Mumbai, 11 Aug 2022: The other big release of the day Rakshabandhan starring Akshay Kumar has also been released today but much like its contemporary Laal Singh Chaddha even Rakshabandhan has failed on the opening front.
The early estimated collections are set to be around 9cr net box office collections which are fine for the type of content the film is offering but considering the film is an Akshay Kumar starrer who has a solid initial star power then the opening is disappointing.Raksha Bandhan Day 1 Occupancy Details
The opening day figures of Raksha Bandhan will be going to be lesser than Akshay Kumar's last two films Samrat Prithiviraj and Bachchan Pandey. Both of them scored double-digit marks comfortably which was the target for Raksha Bandhan.
The plus point is that the film is driven by middle-class audiences so the film can see some growth in the premium multiplexes on Saturdays and Sundays. The film is in a much safer position than its rival film Laal Singh Chaddha due to way lower cost and this is what matters the most.
Even if Raksha Bandhan sees normal growth over the next couple of days then it will be a good sign for the Industry. The film will be helped by a huge national holiday on Monday in the form of Independence day. The audience word of mouth seems rather mixed but better than Laal Singh Chaddha which should help the film to sustain at the box office.About This Movie
