Effect of clashing with Aamir
Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan clashed with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha at the box office. And this clash did not affect Akshay Kumar much. Since Akshay Kumar’s film was so weak on its own that even if Aamir’s film didn’t come, Akshay couldn’t earn much.
very low opening
Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan opened just 8 crores at the box office. The film registered an occupancy of just 20 percent at the box office.The theaters started with just 9 percent, but Raksha Bandhan night started earning.
fell the next day
Akshay Kumar could not handle the weight of Raksha Bandhan and crashed at the box office on the second day itself. On Friday, August 12, the film earned only 6 crores.
He didn’t even win on the third day
On the third day too, Akshay Kumar’s film did not show any growth at the box office. The film registered only 15 percent occupancy on the third day. Although it was Saturday, the audience did not make it to the theater. The occupancy of the morning shows was 8%, and by the evening this figure reached 19% and fell again at night.
Opening less than flop movies
It is worth noting that Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan also broke the record of both his super flops of this year, Samrat Prithviraj and Bachchan Pandey by earning 8 crores. While Bachchan Pandey had a 13 crore opening on Holi, Samrat Prithviraj gave a 10 crore opening even without any festival release.
1000 shows cancelled
On the very first day of Raksha Bandhan, a lot was told about its story. The word of mouth about the film was so negative that tickets for the film were sold very less the very next day. Even 1000 shows of Raksha Bandhan were canceled because there was no audience in the theatre.
80 crore raksha bandhan
The budget of Raksha Bandhan was said to be around 80 crores, but in three days the film earned only 21 crores. The bad word of mouth of the film also ensured that the audience would no longer be interested in watching this film. In such a situation, it seems impossible to retrieve his budget at the box office of the film at the moment.
