Sonakshi Sinha’s Akira saw a marginal increase of its box office earring on Saturday by earning Rs 5.3 crore.
The film opened at Rs 5.15 crore, which was less than expected in spite of its hype and interest as one of a kind of action flick starred by a woman and with no real male lead,
On Sunday it showed a surge and collected Rs 6.2 crore,
However, the Sonakshi Sinha, Anurag Kashyap film passed the all-important Monday test by earning Rs 3.4 crore at the domestic BO.
This brings the total earning of the film to Rs 20.05 crore. A trade analyst weeted on Monday, “#Akira Fri 5.15 cr, Sat 5.30 cr, Sun 6.20 cr, Mon 3.40 cr. Total: ₹ 20.05 cr. India biz. STEADY!”
Traditionally, films with a female protagonist seems to be failing at the box office with a few notable exceptions.
Hope Sonakshi and AR Murugadoss film can turn the tables.
The film has done decent business the internationally. “#Akira does decent biz Overseas… Opening weekend: $ 867,000 [₹ 5.76 cr]… Best in UAE-GCC [$ 425,000] and Pakistan [$ 118,000]” according to a Tweet by the analyst. – CINEWS
