When the going was getting tough for Bollywood at box office. it’s Akshay Kumar who showed up to the occasion and is flying it out of that tough period. His movie Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is shaking the box office with its amazing run and audience has accepted the film. Remember, this is the same audience which rejected Tubelight and Jab Harry Met Sejal and has now shown a massive love for TEPK, thanks to Akshay Kumar and his content driven film.
The crowd has sent a message, only sensible stories will work, no star driven approach. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has collected 51 crore in its opening weekend. After a good 1st day, its Saturday and Sunday collections witnessed a huge growth, proving that the interest level to watch the movie is enormous in the country.
Here are Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s Opening Weekend Collections:
Friday – 13.10 crore
Saturday – 17.10 crore
Sunday – 21.25 crore
Total Collections – 51.45 crore
The first major test for TEPK is done and it has passed with flying colors. Now, it needs to sustain well in next couple of weeks so that it can mint a handsome lifetime total. Today is a partial holiday of Janmashtami and tomorrow, i.e. Tuesday is Independence Day of India, which will once again ensure brilliant earning for the film.
The first week itself will take Toilet: Ek Prem Katha close to 100 crore milestone. With 3000 screens in India, it is getting a wonderful response from multiplexes as well as single screens. TEPK and Akshay Kumar have changed the scenario for Bollywood which was struggling for the last couple of months.
Akshay Kumar has been very consistent from 2016. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will be his 5th consecutive 100 crore film if it achieves that mark. All it needs to do is keep holding well in weekdays. It also has a very good chance to keep minting in 2nd week too.
