Raksha Bandhan Box Office Collection Day 5: Akshay Kumar's family drama is not faring well at the box office but hopes are still high as the film continues to enjoy positive word of mouth. After seeing a nominal jump on day 4, the film again saw a drop in its fifth-day collection. Also featuring Bhumi Pednekar, Raksha Bandhan is facing direct competition from Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha. The film opened up at Rs 8.20 crore which is at the lowest end of trade expectations. Reportedly, theatre owners canceled 1000 shows of the film on day two, after an average occupancy.
According to Box Office India, "Raksha Bandhan collected a poor 27 crore net over its four-day weekend and there is still one more day to go for the weekend with a big holiday but collections did not go up much on Sunday which means there will not be much of a boost Monday."
Akshay Kumar's starrer remains better in Hindi-speaking belts of UP, CI, and Rajasthan. "The film is doing better in the Hindi circuits of CI, Rajasthan and UP but the jump was missing here on Sunday and these places do best on Sunday Despite the weekend and holiday the first day looks like remaining the best day for the film when the film needed to reach double digits at least."
