Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal has had an excellent start at the Indian box office with a collection of Rs 29.16 crore on the holiday of Independence Day. It became Akshay's biggest opener of all time.
The film had faced a major decline in its earning on second day as the collection was almost half of the opening day business. Mission Mangal had collected Rs 17.28 crore on second day, but picked up strongly on Saturday. The film had earned Rs 23.58 crore on third day at the domestic market.
Nonetheless, Mission Mangal enjoyed huge occupancy in theatres across the country on its day 4, and witnessed an impressive collection. The movie collected Rs 27.54 crore at the Indian box office on Sunday, taking its total earning close to over Rs 100 crore by the end of the first weekend.
While the movie was just short of Rs 2.44 crore to reach the first milestone, Mission Mangal crossed the mark by Monday afternoon.
On the other hand, John Abraham starrer Batla House too has been doing well at the ticket counters. The film had started with a collection of Rs 15.55 crore, followed by a decline on second day as it earned Rs 8.84 crore. However, it also witnessed a jump in business on Saturday as it collected Rs 10.90 crore on day 3. Batla House witnessed further growth in collection on Sunday as the film collected Rs 12.70 crore on day 4, inching close to Rs 50 crore.
It will be interesting to see how the two films will perform over the weekdays.
