Akshay Kumar and Rs 100 crore club are synonymous. His films never get the big numbers like Rs 200-300 crore but he always manages to make industry happy by just earning so much. That’s because he is a smart actor and producer. Toilet Ek Prem Katha has become his 8th film to enter the Rs 100 crore club and tell you what, this is the fastest that his film has ever scored that number. His films have always taken a while to reach that coveted title but fuelled by a great content, TEPK has managed to make that record easily.
Akshay’s Rs 100 crore films are Rowdy Rathore, Holiday: A Soldier is never off duty, Jolly LLB 2, Airlift, Housefull 3, Toilet Ek Prem Katha, Housefull 2 and Rustom. Apart from TEPK and Rustom, all his films took more than 10 days to make it happen. Rustom has taken 9 days to score Rs 100 crore at the box office. And that too when it was rivalling Hrithik Roshan‘s Mohenjo Daro. Content has always been the king in all his movies and that what has helped his films to earn so much money always. Check out the days his films took to gain Rs 100 crore.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha – 8 days
Rustom – 9 days
Airlift – 10 days
Rowdy Rathore – 11 days
Jolly LLB 2 – 12 days
Housefull 3 – 13 days
Holiday: A Soldier is Never Off Duty – 15 days
Housefull 2 – 17 days
Now the wait is to see how much Toilet Ek Prem Katha will earn in the long run. Our prediction says it won’t go beyond Rs 115-117 crore which has been a trend of mostly all his movies. Rowdy Rathore is still his biggest hit which had earned beyond Rs 130 crore. The film has already seen a big slump in collection in the second Friday. Although Saturday and Sunday will be better, it has started to show drop.
