Ajay Devgn's "Action Jackson" is off to a decent start at box office. The movie, which was released last weekend, has failed to get good reviews from critics but it has managed to pull audience to theatres in the first weekend and has made people look forward to see whether the film registers its name in the 100-crore club.
The actor has hit five centuries till date. It was Rohit Shetty's "Singham", which registered his name for the first time in the 100-crore club in 2011. It was followed by "Bol Bachchan", "Son of Sardaar", "Golmaal 3" and "Singham Returns". Now, all eyes are on his latest movie "Action Jackson", which has made ₹ 29.5 crore in the first weekend.
On the release day,"Action Jackson" made ₹ 10.25 crores and opened up to negative reviews. The trade circles were expecting a poor performance in the weekend after the film failed to garner good response from critics. Surprisingly, the Bollywood movie picked up well as it made 19 crores in the next two days.
"Action Jackson"s performance on Saturday and Sunday have raised hopes on the film reaching the 100-crore mark. Traders have curiously kept their eyes on its performance in the week days, which could be crucial for Ajay Devgn's film to score century at the box office. However, it appears to be a daunting task for the film to make 100 crores as there a few big Hollywood, Bollywood and other language films releasing in the coming weeks.
Currently, Ajay Devgn holds the record of scoring slowest century with his "Singham", which took 50 days to reach the 100-crore mark. His "Bol Bachchan" had taken 45 days, "Golmaal" took 17 days, "Son of Sardaar" reached the mark in 16 days and "Singham Returns" took just five days to earn ₹ 100 crores.
