Rustom box office collection should make Akshay Kumar a very happy man. The actor is getting a third entrant in the Rs 100-crore club in 2016 and with Rustom, whose box office collection after six days is over Rs 80 crore, he may get his fastest entrant in the club.

The courtroom drama which stars Akshay as a Navy officer is still running across and is facing a festive weekend with only Happy Bhaag Jayegi — starring Abhay Deol and Diana penty — as its competition. On August 12, when Rustom released, it faced mightier competition in Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Rustom Fri 14.11 cr, Sat 16.43 cr, Sun 19.88 cr, Mon 17.81 cr, Tue 7.67 cr, Wed 6.38 cr. Total: ₹ 82.28 cr. India biz. SUPER!” On Wednesday, which is a bank holiday, Rustom was expected to earn between Rs 8-10 crore, but still managed to rake in Rs. 6.38 cr at the box office. It is followed by another holiday on account of Rakshabandhan when the film is expected to ramp up its earning.

As of now, Akshay’s fastest entrant in the Rs 100-crore club is Airlift which made it in 10 days. Housefull 3, Akshay’s other big hit of 2016, managed the milestone in 13 days. Rustom would be sixth film of Akshay to make it to the club, his other films being Airlift, Housefull 3, Rowdy Rathore, Housefull 2 and Holiday.

Inspired by the Nanavati murder case and given the typical Akshay Kumar patriotic twist, Rustom released to largely positive reviews. Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai and starring Ileana D’Cruz and Esha Gupta, Rustom was made at a budget of Rs 50 crore. It has again proved that Akshay Kumar has aced the formula of making story-driven films at a comparatively lower budget that find favour with the audiences.
