Akshay Kumar returned back to his action roots with the latest in the Khiladi series Khiladi 786. last Friday. With record breaking collections in single screens and slow but steadily growing collections in multiplexes, seems like Khiladi 786 has passed its test.
The music of the film has already become a rage and actor-singer-music composer-story writer and now producer Himesh Reshammiya surely has reason to celebrate.
The Indian theatrical collection is around 40 crores in 4 days and should touch 50 crores in the first week and with no opposition in 2nd week another 15 crores is expected.
This would be Reshammiya's fifth film in a row that has joined the 100 crores club, taking into consideration the revenues generated from the Indian theatrical rights, satellite rights, overseas rights, music rights, and the video rights.
Ending the year on a high note for the composer singer with songs from Bodyguard, Bol Bachchan, Oh My God, Son Of Sardaar, and now Khiladi 786, Himesh has given almost 25 hit songs this year. As for the year to come Himesh promises to up the ante with 50 hit songs.
