Rustom had a strong holiday on Tuesday with collections down around 45% from Friday. This was a Tuesday rather than a Monday which means the fair value Monday fall is around 40%. The daily business for the first five days is as follows.
Friday – 14,00,00,000
Saturday – 16,25,00,000
Sunday – 19,50,00,000
Monday – 17,75,00,000
Tuesday – 7,75,00,000 apprx
Total – 75,25,00,000
The first week of the film is going to close at near 90 crore nett which is comfortably the highest first week for an Akshay Kumar starrer. There is a holiday today in Mumbai and the film is faring very well in Mumbai so it should had to collections and then there is Raksha Bandhan tomorrow which should also help. It is possible the next two days could stay above the 7 crore nett mark.
The film is holding very strongly at multiplexes and now Mohenjo Daro is basically out of the way and with not much coming on Friday it should really have a big second week though how big will be determined by where the collections land on Friday. Rustom has the opportunity to become the highest Akshay Kumar grosser ever and the target is 131 crore nett of Rowdy Rathore.
