Box Office Collections: Akshay Kumar is continuing his fantastic run of scoring back to back centuries. With an exception of PadMan which couldn’t cover the distance, Akshay Kumar has seen a flurry of 100 Crore Club films, especially during last couple of years. While Gold was his last century a few months back, 2.0 [Hindi] has done the trick as well, hence turning out to be 10th century for the superstar.
This is how the lifetime numbers of each of his centuries looks like:
2.0 [Hindi] – 111 crore (5 days)
Toilet – Ek Prem Katha – 134.25 crore
Rowdy Rathore – 133 crore
Airlift – 129 crore
Rustom – 128 crore
ZeroJolly LLB 2 – 117 crore
Housefull 2 – 116 crore
Holiday – 113 crore
Housefull 3 – 109 crore
Gold – 105 crore
As can be seen, the record of Toilet – Ek Prem Katha would be broken in a matter of just a couple of days and that would make 2.0 as Akshay Kumar’s highest grosser till date. From there, the journey towards the 200 Crore Club will begin.
Moreover, he is also next only to Salman Khan when it comes to being a prolific century accumulator. Salman Khan leads with 13 centuries, Akshay Kumar has 10 to his name, Ajay Devgn has 8 while Shah Rukh Khan has 7 centuries. In the coming weeks, Ajay Devgn is set to extend his century run to 9 with Total Dhamaal while Shah Rukh Khan too would make it one up with Zero. However, Akshay Kumar would be back soon enough with Kesari and that would make his come further close to Salman Khan with 11 centuries expected to be on his name.
