Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh on Monday was a hit, as the film garnered in the range of Rs. 12.75 to 13 cr. on the fourth day, bringing the total of four days to Rs. 90 crore. The decline in business was expected as it came from a big holiday weekend in the country; however, he continued to receive support from the Diwali factor even on Monday in Gujarat.
Gujarat is going to another level as the film has recorded 30% of its business from this state alone, and the numbers here are benefiting from the holiday week due to Diwali. Of the total business, over 50% of the business came from Gujarat and Maharashtra, which have conventionally been the main markets for Rohit Shetty’s films. Delhi / NCR was surprisingly below the mark. The film is sure to cross the Rs. 100 cr. score in 5 days as Tuesday business is also expected to be in the double-digit space. The first week of Sooryavanshi it will be around Rs. 117 cr., Which is once again an excellent result given the uncertain times in which we find ourselves.
Public reports are positive and this is poised to be the industry’s first net hit since the release of Tanhaji – the unsung warrior. The film must exceed the 170 crore cap to hit the clean hit tag, and the four-day tag suggests it will surpass the aforementioned number, although a lot also depends on the second Friday.
Sooryavanshi played an important role in revitalizing the exhibition industry and kudos to Reliance, Rohit Shetty and the entire team for holding onto the release for such a long time and believing in the middle of big screen entertainment.
