Son of Sardar outgrosses JTHJ all India once again

As per Koimoi: Tuesday – JTHJ : 4.5cr, SoS : 4.75 Cr

The impressive thing about this from SoS point of view is that it is doing it on 500 less screens.

Koimoi also says, “It was expected that the movie will cross the 100 Crore mark in its 1st weekend itself. However, now it seems that it might not reach there even by the end of its 1st extended weekend.

The film was supposed to take advantage of the improved situation in Mumbai circuits, but that too didn’t work out to a considerable extent.”

“Getting into the 100 crore club is a stress I go through five to six times a year” – Akshay Kumar

Q. The last Khiladi movie (Khiladi 420) released in 2000. Now there’s Khiladi 786. Why the long gap?

There’s no specific reason. But yes, I intentionally avoided action films
for a while. I got married in 2001 and in 2002 I was blessed with a son
(Aarav). With the added responsibilities I wanted to avoid dangerous
stunts. So I took a sabbatical from action films. I wanted to focus on
comedy, emotions and drama.

Akshay Kumar’s OMG! most viewed Hindi film on TV

Akshay Kumar starrer OMG!Oh My God! has been criticised by several
right winged groups and the BJP is all set to raise the issue of how films
like this attacks Hindu beliefs, in the Winter Session of Parliament. But it
seems, the audiences love it. Not only was this small budget film a box
office success but it was also the most viewed Hindi film on television last week.

According to a TV search and electronic guide provider company, What’s-On-India’s (WOI) report Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal starrer comedy film, OMG! Oh My God, pipped two of Aamir Khan’s blockbuster
films 3 Idiots and Ghajini to top the Hindi Movies category. While 3
Idiots took the second position, Ghajini was third. Akshay again featured
on the list with Rowdy Rathore in fourth spot. Salman Khan’s Ek Tha
Tiger (Sony) took the fifth spot.

There wasn’t much change in the Hindi TV show category with Bigg Boss
still clinching the top spot. However, CID which started almost a decade

once again settled for the second spot and Bade Acche Lagte Hain
climbed to the third position. Balika Vadhu dropped two spots to fifth.

In the English Movies category, The Hangover Part II toppled critically
acclaimed movies like Inception, X-Men: First Class and Slumdog
Millionaire to grab the top spot. While Leonardo Dicaprio starrer
Inception took the second position, X-Men: First Class and Slumdog
Millionaire took the third and fourth positions respectively. Real Steel
took the fifth spot. Continue reading
