We say it’s an industry of the Khans but there is one Kumar whose every movie is a delight. And that’s true not in the case of just the audience but the producers too who invest in his projects. We definitely are talking about Akshay Kumar whose Jolly LLB 2 is still earning big bucks at the box office despite being in its second week. In total, it has earned Rs. 95.44 crore. And by doing so, it has become Akshay’s fifth hit in a row! Let us tell you how.
We will have to rewind to 2015 when Singh is Bliing released. Akshay turned into a Sardar and looked really hot in the film. The lavish settings and his comic performance won many hearts. That turned into rich gains at the box office. It earned Rs. 89.95 crore in its run. It is still Akshay’s highest opener at the box office (Rs. 20.67 crore) and the highest opening weekend grosser (Rs. 54.44 crore). Then came an avalanche of amazing films from the actor in 2016. It began with Airlift (Rs. 128.1 crore), Housefull 3 (Rs. 109.14 crore) and then Rustom (Rs. 127.49 crore). All 100 crore films in just one year! Incredible seems like an understatement in Akshay Kumar’s context now.
Jolly LLB 2’s massive income is an indication that this man is here to make meaningful cinema work wonders at the box office. The recent numbers of the film are as follows:
You can see despite being in the second week, the film has managed to earn big numbers at the box office. The second Friday numbers have already beaten Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil. The film is poised to earn much more than that.
