Rustom has come out on top initially between the clash of Mohenjo Daro and Rustom basically meaning Akshay Kumar comes out ahead of Hrithik Roshan. The opening of Rustom is around 35-40% while Mohenjo Daro is around 25%. The opening of Rustom is good while Mohenjo Daro is below the mark. Rustom has opened on 1900 theatres which will be around 2300 screens while Mohenjo Daro has opened on 2100 theatres which will be 2500 screens. Rustom has probably taken an opening which is among the top three of the year and this is a good result considering it was a clash. The films are close in single screens with Mohenja Daro even being ahead at many but in the multiplexes more or less across the country it is Rustom with a comfortable lead.
The key is Mumbai, Delhi / UP and East Punjab which are the bigger markets forming over 60% for films like Rustom and Mohejo Daro and all these markets has Rustom ahead. Mumbai was always going to come on Rustom side but with a Mumbai based subject, North could have been harder to pull through but the strong pull of Akshay Kumar has probably helped there. Mohenjo Daro is leading in South where Hrithik Roshan has a bigger draw, Mysore will be close though Mohenjaro Daro will come out on top in Nizam / Andhra and Tamil Nadu / Kerala. Mohenjo Daro also holds chances in East India but that just wont be enough as the main markets of North and Mumbai are with Rustom.
