Kesari box office collection Day 1: Akshay Kumar film becomes biggest opener of 2019

   According to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, 'Kesari' has emerged as the biggest box-office opener of 2019, raking in Rs 21.50-cr on the first day of its release.

   A Holi release has turned out to be a huge advantage for Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari. The historical drama had a great start at the box office on Thursday, as it emerged the highest opener of 2019 so far. Kesari, also starring Parineeti Chopra, earned Rs 21.50 crore on its Day 1. Now, with an extended weekend, the film is expected to continue pulling huge crowds at the theaters.

  Sharing the film’s opening-day figure, Mr Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “#Kesari roars... Sets the BO on... Emerges the biggest opener of 2019 [so far]... After limited shows in morning/noon [#Holi festivities], the biz witnessed massive growth from 3 pm/4 pm onwards... Evening shows saw terrific occupancy... Thu ₹ 21.50 cr. India biz.”


  Kesari, co-written and directed by Anurag Singh, is based on the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi that saw 21 Sikh soldiers of the British Indian contingent fighting against 10,000 Afghan invaders. Before attaining martyrdom, the Sikhs had managed to kill 900 of their enemies. The military combat is considered the bravest ever in the history of mankind.

  Kesari, jointly produced by Dharma Productions, Cape of Good Films and Azure Entertainment, has a budget of Rs 80 crore riding on it.
