According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has earned 97.56 crore at the box office in its first weekend and will enter 100 crore club on Monday. John Abraham’s Batla House, which also released over the Independence Day, is also heading towards 50-crore mark.

This has also made Mission Mangal Akshay Kumar’s biggest opener till date. “MissionMangal is Akshay Kumar’s biggest opener to date [opening weekend biz]... 1.

Earlier, trade analyst Girish Johar had told Hindustan Times, “Both films can survive on their own. The history is proof that if two good films release at the same time, both perform well at the box office. Each film has to fight its own battle. Yes, there is some rub-off between the two but eventually the better film overpowers the other.”
