Akshay Kumar's "Entertainment" maintained its hold at the box office on first Monday. The domestic box office collection of the movie now stands at ₹43.69 crore and will soon touch the ₹50 crore mark in India.
Due to its hold at the box office, "Entertainment" minted ₹7 crore on its fourth day. The film had a decent opening weekend and was expected to fetch well during weekdays. And as expected the film started the weekdays on a very strong note.
"#Entertainment has a SUPER-STRONG Monday. Fri 11.16 cr, Sat 11.53 cr, Sun 14 cr, Mon 7 cr. Total: ₹ 43.69 cr nett. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
But the film has to continue at the same pace at the box office as the other weekdays' figures will decide its fate.
"It had a slow start, but the film saw a big jump on Sunday. One will have to wait and see how it will perform before Ajay Devgn's Singham Returns releases on Friday," exhibitor Rajesh Thadani told Mid-Day.
Meanwhile, in overseas markets, the film has opened to mixed response from audience. The film embarked on an ordinary note in the international arena.
Though it was released in around 400 screens overseas, the film minted ₹8.51 crore on its opening weekend. The film fared well in UAE-GCC and Pakistan market, where Bollywood films hold a strong position.
"OVERSEAS: #Entertainment opening weekend total: $ 1,392,054 [Rs 8.51 cr]. Best in UAE-GCC and Pakistan," Adarsh tweeted.
