"Brothers" need approximately Rs 2.28 crore, which will be earned on its ninth day at the box office, and along with that, the film will break Rs 76 crore mark of "Dil Dhadakne Do".

The film, directed by Karan Malhotra will dominate in its second week, as the new releases have opened to a very low response.

"It's an encouraging thing that so many people were eager to see the film. I must be doing something that they (masses) are liking. It's extremely encouraging and positive," he told IANS.

The action-packed family drama, which is an official remake of Hollywood film "Warriors", was released on 14 August. The film is Akshay's biggest opener and Sidharth's second biggest opener after "Ek Villain".

Produced by Dharma Productions and Fox Star, the film also features Jacqueline Fernandez and Jackie Shroff in prominent roles.
