This Independence Day turned out to be a very happy one for Akshay Kumar and John Abraham as their latest releases, Gold and Satyameva Jayate, have become the biggest openers of their respective careers.
While Gold, which is a period sports drama, earned Rs. 25.25 crore on Wednesday, Satyameva Jayate, an action-thriller, raked in Rs. 20.52 crore. With this, Satyameva Jayate has also become the highest opening day earner for a film with an A certificate.
Gold has taken over Singh is Bliing, which was previously Akki’s highest opener (20.67 crore). Earlier, Race 2, which had collected Rs. 15.10 crore on day one, was John’s numero uno opener.
The weekend collection will decide which film will win this box-office race.
