"Akhil" opened to mixed reviews the other day, and the film got stunning response from B & C centres due to the festive holiday. Huge occupancy rate was registered across the Telugu states and other centres like Karnataka and Overseas. According to information shared by producer Nithin alone, "Akhil" has amassed nearly 8.3-8.5 crores 'share' in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. However trade pundits are predicting something more than 9.5 crores 'share' from the two Telugu states.
As the film releases in 1100+ theatres, including 700 in Telugu states, 150+ theatres in Rest of India and 250+ screens in Overseas, the collections between anywhere near 9.5-10 crores 'share' from across the globe in case there are 80% fills in theatres. Coming to USA Box office, Akhil collected $ 90,268 from 117 screens in USA for premieres. So, the final figures might be somewhat mind blowing.
Irrespective of word of mouth, films with stars and huge hype, generally get such hefty openings. Final figures of "Akhil" are likely to come out by the evening. In case if "Akhil" collects more than 9.74 crores 'share' from AP and T alone, then the film is likely to stand in Top 5 bunch for First Day Collections Record, which now has Baahubali (22.4 Cr), Srimanthudu (14.72 Cr), Bruce Lee (12.66 Cr), Attarintiki Daredi (10.75 Cr) and Aagadu (9.74 Cr). The film is unlikely to enter the Top 10, if it collects below 9.1 crores 'share' from two Telugu states.
