Can ‘Bol Bachchan’ beat ‘Rowdy Rathore’ at the box office?

Still going strong in the theatres, Bol Bachchan could face stiff competition from Saif Ali Khan’s forthcoming release Cocktail and might not be able to emulate Rowdy Rathore‘s success

Bol Bachchan’s dream run at the box office continues. The Abhishek Bachchan-Ajay Devgn starrer netted a whopping Rs 50 crore in the first four days of its release in India including a weekend. Further, the film collected Rs 5.90 crore on Tuesday and another Rs 5.20 crore on Wednesday. Standing rock steady at Rs 60 crore-plus mark on Thursday, the comic caper is cruising ahead relentlessly to touch the enviable Rs 100 crore mark.

With the success of this film, Ajay Devgn continues his stint as a promising box office star. Both his 2011 films – Golmaal 2 and Singham – crossed Rs 100 crore. And if Bol Bachchan keeps the tempo going, it can turn out to be yet another box office bonanza. Though there are reports already that Rohit Shetty’s film has surpassed Rs 100 crore globally, this number is highly debatable. According to some trade websites, the film has collected Rs 88 crore in India and Rs 19 crore from the overseas market. But we are not confident about these figures.

But what we know for sure is that Bol Bachchan is enjoying great word of mouth publicity, especially amongst the family audience who are trickling in large numbers to enjoy a clean wholesome comedy with a perfect combination of action, comedy and dhamaal entertainment. However, trade pundits predict that Bol Bachchan’s race to beat Rowdy Rathore’s collection (Rs 100 crore plus) could be halted by Saif Ali Khan’s Cocktail that releases on July 13.Subscribe to me on YouTube

      but most of people in bollywood are untalented. there r very few anurag kashyap, dibakar, tigmanshu, neeraj, vikramaditya, hirani.

            hey dont, even compare akshay with ajay, ajay is a versatile actor, akshay need some teaching lessons from ajay devgan, how can u comapare akshay to ajay, ajay as already grabbed 2 national awards, akshay not even one, then how he becomes the best actor, he is a faltu,,,,

    As comparing Bol Bachan with rowdy rathore then i favour Bol Bachan the reason them is bol bachan is bollywood remix and rowdy rathore is telgu remix and in original version of telgu ravi teja actor much better than akshay kumar ,but in bol bachan ajay devgan acting is outstanding than akshay .When i watch telgu and tamil action movie i put ajay devgan in place of all telgu and tamil actor then i found that he is far better than all telgu and tamil actor he is really deadly action acter in whole india .i love like him very much.

      Akki is a bigger star and better actor for me.
      The stunts, action and acting he does is better than both Ajay and Abhishek. My opinion.
      Proof: Both Abhishek and Ajay combined… they wont be able to beat Akki’s solo Rowdy Rathore.

    • xyx

      aesa kuch nahi hai bevkoofo akshay ajay ka baap hai aur ise ajay bhi manta hai

  • sameer

    @vishal; as comparing to action akshay kumar is baap of all actors in Bollywood. Akki is The Real King Of Action. He Does All Of His stunt Himself & not Using Body Double.

  • xyz

    say anything…akii rocks….n rowdy rathore is proof itself…

  • Nitish

    Akki is a bihher star than both Ajay and Abhishek Worldwide and in India also.
    THEY BOTH COMBINED WONT BE ABLE TO BEAT ROWDY RATHORE… SOLO AKSHAY KUMAR.

  • nITISH

    Akki is a BIGGER star than both Ajay and Abhishek Worldwide and in India also.
    THEY BOTH COMBINED WONT BE ABLE TO BEAT ROWDY RATHORE… SOLO AKSHAY KUMAR.

  • roshan

    bol bachhan will rock the box office,it will sure break rowdy rathore’s collection, even after so many critics of trade analysis, and critics of news paper, bol bachhan came very well, medias cant fool the audience, they know, which is bad and good, every time ajay was underestimated, even after being winning to national awards, only khans r much highlighted by medias, ajay dont need any publicity stunts like khans, he is the real hero real actor and even box office smasher, akrosh was very good film regarding honour killing, but because of bad critics of media, the film was not a box office grosser

    • abhilash

      ajay devgan apne papa ki jugad se bollywood mein aaya but akshay kumar apne dum pe

  • suresh thapa

    ajay is far better actor then akshya kumar even though the akshy is action hero. But ajay has proof himself being a versatile actor on the pther hand ajay is only one actor that he ruled as a action hero in bollywood……..Rawody rathore is rekame of south indian movie but bolbachhan is purely bollywood movie…….the acting skill of ajay is far better than akshya kumar…….you can watch the movie Dewange which proof himself that he is one of the versatile actor……..you can see the latest action in Singhammmmmmm……………..on the other hand those who do great stunt cant be a great actor that seems in akshya kumar…………..So ajay Devgan is Malik Bhai in company………Sultan Mirza in once upon time in mumbai…………which increased his performance level in bollywood industry…………..

    • roshan

      abe kyu itna rota hai sub jante hai ki ajay to keval rohit shetty ki vajah se hi chal raha hai jabki akshay kumar apne dum par . Gadha roshan

  • mohsin virgo

    bol bachchan is comedy but the store wi film is rowdy rathore love this film

  • vishal

    akshay kumar is far better than ajay and all three khan but from my view of thinking he only want money-isie liya script kaisa bhi ho accha ho behakar ho kahani ho yeh na ho bas picture sign kar leta hai-his one of the best picture is mohra that ilike

  • sumit roy
