The Rohit Shetty directed film Sooryavanshi has been unstoppable at the box office since its release over two weeks ago. After opening with a bang the business of the Akshay Kumar starrer witnessed immense growth over its opening weekend and first week. Subsequently in its second weekend and second week the collections of the film remained more of less stable with a steady flow. Now after its third weekend running Sooryavanshi has become one of Akshay Kumar’s highest grossing films.
In this box office report we take a look at the collections of Sooryavanshi within the Mumbai circuit while comparing the same to Akshay Kumar’s previous releases. Collecting Rs. 68.28 cr. Sooryavanshi has become Akshay Kumar’s all-time highest grosser within the Mumbai circuit. Not surprisingly, the business of the film has surpassed the collections of his previous releases like Housefull 4 that collected Rs. 62.62 cr., Mission Mangal that collected Rs. 62.45 cr., Good Newwz that collected Rs. 60.07 cr., 2.0 that collected Rs. 52.99 cr., Rowdy Rathore that collected Rs. 50.5 cr., Rustom that collected Rs. 47.18 cr., Housefull 2 that collected Rs. 43.53 cr., Airlift that collected Rs. 42.14 cr., and Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty that had collected Rs. 40.56 cr.
Interestingly, the business of Sooryavanshi managed this feat despite the 50% occupancy restriction imposed due to the pandemic. In fact, trade opines that had the occupancy restrictions been lifted, the collections of Sooryavanshi could easily have been higher.
As of now, Sooryavanshi that has entered its third week in theatres continues to remain as the audience’s first choice. Despite the release of the Saif Ali Khan – Rani Mukerji starrer Bunty Aur Babli 2, the Akshay Kumar film enjoys the audience’s favour.
