The Akshay Kumar – Mouni Roy starrer Gold released last week alongside Satyameva Jayate on August 15. Directed by Reema Kagti, the film opened across 3000 screens in India to positive response from both the audiences and critics alike. Not surprisingly, despite the competition from the other release, Gold that tells the story of India’s first Olympic gold medal took the lead at the box office.
Now after a week long run, we take a look at the box office collections of Gold while comparing the same to previous releases. Claiming the fifth spot on the highest opening week grossers list, Gold has managed to rake in Rs. 88.9 cr. Affected by the other release, the business of Gold does not manage to surpass the collections of previous releases like Sanju that collected Rs. 202.51 cr, Padmaavat that collected Rs. 166.50 cr, Race 3 that collected Rs. 140.74 cr, and Baaghi 2 that collected Rs 112.85 cr. On the other hand, the business of Gold that still manages to find takers in multiplex dominated circuits has managed to surpass the business of other releases like Satyameva Jayate that collected Rs. 75.09 cr, Raid that collected Rs. 63.05 cr, Pad Man that collected Rs. 62.87 cr, Veere Di Wedding that collected Rs. 56.96 cr, and Raazi that collected Rs. 56.59 cr.
As of now, with two new releases hitting screens and its competitor Satyameva Jayate still running strong, all that remains to be seen is whether Gold manages to retain its hold over the audience and the box office. However, expectations are that the business of Gold is more than likely to reach Rs. 95 cr by the end of its second weekend.
