The word of mouth isn’t too great, the critics have thrashed it, yet Kambakht Ishq has witnessed a historic opening at the box-office.
And the only man solely responsible for the historic opening is, Akshay Kumar. You cannot deny that. If there were any doubts about Akshay’s star power, its been cleared now. What’s surprising is, even though his last few films were terribly poor and low on quality, the audience continue to support his movies and watch him on screen. Star power at its very best!!
Now, with Kambakht Ishq having won the initial battle, which not many expected it to, can it beat the two biggies of last year; Shahrukh Khan’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Aamir Khan’s Ghajini?
Beating Ghajini looks unlikely, but the 85 crore odd all India record of SRK’s Rab Ne.. looks well within reach, what with just the first day collections of Kambakht Ishq almost touching 9 crores!
So if KI doesn’t crash on Monday and does well over the next weekend, it could well be Akshay Kumar’s biggest hit ever.
What do you think, can Kambakht Ishq beat Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi?
