It's a KESARI(ya) Holi for Akshay and Parineeti!
Though the naysayers were highly pessimistic about the Holi release date of the Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra starrer, KESARI, but the knowledgeable section of the trade knew that after a dull start due the festival of colours, the film will start rocking the box-office, afternoon onwards. And that is how the script unfolded!
As the initial reports KESARI saw a dull 20 percent start (good for Holi day), but from the afternoon shows the film picked up big and continued it’s merry box-office run, culminating into a superb occupancy during the latter shows. Though the exact numbers are not available (due to Holi) but at a very rough estimate, the film has netted in the range of 22-24 crore.
As things stand, the film is all set for a bumper extended weekend and despite the heavy (reportedly 80 crore) budget it’ll turn into another triumph for the neo Manoj Kumar, that is our very own Khiladi, Akshay Kumar!
