The film continues to perform well at the box office...
After a very good start to 2016, Akshay Kumar has emerged with another hit - Rustom. The actor started off the year with a tremendous film like Airlift, followed by a comic relief - Housefull 3. He is back again with a thriller in the form of Rustom which is based on the Nanavati case of 1959 and we have to say that it is marvellous. Not only have the people have liked the film, but in fact, it opened well at the box office too. On day one (Friday) it collected Rs 14.11 crore, followed by Rs 16.43 crore on day two (Saturday) and Rs 19.88 crore on day three (Sunday).
Monday being a holiday (Independence day), Rustom enjoyed an extended weekend and continued to perform well at the box office. As trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed on Twitter, "#Rustom packs a SOLID PUNCH in its extended 4-day weekend...

Akshay Kumar's Rustom clashed with Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro and even though it got lesser number of screens, it managed to beat the historic drama. The critics as well as the public have favoured Rustom over Mohenjo Daro and with a good word of mouth for Rustom, it will continue to perform well over the first week. On top of all this, no big release is coming out this week, the film will have a good second weekend too!
