John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate made a whopping Rs 20.52 Crore at the box office on the first day of its release, and the movie might earn much higher numbers in the coming days, all thanks to the weekend. Producer Bhushan Kumar opened up exclusively to Filmibeat and showcased his happiness about the movie having a tremendous opening at the box office despite having an A certificate. He said,
"As per conventional trade wisdom, an Adult certificate for a film would mean an automatic drop in collections by 20%. The first day box office earnings of T-Series and Emmay Entertainment produced Satyameva Jayate, Rs 20.52 Cr has proved tradesmiths wrong. Emmay Entertainment and T-Series are delighted with the love the audience has showered on our film. We are extremely happy with the extraordinary numbers and are optimistic that director Milap Milan Zaveri's labour of love will grow even more after taking such a flying start."
John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate clashed with Akshay Kumar and Mouni Roy starrer Gold at the box office and both the movies had a great opening on Independence Day. The reviews for both the films are positive and the word of mouth will add more footfalls to the theatres, boosting the revenue to a much better number.
The film-makers are proud that Satyameva Jayate became the first A certified film to earn Rs 20.52 Crore at the box office on its first day, and meanwhile we'll have to wait and watch if the John Abraham starrer will further break records in the coming days.
