Trade analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted earlier, “#Rustom continued to dominate the marketplace, despite a plethora of fresh releases… [Week 2] Fri 4.41 cr. Total: ₹ 95.31 cr. India biz.”(sic)
Besides, Akshay’s Airllift and Housefull 3 were other big hits this year to enter Rs 100 crore club. Also, his biggest hit so far is Rowdy Rathore with Rs 134 crore in box office collection.
‘Rustom’ is doing well internationally also. Taran tweeted “#Rustom fares VERY WELL Overseas… Week 1: $ 3.77 million [₹ 25.31 cr].” (sic)
