Rustom can be Akshay Kumar's 3rd film this year but still it has beaten Hrithik Roshan's comeback film after two years called Mohenjo Daro.
Rustom is comfortably ahead of Mohenjo Daro in Delhi/NCR, UP, East Punjab. It also has a lead in Mumbai. Mysore circuit will be a close call. Meanwhile, Mohenjo Daro is way ahead of Rustom in Tamil Nadu and Nizam/Andhra. It is also expected to take the lead in East India.
But with Rustom leading North India and neck to neck in Mumbai, it will be hard for Mohenjo Daro to go past Akshay starrer on the 1st day. As it is the North India trend that decides the 1st day collection for Hindi films.
Take a look at the comparison.
