Mission Mangal starring Akshay Kumar & Vidya Balan in lead released yesterday and has been receiving an earth-shattering response already! The opening day collections at the box office are out, and the movie has already turned out to be Khiladi Kumar’s highest ever opener. Now, let’s see what the morning occupancy for the day has to suggest about the movie.
After witnessing an overall occupancy of 60-65% throughout the day, Mission Mangal made collections of 29.16 crores. Although Independence Day did give a huge benefit to this Jagan Shakti directorial, the response has been beyond expectations. Talking about today, the morning occupancy is in the range of 20-25%, which was expected considering it’s a working day.
The shows are expected to pick up in the evening, and the positive word of mouth will only help the numbers to increase further during the weekend. All in all, the coming days are something to look forward to for Akshay Kumar & team.
Directed by Jagan Shakti, Mission Mangal also stars Nithya Menen, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu and Kirti Kulhari.
Nithya Menen is a major star in southern films, but she says she is happy to make her Bollywood debut in the multistarrer Mission Mangal that features four other actresses along with Akshay Kumar. Nithya added that she never wanted to debut in a conventional rom-com, unlike the norm.
“My choice of films from the beginning was unconventional, maybe because I never wanted to become an actor. It was not my biggest dream. I did a film because I loved the story. So when I decided to debut in Bollywood, I was not really looking for a conventional rom-com,” Nithya said, during a media interaction.
