Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu becomes the second-highest opener for a Hindi film in 2022
Akshay Kumar-starrer Ram Setu raised Rs 15.25 crore on its opening day, becoming the second-highest opener for a Hindi film and the highest grosser on Day 1 for an Akshay-led film in 2022, the makers of the film said in a statement on Wednesday.
The Abhishek Sharma-directed movie, also starring Satyadev, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nassar and Nushrratt Bharuccha, released in theatres on October 25.
The story of Ram Setu follows the journey of an atheist archaeologist-turned-believer, Dr Aryan Kulshrestha (Akshay Kumar), who must race against time to prove the existence of Ram Setu.
As pointed out by Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Ram Setu is doing exceptionally well with the evening and night shows being sold out at most places.
#RamSetu starts well on Day 1 [#Diwali], especially in mass pockets… Average at bigger centres/metros… The biggg holiday has given it a head start and it’s crucial to maintain the momentum in the long, *extended* weekend… Tue ₹ 15.25 cr. #India biz. pic.twitter.com/R9Is6ZHIA4— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) October 26, 2022
