Way to go Team Rustom!
Rustom has been garnering praise from all across the globe and it looks like Akshay Kumar's latest offering will soon enter the Rs 100 crore club! Well, if that happens, this will be Akki's third film of 2016 to have minted 100 crore at the ticket window.That's awesome! Akshay has set a new record as he's scored a hat-trick by delivering three back-to-back blockbuster hits this year. His previous films of 2016- Airlift and Housefull 3 managed to amass Rs 100 crore within a week and according to trade pundits, Rustom, too, is set to join the bandwagon by tonight. "#Rustom is expected to cross ₹ 100 cr today [Sat]... Will be Akshay Kumar's 6th ₹ 100 cr film so far [3rd consecutive ₹ 100 cr in 2016]," tweeted trade analyst Taran Aadarsh.
Rustom released alongside Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro. It was a tough fight between Akki and Hrithik at the BO but Rustom has clearly emerged as a winner, hereby proving that he is the Box Office king, at least for 2016!

Apart from Akshay's films, its only Salman Khan's Sultan that collected Rs 100 crore within a week of its release. "HINDI FILMS that crossed ₹ 100 cr mark in 2016: #Airlift [Jan], #Housefull3 [June], #Sultan [July]. Now #Rustom. Note: Nett biz. India biz.," he further tweeted.
Happy Bhag Jayegi which released this Friday has opened to a fairly average performance at the Box Office as it collected Rs 2.32 crore. 100 crore doesn't seem like a tough task for Rustom because this week too, hasn't witnessed a big release at the Box Office.
