Box Office: Akshay Kumar's Rustom has a clear lead over Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro

Akshay Kumar's Rustom witnessed a jump in collections on 13 August, the second day of its theatrical run. The film raked in around Rs 16.43 crore - taking the two-day total to Rs 30.54 crore.

The film witnessed a growth in collections across the country, including at the mass circuits, thanks to the mostly-positive reviews for the Tinu Suresh Desai-directorial.

The film will now be able to reap the benefit of the 14 and 15 August public holidays - which will ensure extended weekend collections of over Rs 65 crore.

If Rustom manages to sustain its collections after the four-day weekend, it will establish itself as the second super-hit of the year for Akshay Kumar after Airlift.

On the other hand, Mohenjo Daro witnessed a minor jump in collections on 13 August. The film raked in around Rs 9.75 crore - taking the two-day total to Rs 19 crore.

The word of mouth surrounding the Hrithik Roshan-film is mixed. The film has performed better than was speculated on social media - a fact that has been validated by the jump in collections on Saturday.

However, after the low initial, these jumps in collections over the weekend will make no difference to the outcome of the film. Mohenjo Daro has been made on an enormous budget of Rs 120 crore - inclusive of print and publicity.

A good trend over the week is unlikely and Team Mohenjo Daro will hope to reduce the magnitude of losses over the four-day weekend.
