Housefull 3 touches 75 cr in 6 days – Does Akshay Kumar deserve a lot more credit in Bollywood?
By Joginder Tuteja
Housefull 3 has set itself well for a good second week run as well. The film brought in 6.25 cr on Wednesday and with 74.88 crore as the total so far, it is set to surpass or at least come really close to the 80 crore total in its first week run.
For Akshay Kumar, this is yet another film in 2016 to do quite well, and remarkably both films belong to distinct genres. While Airlift was a dramatic affair, Housefull 3 is an out and out slapstick film which conveys a great deal about the versatility that the senior actor comes with. To be flipping genres at such rapid pace and finding continued appreciation practically every quarter of the year is a feat that no other superstar in the country is enjoying today.
Meanwhile, Riteish Deshmukh and Abhishek Bachchan have kept their record intact of delivering big successes in multistarrer flicks. They make for a good inclusion in a mix and add on to the star value that a film has to offer.
