The film, directed by A.R. Murugadoss and starring Sonakshi Sinha, opened to a rather slow start on Friday morning shows, but picked up in the evening to record the first day total of Rs. 12.18 crore net at the India box office, according to trade figures.
The film has fared well in Mumbai sector and is expected to perform well at single screens across India.
Just for comparison, Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty is the fourth best opener of the year 2014. However, it is far from being the best opener for Akshay Kumar. His best opening film to date is Rowdy Rathore.
Given the film’s 12.18 crore opening, one expects it to mint close to Rs. 40 crore in its opening weekend.
