Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif-starrer ‘Sooryavanshi’ is a “Diwali gift” for Bollywood as it has been a “running riot” at the box office, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
The film raked in as much as ₹ 26.94 crore on November 7. The total collections of the film now stand at ₹ 77.08 crore (India business).
Sharing the overall box office report of ‘Sooryavanshi’, Taran Adarsh wrote: “Sooryavanshi brings joy, hope, confidence, optimism back… Emerges a #Diwali gift for the industry… runs riot at the box office on Day 3… Proves (yet again): Well-made entertainers will NEVER go out of fashion… Fri 26.29 crore, Sat 23.85 crore Sun 26.94 crore. Total: ₹ 77.08 crore. #India business.”.
Trade analyst Komal Nahta said: “With ‘Sooryavanshi’ bringing in such figures, I think the flow of releases will continue for the next six-eight months”.
Media and Internet research analyst Karan Taurani said the film will record a “lifetime earning” of Rs 140-150 crore, “which is 30 percent below pre-Covid levels”.
The box office, though, will only do better once the limitation of 50 percent occupancy is lifted across states. “It is very important for the relaxation to happen,” Taurani said, adding the momentum is likely to be maintained over the next two-three weeks because more content-rich medium- and big-budget films are coming.
