After an impressive start with more than expected numbers on Friday, Akshay Kumar- Bhumi Pednekar starrer film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha witnessed a massive jump on its second day in theatres. The film received favourable reviews and audience loved the film because of its unique and unusual concept which has resulted in tremendous growth in the collections.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has collected Rs. 17.10 Crore on Saturday which is a substantial boost for the film. With this, the 2-day total of the film now stands Rs. 30.20 Crore which is almost similar to Akshay’s earlier release of the year Jolly LLB 2.
|Day-wise||Collection in Nett (INR)|
|Day 1- Friday||13.10|
|Day 2- Saturday||17.10|
TEPK total collections fall just below Shah Rukh's Jab Harry Met Sejal and it is expected that with Sunday numbers, the Akshay-starrer will cross the numbers of JHMS.
|Film||Day 1 in Nett (INR)||Day 2 in Nett (INR)||2-Day total in Nett (INR)|
|Baahubali 2 (Hindi)||41 Crore||40.50 Crore||81.50 Crore|
|Raees||20.42 Crore||26.30 Crore||46.72 Crore|
|Tubelight||21.15 Crore||21.17 Crore||42.32 Crore|
|Jolly LLB 2||13.20 Crore||17.31 Crore||30.51 Crore|
|Jab Harry Met Sejal||15.25 Crore||15 Crore||30.25 Crore|
|Toilet: Ek Prem Katha||13.10 Crore||17.10 Crore||30.20 Crore|
The film has a very strong word-of-mouth and it is being well received at both multiplexes and single screens. The rustic settings and relatable story is appealing the small town audience where the film is garnering so much love. It seems that the relevance and the social appeal of the film are giving the results.
The numbers are expected to keep increasing on Sunday as well. With holidays falling on the subsequent days with Janmashtami on Monday and Independence Day on Tuesday, TEPK will further grow stronger.
This trend comes as a relief for the exhibitors and distributors who were going through bad phase because of failure of the superstar films this year. If TEPK keeps growing in the same pace, the film will certainly turn into a profit venture.
