Both films had almost similar numbers though on the second Friday. While Gold brought in 1.80 crores*, Satyameva Jayate collected 1.82 crores.
Of course even better numbers would have been a nicer deal since there wasn’t much of a competition around them. Gold had Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi to contend with at multiplexes whereas Satyameva Jayate faced Genius at the single screens. However, looks like the Akshay Kumar and John Abraham/Manoj Bajpayee starrers have exhausted a good part of their audiences in the first nine days and hence the second Friday was just about decent.
Nonetheless, there should be added moolah coming in on Saturday and Sunday. Currently, Gold stands at 91.10 crores* and one waits to see if there would be jumps big enough to take it past the 100 crore mark before Monday itself. As for Satyameva Jayate, the film has collected 76.91 crores already and would find itself closer to the 85 crore total before the second weekend comes to a close.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
