Tomorrow is the D-day as two Bollywood biggies, Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal and John Abraham's Batla House will hit the screens and we are expecting both the films to open well at the box office. Talking about the advance booking report, the space drama film has made the collections of Rs 9 to 10 crore till yesterday, on the other hand, the cop actioner has raked in around Rs 5 crore. So as per the early trends, Mission Mangal is way ahead of its contemporary and the opening day figures of the Akshay Kumar starrer will definitely above Rs 30 crore on its opening day at the ticket windows.
Akshay plays a scientist in "Mission Mangal", which also stars actresses Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen. Talking about the film, Akshay said, "I've told my five heroines that I have produced the film and I don't know whether it will be a hit or a flop, but I can assure this much that they would feel very proud of being a part of this film. It is a good and clean film.".
On the other hand, Batla House marks the second collaboration between John Abraham and Nikkhil Advani after Salaam-E-Ishq. John Abraham portrays the character of ACP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav in Batla House. Talking about the film, Nikkhil had earlier told Ahmedabad Mirror, “The encounter will be seen from three perspectives—that of the police, those present near the location, many of whom believed that the bullets flying were for the TV serial Swabhimaan which was being shot in the vicinity just two days ago, and the real picture.” Nikkhil also said that John perfectly fits the bill and he will pull off his character effortlessly. “Sanjeev Kumar Yadav wanted a physically and mentally strong actor and John fits the bill. With a little light on him and a flash of those dimples, John stands out in a crowd. The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in.” The film also stars Nora Fatehi, Ravi Kishan and Mrunal Thakur in key roles.
