Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte's Pad Man witnessed a huge dip on its seventh day at the box office. The biographical sports drama collected Rs 3.78 crore yesterday and now stands with the grand total of Rs 62.87 crore. Despite having some partial holidays in the weekdays, the collections of the film didn't perform as the per the expectations.
Since Aiyaary and Black Panther has released today, Pad Man has faced a huge screen crunch at the box office. It'll be interesting to see whether the film will cross Rs 70 crore mark by the end of its second weekend. By looking at the current trend, we can say that Pad Man has been one of the lowest grossers of Akshay Kumar in the last three years. Apart from the lead cast, the film also stars Sonam Kapoor in a key role along with a cameo of Amitabh Bachchan.
Unlike Akshay Kumar’s other films, Pad Man has a very niche appeal due to its unconventional subject and plot. The film is primarily targeted to the multiplex audience in the metro cities. Since the film is made on the expensive budget of around 75 crore, Pad Man needs to earn well not only for makers but also for distributors and exhibitors. Anyway, do you think Pad Man will be sixth consecutive Rs 100 crore film of Akshay Kumar after Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom, Jolly LLB 2 and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha?
