Despite the newly released film Akira featuring Sonakshi Sinha, Neeraj Pandey’s crime-thriller Rustom has managed to collect around Rs 40 lakhs on its 22nd day (4th Friday) at the domestic box office. Its total overall box office collections in India has now reached to Rs 125.12* crores.
Akshay Kumar and Ileana D’Cruz starrer Rustom has still shown some perseverance and hold on strongly even in its 4th week. This clearly shows that the film has been successfully made its place into people’s heart and comes out as a big commercial and critical winner.
It has currently stood on the third spot in the list of Top 10 highest grossing Bollywood grossers of 2016 behind Sultan (Rs 300.65 crores) and Airlift (Rs 127.84 crores).
With 4th weekend has arrived the corner, it is a strong possibility that the numbers of Rustom would surely go above this mark due to a cold response from Akira, and it will become 2nd highest grosser of the year to beat Airlift.
For Akshay, this year has certainly come out as the biggest surprise of his career. His all three releases of the year Airlift, Housefull 3 and Rustom has crossed the 100 crore mark at the Indian box office plus all three films are in the top 5 of highest grossers of the year.
At the worldwide markets, Rustom has so far collected more than Rs 210 crores which include around Rs 175 crores grossed from India and Rs 36 crores from overseas.
