"'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' picked up rapidly post noon onwards". Mass circuits have performed the best... Shree Narayan Singh's TEPK is able to collect Rs 13.10 crore on its first day of release, which is not a bad figure. India faces a huge issue with open defecation and Akshay wants to end the practice. Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh tweets: #ToiletEkPremKatha Fri ₹ 13.10 cr. Both the movies released across 3000 number of screens and on a non-holiday weekend. Tubelight didn't exactly give box office the 440 watt charge that it required, collecting roughly around Rs 120 crore, so much so Muscle Man Khan has promised to reimburse the distributors with 32 crores, though half of the amount lost.
As we told you earlier, unlike Khans, moreover over the first-day business, Akshay's films look at overall collections. Nevertheless, if the rumours turn out to be true, the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha are in real danger as it may soon be made available online for viewers to download for free. "But second half not as good".
At a 9am screening in a popular South Delhi multiplex, most people who had entered the theater half asleep were seen leaving the hall looking quite happy. But 2nd half not as good. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha features Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar as Keshav and Jaya whose lives take an unexpected turn when Jaya decides to leave her husband for the lack of toilets. 93 crores approximately, while this year's Akshay Kumar release Jolly LLB 2 grossed approximately Rs 12.07 crore. The film was on August 11, 2017 ahead of India's 70th Independence Day.
