The kind of trending on the weekend and an excellent hold on Monday meant that Airlift was set for a decent score on the Republic Day holiday. this can be exactly what happened as Tuesday brought in further 17.80 crore. With this, the film has currently netted 72.50 crore already which too in a matter of just 5 days.
This also means that the film has already scored higher than the entire 1st week collections of Akshay Kumar’s holiday (67.46 crore), Housefull 2 (64.2 crore), Baby (63.82 crore) and Gabbar Is Back (60 crore), some of his biggest grossers till date. point to be noted is that 2 of these films (Holiday, Housefull 2) went on to be 100 crore grossers and with Airlift enjoying a way bigger momentum already, this milestone is going to be a cakewalk currently.
It is also a provided that the Raja Menon directed film would stand as Akshay Kumar’s Biggest Week One ever as it is about to surpass 1st collections of Rowdy Rathore (79 crore), Singh Is Blinng (77.6 crore), Brothers (72.6 crore).
Everything currently boils down to how rest of the weekdays (today and tomorrow) perform as that may decide the long run of Airlift. Although five crore on each of these days is a given, anything over seven crore each would mean that Airlift would be unstoppable in week to come likewise.
Airlift has currently created an enormous dent at the Box office and it’s time to consolidate and strike gold in days to come.
