Akshay Kumar movie Rustom box office collection day 1 Film soars in Middle East to earn about Rs 15 crore.
Akshay Kumar’s Rustom opened on Friday amid mixed reviews but a strong hold at the box office. Considered one of the big releases of the year, Rustom stars Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Arjan Bajwa in important roles.
Rustom opened at 50 percent occupancy, which is a good number for a Friday. This is Akshay’s third big release of the year. The actor’s Airlift and Housefull 3 have already earned over Rs 100 crore at the box office.
In certain centres, Rustom ran to packed houses. It received a wonderful response in Mumbai, Delhi and other northern circuits. The film didn’t get a lot of traction in south India. Given the occupancy, Rustom is likely to earn around Rs 15 crore in box office collection. The film opened on 2300 screens.
The Tinu Suresh Desai-directed crime-mystery film has garnered a positive response from the audience in the first show and the word of mouth is expected to take its business upwards in the afternoon and evening shows.
