The Zee Studios & KriArj entertainment-produced Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Rustom’ has garnered a box office collection of a whopping 14.11 cr on day 1 in India from 2317 screens in India, higher than the opening of Airflift that was a solo release. On the other hand, Mohenjo Daro, that released the same day has garnered 8.75 cr. from approx.2600 screens.
Zee Studios Business Head Akash Chawla says, “It has all come together for us as Zee Studios with Rustom. The film has opened up to a great response and collections. With figures just coming in the film has opened to a Million dirhams in UAE on day 1 and 1.3Mn Dirhams on day 2. Overall, its 14.11 cr in India on day 1 and 1.24 mn USD overseas which is higher than Airlift. When your star goes all out like Akshay has, it makes a huge difference. In Overseas, Zee is the biggest platform and that is a clear advantage that we bring from a marketing & distribution angle as Zee Studios when we distribute overseas. Finally, KriArj is a very valuable partner to work with and we look forward to more collaborations.”
Virender Arora and Arjun N.Kapoor of KriArj entertainment said, "We are very pleased with the response Rustom has received from the viewers. There is a sense of gratification to have justified the tremendous anticipation that got built around our film with a movie that has met such tall expectations."
The Akshay Kumar starrer has seen a lot of positive reviews and is going very strong on day 2 as well. With more holidays in this week, this film looks to be a Zee Studios winner.
