Independence Day releases ‘Gold’, ‘Satyameva Jayate’ storm the box office

It seems like the national holiday has paid off for both Bollywood releases this year with Akshay Kumar's Gold and John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate together bringing in more than Rs 40 crore in net box office collections, besides the highest opening day figures for the two lead actors individually. But the Milap Zaveri-directed film has registered a "decent" total on Day 4 - Rs 7.25 crore - and the film's total collection now stands at Rs 40.75 crore, the report added. This makes the total four-day box office collections of the film to stand at Rs 41 crore nett approx. However, Gold managed to surpass the collection of Satyameva Jayate and now stands at Rs 55 crore. Producer Bhushan Kumar opened up exclusively to Filmibeat and showcased his happiness about the movie having a tremendous opening at the box office despite having an A certificate. Though, the increase in collections of Satyameva Jayate havent't been as notable as in the case of Gold, the John Abraham starrer has managed to maintain a steady hold at the ticket windows.

Gold earned good moolah on its opening day.

Satyameva Jayate has also stayed strong over the weekend.

Kvitova continues to impress in Cincinnati
Number eight seed Kvitova applied the pressure from the start, breaking 23-time grand slam victor Williams twice in the first set. Tenth-seeded Julia Goerges was losing to Kristina Mladenovic 6-4, 3-2 when she retired because of a lower left leg injury.

To be sure, the Independence Day festive weekend has been Kumar's mainstay so far.

Interestingly, had there been no Independence Day to boost sales, both the films wouldn't have managed to put such a big total, even if the first Sunday biz saw huge numbers. The Akshay Kumar starrer is expected to cross the Rs 100-crore mark this week.

Box office collections might actually not be as catastrophic as they are made out be.
