Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has rekindled flames the box office, set alight by Baahubali 2 in April and then doused by the under-performance of films such as Tubelight and Jab Harry Met Sejal. Despite being reviewed poorly, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has collected Rs. 51.45 crore in its first three days, reports trade analyst Taran Adarsh – this is a better showing than Mr Adarsh’s predicted Rs. 48 crore opening weekend.
Toilet’s graph has moved steadily north since Friday – the film scored Rs. 13.10 crore on Day 1 and on Saturday, hiked its collections by Rs. 4 crores, making a little over Rs. 17 crores. Sunday’s collection of Rs. 21 crore was ‘extraordinary,’ reports Mr Adarsh. Toilet: Ek Prem Katha co-stars Bhumi Pednekar.
