Akshay Kumar star Sooryavanshi released a few weeks ago, and since then it’s unstoppable at the box office. Directed by Rohit Shetty, the film which also features Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn has raked the moolah with each passing day, bringing the film’s total collections closer to Rs. 200 cr. Mark.
Now on his fifth Saturday in a row, Sooryavanshi managed to attract additional Rs. 66 lakhs. Interestingly, the film managed to hold its own at the box office despite new releases in the form of Bunty Aur Babli 2, Antim – The Final Truth and more recently Tadap hitting screens. In reality, Sooryavanshi was also released on the OTT streaming platform Netflix, but continues to draw audiences to theaters.
Currently, the Akshay Kumar star’s total collections are set at Rs. 192.38 cr. In reality, Sooryavanshi can now claim to enjoy super hit status as dating continues to be generated even on its fifth Saturday. Of course, from a numbers perspective, the film would have been labeled as a super hit with an absolute number of Rs. 200 crore being breached. Yet considering the fact that Rs. 192.38 crore has already entered (after reporting Rs. 66 lakhs on Saturday) and the shortfall over the double century would only be Rs. 2-3 crore, that is nevertheless a great success since from its basic point of view, it did what no other film could even remotely come close to doing until 2021.
