ignoring the other. While stars came out and talked about ‘Rustom’, nobody really cared about ‘Mohenjo Daro’. That’s what happened at the box office as well. People came out in hoards to watch Akshay Kumar and ignored Hrithik Roshan.

The first week for ‘Rustom’ was fabulous in terms of BO collection. This makes ‘Rustom’ biggest first week earner of Akshay Kumar.

Friday (12th August) – Rs 14.11 cr

Saturday – Rs 16.43 cr

Sunday – Rs 19.88 cr

Monday – Rs 17.81 cr

Tuesday – Rs 7.67 cr

Wednesday – Rs 6.38 cr

Thursday – Rs 8.62 cr

Total: Rs 90.00 cr

‘Rustom’ was made on a budget of 40 crore and is already the fourth highest grosser of the year beating Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Fan’ for the rank. It is soon going to enter the 100 crore club. This will be the third entrant in the 100 crore club for Akshay this year after ‘Airlift’ and ‘Houseful 3’.

Top 5 grossers of the year

Sultan – Rs 300.35 cr

Airlift – Rs 127.80 cr

Housefull 3 – Rs 107.70 cr

Rustom – Rs 90.90 cr

Fan – Rs 85.00 cr

‘Rustom’ is directed by Tinu Suresh Desai and also features Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Arjun Bajwa. It is a biopic based on the famous Nanavati murder case of 1959.

  • Whenever a celebrity does something whether good or bad, extraordinary or mundane, the news always manages to make its way to the headlines. The frenzy around Indian celebrities who became politicians is therefore justified. And when the theme is women-centric, it’s even better.
  • We all know actors who are also singers seem to be the latest trend in B-town. And you must be aware there are quite a few of them, but we have news for you! First, this trend is not new-found and secondly there are many celebrities who possess this talent. Shocked aren’t you?
