Gold box office collection Day 2: Akshay Kumar's film is on fire

Gold box office collection Day 2: Akshay Kumar's film is on fire

The first day box office earnings of T-Series and Emmay Entertainment produced Satyameva Jayate, Rs 20.52 Cr has proved tradesmiths wrong. Now the actor's Gold, which took a roaring start of Rs. 25.25 crore on its opening day did see an expected dip on Thursday and Friday (due to these being working days).

After witnessing a dip on Thursday, John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Satyameva Jayate witnessed a good jump yesterday at the box office.

The film-makers are proud that Satyameva Jayate became the first A certified film to earn Rs 20.52 Crore at the box office on its first day, and meanwhile we'll have to wait and watch if the John Abraham starrer will further break records in the coming days.

"#SatyamevaJayate saw a big dip on Day 2". Both films collected Rs 45 crore on day one of release on August 15. His satirical comedy Toilet: Ek Prem Katha released this time a year ago had made Rs 11.34 crore on its opening day and Rs. 132.07 crore in lifetime box office collections. Total: "Rs 28.44 crore", Taran Adarsh tweeted. After a sharp fall in business on the second day, both the movies failed to show much growth on Friday, Aug 17. "As was expected, Gold got the gentry (or the multiplex audience in big metros) while John's film got a mix of some multiplexes and many single screens across India".

The reason behind the films failing to sustain their momentum after the first day could be attributed to their word-of-mouth publicity, with both Gold and Satyameva Jayate receiving mixed critics responses.

Akshay Kumar's Independence Day release this year, Gold, is setting the box office on fire. The film is also the highest opener for a "A" rated action film.
