New Delhi: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is having a tough time at the box office. On Day 4, the film was only able to collect only Rs 7.05 crores. This means that daily collections have not even touched double digits in the past four days despite it being a long weekend.
The box office results have been really surprising considering that it boasts of a stellar cast and crew. The total collections of the film have touched only Rs 28 crores as of now. However, the makers of the film shared a poster on their social media handles, thanking the audiences for overwhelming love and support.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “RakshaBandhan remains low-key on Day 4 , not hitting double digits even once… Mass pockets remain steady, but the overall 4-day total is disappointing… Thu 8.20 cr, Fri 6.40 cr, Sat 6.51 cr, Sun 7.05 cr. Total: ₹ 28.16 cr. India biz.”
