Akshay Kumar's "Rustom" witnessed a drop in its collection in the second week, but managed to rake in an impressive figure in the worldwide box office by the end of its 13th day. It is now set to cross Rs.200 crore mark at the worldwide box office.
"Rustom" collected Rs. 150 crore gross at the domestic box office and a total of Rs. 182 crore gross in worldwide box office by the end of its 10th day. On its 11th day, the Tinu Suresh Desai's film raked in Rs. 2.21 crore and Rs.1.97 crore and Rs. 2.34 crore at domestic market on 12th day and 13th day, respectively, thereby taking its worldwide gross collection to Rs.188.5 crore.
With this, it appears like the Akshay and Ileana D'cruz starrer will take another couple of days to cross the Rs.200 crore mark in worldwide box office collection. Also, since Thursday is a holiday (Krishna Janmashtami), the film is expected to see a good run at the theatres. Movie-goers, who have not watched "Rustom" as of now, may also choose the film over the recent releases like "Happy Bhag Jayegi."
While "Rustom" was expected to be overshadowed by new release "A Flying Jatt" starring Tiger Shroff, as per the early estimates, the superhero film has opened to poor response. The negative reviews may force the movie-goers to give "Rustom" a try instead of "A Flying Jatt."
On the other hand, the Tinu Suresh Desai-directed movie has already broken several box office records, including the lifetime box office collection of Akshay's "Housefull 2" and "Housefull 3," which made Rs.106 crore and Rs.109.14 crore, respectively, at the Indian box office.
Not just that, going by the second week worldwide box office collection of "Rustom," the film has shattered the lifetime collection of Akshay's "Holiday," which minted Rs.129.06 crore at the worldwide box office.
