All these questions related to the movie Gold are answered below in detail.
Akshay Kumar and Independence Day Connection
Akshay Kumar’s image is associated with patriotism as he acts in many related movies. In 2015, he came with the patriotic movie, Baby on Republic day and surprised everyone with his work. After that, he didn’t stop and enrolled himself in the movies namely Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Rustom which released around Independence Day. This time, Gold is the new movie of Akshay which is in the news since the release of its trailer. Here are the last three openings of Akshay Kumar at the box office:
- Rustom – Rs. 14.11 crores
- Toilet: Ek Prem Katha – Rs. 13.10 crores
- Padman – Rs. 10.26 crores
First Day Collection Early Estimates
Gold first day collection is most likely to cross the mark of Rs. 20 crores. The sports drama movie has registered excellent advance bookings at the box office and it has collected over Rs. 10 crores before its releases. Gold has taken the highest advance earning for any film of Akshay Kumar. The only thing which is against Gold at this point is its competition with the movie Satyameva Jayate. How more Gold will earn above Rs. 20 crores depends on the performance of its counterpart.
But the two films are not going to get affected due to each other. It is because both the films are based on a different genre. Since Gold is not a solo release so it is not expected to cross the mark of Rs. 25 crores. Gold movie is likely to become the highest opening film for Akshay Kumar as it could surpass the first day earning of his highest grosser film, Singh Is Bling. More updates about the film Gold will be made available soon.
Update: Gold did an impressive business on its first day and managed to cross the mark of Rs. 25 crores. Earlier, it was not expected to do so but the final opening day earning comes out to be Rs. 25.25 crores. Despite being a content film, Gold attracted a huge number of footfalls in the multiplexes and it has become the highest opening for Akshay Kumar.
