Akshay Kumar’s movie strikes Gold with Rs 25.25 crores on Day 1


On its first day, it started with large collections of 20.52 crores whereas the 2nd day saw a huge drop as it raked in 7.92 crores.

Akshay Kumar's Gold and John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate have proved that a same day release may after all not be a bad a thing. But the Milap Zaveri-directed film has registered a "decent" total on Day 4 - Rs 7.25 crore - and the film's total collection now stands at Rs 40.75 crore, the report added.

Gold, also starring Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sunny Kaushal and Mouni Roy, has emerged to be Akshay Kumar's biggest opening till date. Check out the latest box office update right here...

Gold earned good moolah on its opening day.

Just like Gold, John's Satyameva Jayate too managed to gain a litle momentum post the dip on Thursday.

To be sure, the Independence Day festive weekend has been Kumar's mainstay so far. The film is a patriotic sports drama and it has got a great start at the box office with the collection of 25.25 crores. However, the multi-starrer was able to redeem itself on the next three days.

Box office collections might actually not be as catastrophic as they are made out be. The Akshay Kumar starrer is expected to cross the Rs 100-crore mark this week.

Satyameva Jayate box office collection is estimated to be around Rs 50 crore.

Trade analysts say prospects for both films are positive given the long extended weekend ahead, with Independence Day to be followed by the Parsi New Year on Friday.
