Akshay Kumar’s Rustom has touched the 127 crore* mark. Though the film would just fall a few lakhs short of Airlift [129 crore], it still is from an academic perspective since both Akshay Kumar starrers are big superhits. As a matter of fact, Akshay Kumar’s three films [Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom] have now generated over 363 crore at the Box Office in 2016, which is a huge feat indeed.
Unless Aamir Khan throws a huge All Time Blockbuster in Dangal, the record for generating the maximum moolah in a calendar year would stay on with Akshay Kumar for 2016.
Rustom has also managed to gross over 218 crores worldwide. With 127 crores nett. collections in the domestic market the film has already made a profit of 87 crores (217.5%) at the box office.
This crime thriller also features Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Arjan Bajwa in pivotal roles.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
