Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur starrer film ‘Airlift’ has been applauded for its concept and execution has also created large numbers in its collections. The film is already declared as the first hit of 2016. With the film even Akshay’s performance as an actor received great compliments.
The genre of the film was a win- win situation for the collections. The movie released with an adult comedy but due to the mass appeal stole all the collections. The film also got the advantage of the holiday of Republic day which gave a boost to its collections. The songs of the film were also hummable and created a greater recall value amidst the viewers.
Airlift is following a similar pattern every week and showing excellent collections on Saturday. The film showed a rise of 75-80% on its third Saturday. Airlift collected Rs 1.25 crore net approx. (Rs 12 million net approx) on its second Friday. On it’s third Saturday the film collected Rs 2.25 crore net approx. (Rs 22 million net approx.), which is still very good, as it has Sunny Deol’s Ghayal Once Again in tough competition.
So the total collection till date is Rs 109.14 crore net approx.
‘Airlift’ revolves around a true story which showcases the scenario of the Gulf war. The movie highlights the time when Kuwait was invaded and thousands of Indians were stranded without any hope. The film brings into light the largest evacuation mission carried out by India.
