#Sooryavanshi crosses ₹ 50 cr… SUPER-STRONG HOLD on Day 2… Slight dip in night shows vis-à-vis Day 1… Expect a BIGGG SCORE on Day 3, should comfortably cross ₹ 75 cr, may even touch ₹ 80 cr [+/-], PHENOMENAL… Fri 26.29 cr, Sat 23.85 cr. Total: ₹ 50.14 cr. #India biz. pic.twitter.com/35eSgW3QUg— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) November 7, 2021
Taran also shared that the box office performance of Sooryavanshi is better than Akshay’s pre-pandemic releases like Kesari, Housefull 4 and Good Newwz. It is a major achievement considering Maharashtra and some other regions are functioning at 50 per cent capacity for cinema halls.
The film has been long awaited and had to hold back the release plans twice because of two back to back lockdowns. Natural to expect that the combination of the occasion and the big bill film would bring the confidence back for both, the film trade as well as the audience.
