Kesari box office collection: The Akshay Kumar-starrer picked up the pace on Saturday, after a fall in the collections during the weekdays. The film is now closer to the Rs 150-crore mark. After a dull collection at the box office on Friday, it earned Rs 2.62 crore on Saturday. On Friday, the Anurag Singh directorial venture had earned only Rs 1.65 crore. However, how soon it strikes the Rs 150-crore mark, will depend on how the film trends during weekdays and Sunday.
The film has so far earned Rs 139.79 crore in India collection. Film trade analyst and critic in a tweet said that the film might witness a better collection on Sunday. "#Kesari picks up speed on [third] Sat... Should score again today [Sun]... The journey thereafter - towards ₹ 150 cr - is dependant on how it trends on weekdays and Weekend 4... [Week 3] Fri 1.65 cr, Sat 2.62 cr. Total: ₹ 139.79 cr. India biz," Adarsh tweeted today.
Based on the Battle of Saragarhi fought in 1897, the film's storyline revolves around the valour of Sikh soldiers under the leadership of Havildar Ishar Singh (Akshay Kumar). This is an unequal battle that was fought against Afghan invaders by the 36th Sikh Regiment of the British Indian Army. These soldiers led by Singh fought against 10,000 Afghan troops. The unmatched heroism caught the imagination of the audience.
The film had collected over Rs 21 crore on the first day itself, which is the highest opening collection of this year for a Bollywood movie, despite it was released in the second half of the day due to Holi.
