Singh Is Bliing records highest opening weekend ever for a Akshay Kumar film going past his last release Brothers (52 crore) by a reasonable margin.

Singh Is Bliing has raked in Rs 54.44 crore in its opening weekend. The collections of the film jumped on the third day by around 30 per cent and finally, the cash register started ringing even from Mumbai which underperformed on the first two days.

The film continued its great run at the Box-Office in Delhi and Punjab where it is expected to do well over the week, given the local flavor. The mass dominated circuits like Rajasthan, where there was a drop in collections on Saturday, witnessed a growth on Sunday.

Day wise Collections:

  • Friday: 20.67 crore
  • Saturday: 14.50 crore
  • Sunday: 19.27 crore
  • Total: 54.44 crore

The collections on Monday, if go above 7 crore would suggest a positive word of mouth, while anything below that would suggest a crash in the upcoming days over the week.
