Akshay Kumar sets the standards
It has become impossible to determine the final milestone of the film “Rowdy Rathore”, starring Akshay Kumar. Since 3 weeks of the movie release, it continues to garb more and more attention of the audience worldwide. Not only this, Rowdy Rathore has found a subtle place in the top-5 Bollywood films of all times, surpassing Sharukh Khan as well as Hrithik Roshan. This movie has been recorded as Akshay Kumars solo blockbuster.
A reliable source reveals, “Rowdy Rathore has now comfortably surpassed 120 crores in its third weekend itself, hence leaving behind the likes of Ra One (115 crore), Agneepath (120 crores) and for that matter even Salman Khan’s Ready (121 crores).” Taking into consideration, the only movie left as much as a challenge for Akshay Kumar to compete with is Dabangg and Bodyguard which have covered a much larger distance heading towards 140 crore each.
An insider also comments upon this “It would be quite difficult to cross that milestone though since in coming weeks, Akshay Kumar faces challenge from Shahid Kapoor (Teri Meri Kahaani) and The Amazing Spiderman which arrive back to back. However Rowdy Rathore would now come close to the 135 crore mark, which is a huge achievement considering the fact that Akshay Kumar was facing rough weather during last year. Now with both Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore doing so well, Akshay Kumar is finding a very strong positioning for him (with Aamir Khan ruling from the top, courtesy 3 Idiots at 202 crores), things have heated up all over again.”
