The film has got the cash registers ringing...
Akshay Kumar's latest outing Singh Is Bliing is turning out to be a huge blockbuster at the box office. The film which also stars Amy Jackson and Lara Dutta in lead roles hit the screens yesterday and has already minted a whopping sum of Rs 20.67 crore on Day 1. Yes! Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh just tweeted the promising figures. He wrote, "#SinghIsBliing has a SPECTACULAR start... Emerges Akshay Kumar's BIGGEST opener... Fri ₹ 20.67 cr. India biz."
Although Singh Is Bliing garnered mixed reviews from the critics, but the film has successfully managed to pull in crowd to the cinema halls. The 3-day long weekend courtesy Gandhi Jayanti has come in major advantage for the film. In fact, Singh Is Bliing also doesn't seem to be facing any threat from Irrfan Khan starrer Talvar, which released on the same day. Talvar despite getting positive reviews is sadly off to a slow start, by merely collecting Rs 3 crore on Day 1.
Nevertheless, talking about Akki's undisputed box office success, Singh Is Bliing can now be crowned as Akshay's biggest box office opener ever, hence beating Brothers (15.2 crore) by a margin of around 35%. It has also managed to become Bollywood’s second biggest opening day of 2015 after Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan which earned 27.25 crore, on its first day. Not just for Akshay, Singh Is Bliing also turns out to be director Prabhudheva’s biggest opening day ever, hence beating Rowdy Rathore (15.1 crore) by a margin of around 35%. And last but not the least, the film's opening figures have even benefitted Amy Jackson, making it her second biggest opening day after this year’s South release I, which had netted 22 crore across all languages.
Kudos to the entire team of Singh Is Bliing!
