Mumbai, Jun 4 (): Rowdy Rathore of Akshay Kumar has started with the biggest opening weekend. Akshay’s last hit was Singh Is Kinng of 2008. The actor on Twitter thanked his fans saying they are the main reason at the back for the grand opening weekend.
The movie is made with a budget of Rs. 45 crore and the movie has collected Rs. 48.5 crore in its opening weekend. Taran Adarsh, film critic tweeted: RowdyRathore has raked Rs. 48.5 crore in just 3 days.
The first weekend collection of Rowdy Rathore is as follows:
