Vicky Kaushal at the screening

The Reema Kagti directorial, based on India's historic win at 1948 London Olympics, earned Rs 8 crore nett on Thursday, against its Rs 25.25-crore opening on Wednesday.

Gold is doing particularly well at multiplexes, and Satyameva Jayate finds its audiences in B and C centres. Both the films released on Independence Day. According to Boxofficeindia it is the highest opening day ever for an Akshay Kumar film as it beat the Rs 16.98 crore worth collection of Singh Is Bling, which was released on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2) in 2015.

Akshay Kumar's Gold and John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate have proved that a same day release may after all not be a bad a thing. While Gold got the third biggest opening, Satyameva Jayate got fifth.

Stills from Gold and Satyameva Jayate. Total: "Rs 28.44 crore", Taran Adarsh tweeted.

The bout is priced very similarly to a potential Anthony Joshua fight with Fury available at EVENS and Joshua at 4/5. An announcement could come as soon as that point, but if not, it is likely to be confirmed in the days following.

Helmed by Milap Milan Zaveri and bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikhil Advani under T-Series and Emmy Entertainment, Satyamev Jayate also stars actors like Manoj Bajpayee, Aisha Sharma and Amruta Khanvilkar.

Talking about the clash with Gold, John said earlier, "I think there is enough space for two big films on a holiday".

The film-makers are proud that Satyameva Jayate became the first A certified film to earn Rs 20.52 Crore at the box office on its first day, and meanwhile we'll have to wait and watch if the John Abraham starrer will further break records in the coming days.
