With Khiladi 786 staying stable in the second weekend as well, the box office prospects of the film have soared further. While it had earlier seemed that the film would go just a little over the 70 crore mark, early indications are that 75 crores coming in is a possibility. No wonder, composer/singer/producer/actor Himesh Reshammiya was seen in a joyous mood as he celebrated the film’s success with the Comedy Circus gang.

Informs a source, “The party saw Sohail Khan, Archana Puran Singh and the entire Comedy Circus participants like Krishna Abhishek, Sudesh Kapil, Purbi Joshi and others joining in. When they prodded him to celebrate in his characteristic manner, Himesh was quick to oblige and came up with an impromptu jig that involved a medley of his 25 straight hits from Khiladi 786, Son Of Sardaar, OMG Oh My God!, Bol Bachchan and Bodyguard.”

He was also happy to credit Akshay Kumar for the film’s success.

“Himesh went on record to state all over again that it was Akshay Kumar who was the real ‘khiladi’ in the whole scheme of affairs,” informs a close associate of Himesh.

With domestic box office expected to cross 75 crores, satellite rights bringing in another 30 crores, music rights fetching 5 crore and more expected from overseas and video rights, Himesh has all the reasons to rejoice. As for Akshay Kumar, he has moved on already and is now looking at an exciting year ahead with Special Chabbis, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2, Boss and Thuppaki remake occupying his schedule.

Kudos to Akki

  2. Akshay Kumar rocks and how, in an comedy action bonanza. Akshay has done upteen comedies but the
    audience will be in splits in this one too.What an entertainer. The action is over the tops and
    good. Himesh Reshamiya’s music is lovely.Asin looks beautiful in this one.All actors do good
    job-be it Mitunda,Himesh, Raj Babbar, Mukesh Rishi,Bharti Singh, Rahul Singh or Jonny Lever.
    So a complete entertainer.
    Blockbuster Indian Masala fare. Go give yourself a treat.

    Akshay Kumar was the only superstar to have 4 successful hits in one year in Bollywood ( 2007-Namaste london, Heyy Baby, Bhool bhoolaiya, Welcome), he has done it again in 2012. Simply outstanding. To add to the happiness he was blessed by a beautiful daughter. So I think this year is his best. Only one irreparable loss for the Akshay Kumar housefold…Rajesh Khanna.

  3. khiladi 786 is a flop overseas…in india it has not only not crossed 100cr its performance has been very disappointinh for a big masala film wid hit music…only 75cr??… akshay shud hav just done rowdy and housefull and omg…he does too many films and spoils his own strike rate… i like the guy but its true…
