Khiladi 786 starring Akshay Kumar and Asin in the leads, has done good collection at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. The masala entertainer has raked in approximately Rs 34.30 crores at the domestic business centres in three days. It has shattered the opening weekend record of Akki's last release OMG! Oh My God, but it has failed to smash the record of his another release of 2012, Rowdy Rathore, which has been the biggest opener of Akshay so far.
Khiladi 786, which released in 2,786 screens in the country on December 7, registered an average of 90% occupancy in single screens and 60% occupancy in multiplexes across the country on Friday. The Akshay-Asin starrer collected Rs 10.40 crores at the domestic Box Office on the first day. With this, it failed to break the record of Aamir Khan's Talaash, which has raked in Rs 13.72 crores from 2,600 screens in the country on its opening day.
Khiladi 786 received mixed reviews from film critics. The word of mouth was expected to take its business upwards over the weekend. Its collection went up, but not upto the mark. It earned Rs 11.15 crores on Saturday and approximately Rs 12.75 crores on Sunday. It has collected a total of Rs 33.5 crores nett at the domestic collection centres in the first weekend.
However, Talaash had collected Rs 47+ crores from 2,600 screens at the desi Box Office in the opening weekend. Khiladi 786, which released in more number of screens when compared to it, was expected to surpass Rs 50 crore mark in the first week, but it could not. It should be seen whether it will cross this mark at least in the first week.
