2017 has been a dull year when it concerns Bollywood and the box office collections. Bollywood hasn’t been able to get great cash in flow even with the biggest of films that have released this year. Thankfully, Toilet Ek Prem Katha has had a great weekend and the earning is even better than the previous Akshay Kumar film, Jolly LLB 2. Toilet has already managed to cash in Rs 50 Crores in the first three days.
- Friday – 11,71,00,000
- Saturday – 17,00,00,000 apprx
- Sunday – 21,25,00,000 apprx
- Grand Total – 50,00,00,000
The film is made on a Rs 40 Crore budget and is already Rs 10 Crore in profit. With an extended weekend clubbed with Independence Day, the film is surely going to rake in more money. Toilet -Ek Prem Katha is also one of the top 5 highest weekend grosser in 2017 after Tubelight and Raees. Though Tubelight wasn’t a hit and Raees was an average, this Akshay Kumar starrer will hopefully break the on going 2017 jinx in the Bollywood.
Fourth in the first weekend
- Bahubali: The Conclusion – 1,27,28,00,000 (ALL TIME RECORD)
- Tubelight – 61,53,00,000
- Raees – 59,48,00,000
- Toilet Ek Prem Katha – 50,00,00,000 approx
- Jolly LLB 2 – 47,59,00,000

With bigger film like Judwaa 2, Padmavati, Tiger Zinda Hai & Secret Superstar lined up for the latter half of 2017, we hope some moolah is directed towards big pockets of Bollywood.
