The much talked about and keenly anticipated film Pad Man starring Akshay Kumar released on Friday. Directed by R. Balki and also featuring Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte which released across 3350 screens (2750 domestic + 600 overseas) has opened well.
In this analysis, we take a look at the opening day collections of Pad Man while comparing the same to previous Akshay Kumar releases. Collecting Rs. 10.26 cr, Pad Man has managed to become Akshay Kumar’s tenth highest opening day grosser. However, the business of Pad Man does not manage to surpass the opening day collections of Akshay Kumar’s other films like Singh Is Bliing that collected Rs. 20.67 cr, Housefull 3 that collected Rs. 15.21 cr, Brothers that collected Rs. 15.2 cr, Rowdy Rathore that collected Rs. 15.10 cr, Boss that collected Rs. 14.5 cr, Rustom that collected Rs. 14.11 cr, Housefull 2 that collected Rs. 14 cr, Jolly LLB 2 that collected Rs. 13.2 cr, and Toilet – Ek Prem Katha that collected Rs. 13.1 cr.
But, given the audience’s appreciation, the positive reviews for the film and the strong word of mouth for it, Pad Man is expected to see good growth in business over the coming days.
