Mission Raniganj Box Office Collection Day 3 (Prediction)
Mission Raniganj opened with 2.8 crore, which is a poor opening for such a big star like Akshay Kumar. The second-day collection is said to be around 4.50 crore. Despite the positive reviews, the audience misses the masala in the film and does not prefer it over commercial films like ‘Jawan’ and ‘Fukrey 3.
Mission Raniganj has been released on 2,500 screens across the nation, with only the Hindi language option available. Therefore, the North Indian audience is expected to show their love for this real-hero-based film, and early reviews are in favor of the movie. Akshay Kumar surprised his fans at a special screening of the film, and the fans couldn’t control their emotions. The response hints that this film will have a long theater run.
According to early estimates, ‘Mission Raniganj’ is expected to collect around 6-8 crore on its third day, with evening and night shows expected to contribute well to its overall opening weekend numbers. Here we will update the final number after night shows. 2 days of collection is 7.30 Crore, which is poor considering Akki’s stardom.
Mission Raniganj vs Other Releases
There are a number of films recently released in theatres, and a few of them are doing well too. Jawan has done its job, but still running in theatres with craze, Fukrey 3 is the movie that grabbed the attention of young audiences nowadays. Other films like Dono, The Vaccine War, Skanda in Hindi, and Thank You for Coming are not harmful to Mission Raniganj.
According to several sources, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Mission Raniganj’ was made on a budget of 120 Crores, including pre and post-production costs. Therefore, the film needs to earn a century at the box office, which seems achievable based on the reviews.
