Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan did not only open to poor Box Office collections but has continued to stay that way now. The movie picked up very slightly on Sunday and came close to opening day collections but this film is yet to earn even Rs. 10 crores in a day. Overall, it has not even come close to Rs. 30 crores nett Box Office.
Raksha Bandhan has minted only Rs. 27 crores at the Box Office so far. The movie, much like Laal Singh Chaddha, is highly unlikely to touch even Rs. 50 crore mark.
Akshay’s film, however, has been working well in parts of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Despite these places performing, Raksha Bandhan did not get the kind of jump it required on Sunday.
While Raksha Bandhan opened at Rs. 8 crores on Thursday, the film minted Rs. 7.25 crores on Sunday. The movie saw a major drop on Friday and Saturday, which is when it should have picked up since the holiday mood was just setting in.
The film earned Rs. 6.25 crores on Friday, which was more than Rs. 2 crores drop from the opening day. It was worse on Saturday since the movie managed to earn only Rs. 5.75 crores, which is its lowest till date.
Unfortunately, Raksha Bandhan might end up being Akshay Kumar’s third consecutive flop in 2022. The first movie featuring him which was rejected was Bachchhan Paandey and Samrat Prithviraj did not work at the Box Office too well either.
Now, all eyes are on Akshay’s upcoming movie with Jacqueline Fernandez, Ram Setu. The story will try to find out if the pathway Lord Hanuman created for Lord Ram still exists.
