Riding on the excellent word of mouth publicity, Akshay Kumar’s Airlift managed approx 20% jump in the collection on second day in the domestic market. The film is enjoying more than 75% occupancy in the big cities, but it’s not performing like a masala movies in the smaller circuits. KKHH3 is giving it a tough competition in small towns.
As per the box office reports, the movie amassed 14.60 crores on first Saturday to take its total domestic box office collection to 26.95 crores after 2 days. The movie is supposed to witness the same kind of growth in the collection on Sunday, so the first weekend collection is expected to be 44-45 crores. Also, Tuesday (26 January) is a big holiday in India, so probability of scoring a huge total in the first week is definitely high. If it could manage good number of footfalls in the smaller circuits on Sunday and Tuesday, the first week collection might be 75-80 crores.
