Sooryavanshi: Akshay-Katrina`s film earns Rs 77.08 crore in 3 days at the BO

With its dazzling star cast including Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh, action-packed storyline, and producer-director Rohit Shetty`s Midas touch, Sooryavanshi has lit up the box-office, netting Rs 77.08 crore on the opening weekend. Though the film encountered a minor drop in collections on Saturday, by Sunday, it bounced back and sent off the Diwali weekend with Rs 70-80 crore in its kitty. The story is similar to that of Shetty`s 2017 film “Golmaal Again”.

Talking about the impressive numbers, senior trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted: “#Sooryavanshi brings joy, hope, confidence, optimism back… Emerges a #Diwali gift for the industry… RUNS RIOT at #BO on Day 3… Proves *yet again*: Well-made entertainers will NEVER go out of fashion… Fri 26.29 cr, Sat 23.85 cr, Sun 26.94 cr. Total: ₹ 77.08 cr. #India biz.”

Adarsh said the film had also demolished the myth that OTT platforms had rung the death knell of cinema viewing in theatres. He said: “Since the lockdown happened, a lot of people have been watching films on OTT platforms. As a result, experts said now that people have got a choice, it`s over for cinema, they said. These people had started referring to cinema theatres in the past tense. All that has been proven wrong, and how! And one man, Rohit Shetty, is behind this massive revival.”

He added: “I have been talking to producers, distributors and exhibitors. They are all so rejuvenated now. They had announced new films, but they were wondering if people would come. `Sooryavanshi` took the risk and its success has drawn the others back.”
