Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha has held fairly well at the domestic box office on its first weekday. The holiday period came to an end on Tuesday, ticket prices at multiplexes dropped to normal weekday rates and the film has managed to collect Rs 6.5 crore.
The hold on Wednesday suggests the film would have collected around 8 crore on Monday and 7.25 crore on Tuesday if both those days were normal working days. This puts the holiday advantage for the film at around 16-17 crore, which the film would’ve lost if it released during a normal week.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha is heading towards first week business of around 95 crore, which will make it the highest first week collection for an Akshay Kumar film – beating ‘Rustom’ during the same period last year.
The growth over the second weekend will decide if the film can go on to become Akshay’s highest grosser (currently Rowdy Rathore) and also beat Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees to emerge as the biggest grosser of the year so far.
