Akshay Kumar’s Boss box office collection reports are encouraging. It has collected Rs 300 million and is doing well in small cities

Mr Khiladi Akshay Kumar’s Boss is going steady at the box office across India. Though as anticipated it is not doing too well at the multiplexes, it is doing very well in small cities and towns in single screen theatres. To be true, Akshay has never really attracted the audience in metros where the likes of Ranbir Kapoor, Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh have got their millions and millions of fans. For the likes of Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan their core supporters are based in India’s rural areas that house around seventy percent of the Indian population.

There were high hopes from Akshay Kumar’s recent release, ‘Boss’ after his last big budget film made with over Rs 90 crore, ‘Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobara’ flopped completely just two months ago. It failed to even recover its investment. Reports suggest that its total box office collection was a mere Rs 65 crore, making it the biggest flop of the year.

In comparison his latest film is doing quite good. Its day one collection on Eid al Adha or Badi Eid was Ra 11 core. On the second day its collection went down to Rs 7 crore, but that was a working day and so that seemed rather very decent. Reports suggest that its three day collection was as high as Rs 8.5 crore, showing the fact that it is going to pick substantially on Saturday and Sunday.
