The original ‘Khiladi’ of Bollywood is back! Rowdy Rathore has smashed box-office records on Sunday as the film has beaten the first Sunday collections of Bodyguard and Dabangg. Full list below!
Note: Some films had extended 4 – 5 day weekends, due to which the first Sunday was not the third day after release. In some cases, Sunday wasn’t the first holiday of the extended weekend either. Also, the Sunday collections of Rowdy Rathore are early estimates. Check back a little later for updates.

Akshay Kumar has just delivered a ‘440 volt ka jatka’ to his critics, who wrote him off after the failure of films like Action Replay, Patiala House and Desi Boyz. Unlike Housefull 2 which was a multi-starrer, Rowdy Rathore was a solo-film relying almost entirely on Akshay’s star power.
A special mention for Sonakshi Sinha, the female lead in both Rowdy Rathore and Dabangg!
