Raksha Bandhan Box Office
Raksha Bandhan was reportedly made on an estimated budget of 100 crores. The film opened with rave reviews from the critics and despite this, it failed to make a mark at the box office.
Akshay’s film earned only 44.39 Cr at the box office against its budget of 100 crores incurring losses to the distributors and the exhibitors. The reason behind its failure is said to be the multi-clashes and the negative trend for Bollywood at that time. On the online ticket bookings website, Raksha Bandhan has 8.3 out of 10 ratings with 51K votes which proves the aforementioned point.
