Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will mark Akshay Kumar’s second film this year and trade analysts are confident that this film will be one of the biggest openers of the year. They say it may cross the Rs 50 crore mark within the first weekend.

In an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, trade analyst Girish Johar said,”I am expecting a good number. Somewhere between Rs 13 to Rs 15 crore on Friday. By the end of the weekend, it would be ideal if the film crosses the half century mark (Rs 5o crore mark).”

Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha also has the advantage of the Independence Day holiday which falls on Tuesday. The film is expected to dominate the box office if it delivers powerful content.

“There are no good films at the box office. The actual word-of-mouth might boost Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. It will definitely affect the collection of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal and Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor’s Mubarakan. This is the biggest release of the week so far and naturally, this will be the first choice of movie-goers this weekend. Also, people have not liked the content of Jab Harry Met Sejal,” Girish added.

      This will be a big block buster. First is the message conveyed by the film and second is Akshay Kumar, who is far far better than the pathetic SRK and Salman on portraying a difficult character. Good luck to the movie team.

        The trailer of the movie so far suggests to carry a social message which is need of the day and hence should be made Tax Free.

            SRK's Harry Met Sejal did 15 crore on day one and had a 45.75 crore weekend, and the film was slammed as a flop. If Akshay's Toilet Katha does 13-15 crore on day one and manages 50 crore on opening weekend, then it will be a hit, according to this writer. please get her head checked.

              A hit or flop is decided by the actual cost and boxoffice collection ratio. While an SRK movie will be expensive for obvious reasons, an AK movie, particularly this one, will be a small budget film. So any BO collection above the total cost will be considered hit.

                  How can you take quote of someone from the production company? Moreover Girish Johar is not an trade expert. He is working for a corporate company. Why don't you take quote from some other company employees?
