Kesari 6th Day Box Office Collection: Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra starrer Kesari drops on Tuesday, crosses 90 crores mark.
Akshay Kumar’s historical war-drama Kesari continues to drop on weekdays. After a good extended opening weekend with the collection of 78.07 crores, the movie recorded more than 60% drop in the collection on Monday. On its 5th day, the movie earned 8.25 crores.

Now, on Tuesday, the movie went down by 10-15% and earned around 7 crores. The total collection of the movie after six days stands at 93+ crores. It is expected to cross 105 crores by the end of the extended first week.
Although the movie had performed well, there is no denying that it has underperformed at the box office. Trade experts had better expectations from the film as far as box office numbers are concerned.
Kesari will be Akshay Kumar’s 10th 100 crore movie. It will be Akshay Kumar’s fastest 100 crore movie along with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (8 days).
The total budget (promotion and advertising cost) of Kesari is 100 crores. It needs to earn 130 crores to be declared a box office hit.
It remains to be seen, how many days will it take to achieve this number. I am expecting the movie to drop further in the coming days. Kesari will find it difficult to sustain after the second weekend.
The expectations were high and it has certainly underperformed. Many trade experts were expecting it to cross 100 crores by the end of the first weekend.
Most of the experts were expecting it to cross 200 crores especially after a good opening and positive response. Well, 200 crore is certainly out of question now. It seems that Akshay Kumar has to wait more for his first 200 crores grosser.
