Birthday boy Akshay Kumar tops 2016 with 365 crore from Airlift, Housefull 3 and now Rustom
By Joginder Tuteja
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar’s Rustom has touched the 127 crore* mark. Though the film would just fall a few lakhs short of Airlift [129 crore], it still is from an academic perspective since both Akshay Kumar starrers are big superhits.
As a matter of fact, Akshay Kumar’s three films [Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom] have now generated over 365 crore at the Box Office in 2016, which is a huge feat indeed.
Unless Aamir Khan throws a huge All Time Blockbuster in Dangal, the record for generating the maximum moolah in a calendar year would stay on with Akshay Kumar for 2016.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
