Box Office Report: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gold’ slows down on the second day

Akshay Kumar and Mouni Roy‘s sports drama ‘Gold‘ has finally hit the screens on Independence Day. The Reema Kagti directorial that is based on India’s first Olympic victory in 1948 and the 12 years of hard work and dedication that led up to the victory did quite well at the box office on its first day.

As per trade pundits, the film that is being bankrolled by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under Excel Entertainment went on to mint Rs 25.25 crore on Day 1 at the box office. This left many stunned as the expected collection for the movie on Day 1 was apparently Rs. 20 crores. But looks like Akshay Kumar’s presence, the national Holiday effect, and the patriotic theme associated with the movie were helped it to make more than expected.

Though ‘Gold’ clashed with John Abraham,s ‘Satyameva Jayate’, it has managed to be ahead of the action dhamaka. The magic of positive word of mouth has helped ‘Gold’ to become the third highest opener of 2018 and also the highest opener for Akshay Kumar.

Now all eyes are on the second day business of the content driven film. On day 2, ‘Gold’ has done a business of Rs 8 crore taking his two day total to Rs 33.25 crore. The sports drama is still leading ‘Satyamev Jayate‘ in the all the major cities.

The first two day business of ‘Gold’ is as follows.

Friday – 25.25 crores

Saturday – 8 crores

TOTAL – 33.25 crores

Thursday was a working day therefore, the movie has witnessed a drop but let us wait and watch how the sports drama fares in the next few days.
