A couple of weeks back released action thriller Sooryavanshi still has a very good hold over the audience in India and is likely to touch the 180-crore mark by this weekend. With two newly awaited Hindi films – Satyamev Jayate 2 and Antim: The Final Truth releasing next week, it will be interesting to see if Sooryavanshi will be able to enter the 200-crore club in its lifetime.
Despite having the new offering Bunty Aur Babli 2 in parallel, Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty’s first-ever collaboration Sooryavanshi is maintaining a good pace in its third weekend and minted the amount of 3.26 crores on Friday. With a decent jump on Saturday, it raked the business of 3.77 crores on Saturday and put up a total of 173.27 crores nett (204.33 crores gross) after 16 days at the domestic box office.
