Sooryavanshi Box Office Opening Weekend: Actor Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi has registered a solid opening weekend in India by collecting a net collection of Rs 77 crore. This is also a special feat considering no other Akshay starrer has done the same for the actor in his entire career. By minting Rs 77 crore, the Rohit Shetty-directorial has surged past the opening weekend collection of Mission Mangal, which collected Rs 67.13 crore in its first weekend at the Box Office and held the record for being the top opening weekend grosser for Akshay.
As reported by Box Office India, Sooryavanshi collected around Rs 27.50 crore (nett) on Sunday, which took its opening weekend total to Rs 77.50 crore (nett). According to various trade pundits, had the film been released before the pandemic, its opening weekend collection would have easily surpassed the mark of Rs 100 crore (net). However, with the film releasing at 50 per cent capacity in many theatres and other restrictions, the collection remained below Rs 100 crore on the first weekend.
Interestingly, Sooryavanshi is not just Akshay’s highest opening weekend grosser but also his first film that has collected more than Rs 30 crore (nett) in the Mumbai circuit alone. Check out the list of top opening weekend grosser of Akshay Kumar here:
