Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is enjoying a dream run at the Indian box office. As per the trends of the film, it might even go ahead to become Akshay Kumar‘s all-time highest grossing film. Despite getting mixed reviews from the critics, it is working quite well and is riding high at the box office because of positive word of mouth of the audience. Reports suggest that the film is going to earn around 20 crores on its Day 5 (1st Tuesday) at the Indian box office.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Day Wise Box Office Collection
- Day 1: 13.10 crores
- Day 2: 17.10 crores
- Day 3: 21.25 crores
- Day 4: 12 crores
- Day 5: 20 crores
Total: 83.45 crores
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha had an excellent start in the morning shows with an incredible occupancy around 50%. However, the occupancy in the northern region was around 70%. This was almost equal to what it had on its first Sunday. The occupancy went on to grow and reach 70% during the evening shows ensuring that the film was heading towards a fantastic total on its first Tuesday.
The Independence Day national holiday has given a great boost to the Akshay Kumar starrer movie. Postponing the release date of the film has worked wonders for the movie. Initially, it was supposed to release during the Ramzan period. Even though Tubelight and Raabta turned out to be mediocre movies; getting such a good weekend followed by holidays like Janmashtami and Independence Day guaranteed that the film was going to do wonders at the Indian box office.
We can finally say that the rough phase of Bollywood has finally ended. Not Salman Khan, not Shah Rukh Khan, it was the underdog Akshay Kumar who helped Bollywood stay tall and get the better of its rough phase. As per the looks of the present box office collection, the movie will earn around 93-95 crores in its first week. Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bareilly Ki Barfi is going to hit the screens this Friday. However, it will not affect Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s box office collection by any means. As a matter of fact, the Akshay Kumar starrer might very well go on to beat Raees and become the highest grossing film of the year!
