Akshay Kumar has scored yet another century with Kesari which has achieved this milestone in one week flat. This marks the superstar’s 11th century now, a remarkable feat indeed.
Let’s take a look at the business of his centuries so far:
Movie Name – Box office collection
2.0 [Hindi] – Rs. 189 crore
Kesari – Rs. 100 crore (and counting)
Toilet - Ek Prem Katha – Rs.134.25 crore
Rowdy Rathore – Rs.133 crore
Airlift – Rs. 129 crore
Rustom - 128 crore
Jolly LLB 2 – Rs. 117 crore
Housefull 2 – Rs. 116 crore
Holiday – Rs. 113 crore
Housefull 3 – Rs. 109 crore
Gold – Rs. 105 crore
Akshay is now next only to Salman Khan who has 13 centuries to his name. Ajay Devgn comes next with 9 centuries and then there is Shah Rukh Khan with 7 films in the 100 Crore Club.
It has to be seen how Akshay Kumar battles it out for the maximum number of centuries as there are three more biggies lined up next in the form of Mission Mangal, Good News and Housefull 4. On the other hand, Salman Khan too would keep extending his lead with Bharat and Dabangg 3 which would arrive before the close of year.
An interesting competition indeed for the place at the top.
