John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate has reportedly minted an estimated Rs 46.65 crore at the box office, so far. That’s a strong showing for a vigilante drama considering it released with another patriotic Independence Day week offering -- Akshay Kumar’s Gold, which opened with Rs 25.25 crore on Wednesday and has crossed the Rs 50-crore mark with its Saturday earning.

Satyameva Jayate pulled off plenty of stunts in its box-office debut on Independence Day — and not just the ones featuring its leading man, John Abraham’s Vir, a scud missile of a man who goes on a vigilante spree across Mumbai, ritualistically murdering crooked cops. Despite mixed reviews, Milap Milan Zaveri-directed Satyameva Jayate is a major win for its cast — including Manoj Bajpayee and Aisha Sharma — and a testament to John’s continued star power.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the box office earning of Satyameva Jayate on day 2 was Rs 7.92 crore, after opening on Wednesday with Rs 19.75 crore.The film earned Rs 7.5 crore on Thursday and Rs 7.25 crore approximately on Friday, reported Box Office India.

A source close to film’s producers said about Satyameva Jayate’s box office performance on Independence Day, “The film opened at Rs 19.75 crore despite having the heavyweight Gold releasing simultaneously. As was expected, Gold got the gentry (or the multiplex audience in big metros) while John’s film got a mix of some multiplexes and many single screens across India.”
