Akshay Kumar’s Gold enters Rs 100-crore club: Akshay Kumar latest film Gold has made it into the Rs 100-crore club on Tuesday. According to film analyst Taran Adarsh, the film crossed Rs 100 crore mark 13 days after its release. Over the past weekend, on Friday, Akshay Kumar’s Gold earned a total of Rs 1.85 crore, Rs 3.10 crore on Saturday, Rs 4.75 crore on Sunday and Rs 1.45 crore on Monday. Gold’s current earnings stand at a total of Rs 100.45 crore.
Akshay Kumar’s Gold which has become his 9th film to enter Rs 100 crore club, received positive reviews from critics, audience and fans. In Gold, Akshay Kumar portrayed the character of Tapan Das, who led the Indian Hockey team to clinch the first gold medal at the Olympics.
Apart from Gold, Bollywood films including Padmaavat, Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety, Raid, Baaghi 2, Raazi, Race 3, Sanju have already become part of 100 crore club. According to Taran Adarsh, entering Rs 100 crore is no more a yardstick to access a film’s success.
Apart from Akshay Kumar, it was a Bollywood debut for TV actress Mouni Roy on the silver screen. Both Gold and John Abraham’s Satyamev Jayte performed well on Box-office. Meanwhile, B-town analysts also believe that Satyameva Jayate gave a tough competition to Akshay Kumar’s Gold and if the film’s date wouldn’t have clashed with Satyameva Jayate, Gold’s total business so far would have been more.
Gold on its opening day collected a whopping Rs 25.25 crore, but the frequency of earnings dropped in the coming days. While Akshay’s latest movie has been able to cross Rs 100 crore marks, his previous film Padman could not achieve this figure and close to Rs 90 crore.
