Sooryavanshi Box Office: Akshay Kumar starrer all set to be his biggest opener, will clock in around Rs 30 crore on Day 1
After the COVID-19 pandemic shut the theatres for more than a year, the Maharashtra government has now given permission to run the multiplexes in full occupancy (in some cities). Having said that, Sooryavanshi is the first big-budget film that has released in the theatres today, November 4 along with Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Eternals. As fans are going gaga over Sooryavanshi, it looks like Akshay Kumar starrer is gearing up to crush his biggest opener ox office record.
Reportedly, it will be a close fight with his current highest opener Mission Mangal that collected Rs 29.16 crore at the box office. Going by the occupancy for Sooryavanshi, the film starring Akshay and Katrina Kaif is set to cross approximately the Rs 30 mark but the night shows will be a deciding factor now. Moreover, the numbers could have gone above Rs 35+ crore had the problem with multiplexes been sorted earlier. As the differences with the multiplex chains got sorted last night itself, it has affected the advance booking in most key centres.
For the unversed, according to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the director of the film, Rohit Shetty had demanded a 60% revenue share in the first week while asking the theatre owners to provide maximum screens to their film. Furthermore, theatres with fewer screens were asked not to play the major Hollywood film Eternals since it was released on the same day as Sooryavanshi.
