Box Office: Sooryavanshi Day 2 Collection, collects ₹24 crore
Sooryavanshi box office day 2 estimates: The Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif film has collected another ₹24 crores. The film is directed by Rohit Shetty.
Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, registered a good performance on the second day with a total of almost R24.50 crore. However, the film failed to gain momentum due to the Bhai Dooj festival and made the bank smaller than it did on Friday. Rohit Shetty's film was unveiled in theatres at a cost of R26.29 million. It was in conflict with the Hollywood film, Eternals at the box office.
A report by Boxofficeindia.com said: "Sooryavanshi is doing very well on the second day as it looks to record collections at 24.50 crore net collection. This collection is out of the big holiday and the decline will be only 5-10%." The film, which opened in theatres on Friday after several delays due to the coronavirus epidemic, echoed the outcry of crowds lined up outside theatres in various parts of the country. Reliance Entertainment, which sponsors the film, said the film made a strong business in boxing although the numbers were declining in various parts of the country.
"The response has been positive but due to state restrictions the business has been affected (slightly) in the areas of Maharashtra, MP, Bihar and Haryana due to a 50 per cent occupation otherwise the price would have been R34 crore in the domestic market," Reliance Entertainment Group said. Chief executive Shibasish Sarkar told PTI about the opening of the film.
The response of the film box shows that the audience is back at the cinema and it is time to celebrate, Sarkar said. "We hope the film will gain more than R75-85 crore in the domestic market in three days' time," he added.
