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. Takes a FAB START at plexes across major centres.

Gold, also starring Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sunny Kaushal and Mouni Roy, has emerged to be Akshay Kumar's biggest opening till date.

The sports drama revolves around independent India's first Olympic gold win - a feat achieved by the Indian men's hockey team in 1948 at the 14th London Olympiad.


Helmed by Reema Kagti, "Gold" hit the screens on Independence Day. Set at the backdrop of India winning its first gold medal in hockey as a free nation in the 1948 Summer Olympics, the film promises to be yet another big one from Akki. According to Boxofficeindia it is the highest opening day ever for an Akshay Kumar film as it beat the Rs 16.98 crore worth collection of Singh Is Bling, which was released on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2) in 2015.

Gold witnessed a significant dip in its collection on its second day, given that it was a working day. Though this may seem like a fall when compared to the superb collections that the films had on their opening day when over Rs. 25 crore and Rs. 20 crore respectively came in, the fact still remains that the films are decent if one looks at it from absolute numbers perspective. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the box office earning of Satyameva Jayate on Thursday was Rs 7.92 crore, making its total revenue Rs 28.44 crore.
