Akshay Kumar and team have managed to impress the audiences with their latest outing Mission Mangal. After taking a fantastic start on an opening day, the only need of the hour for the movie was to maintain a strong grip on the following days and a show a healthy jump on Sunday, which is what exactly happened.
Enjoying an extended weekend of 4 days, Mission Mangal collected 70.02 crores in the first three days. On Sunday, the movie saw a huge rise in the collections as it earned 27-29 crores, as per the early trends. This takes the sci-fi movie’s total to 97.02-99.02 crores, thus marginally away from entering the coveted 100 crore club.
Mission Mangal is on a record run as despite a competition from John Abraham’s Batla House, it has managed to add such a huge total and is the sure-shot contender of 200 crore club.
During a promotional event of Mission Mangal, Akshay Kumar said that it is “sad” that actors these days are reluctant to sign films having two or more heroes, and instead opt only for films that offer them solo-hero subjects.
“To be honest and without taking names, actors in our industry still don’t understand the fact that they should do two-hero or three-hero subject. They are not doing it. I have tried to find out why they don’t want to do it. Everybody wants to do a solo hero subject. The earlier generation – my generation – did it. They even worked in three-hero subjects,” the actor quoted.
