Akshay Kumar starrer Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is doing exceptionally well at the box office. This movie is now officially 2nd Successful movie of Akshay Kumar after Jolly LLB 2. Now TEPK is on the path to cross 100 crores. And if everything works in the favor of the movie, it might just do it within first week itself.
If JHMS had been a good film, it might have affected TEPK a little bit, but thats not the case. And there is no major upcoming movie coming this Friday as well. So TEPK has enough time to help distributors recover all the losses they have suffered from the last few releases, especially JHMS and Tubelight.

- Friday – Rs. 13.10 crores
- Saturday – Rs. 17.10 crores
- Sunday – Rs. 21.25 crores
- Monday – Rs. 12 crores
- Tuesday – Rs 21.5 crores (approx)
Total = Rs. 84.95 crores
