In total, Ranveer’s box-office earnings reached Rs 542.46 crore, made him the second history-creator.
Records are set to be broken, and last year Akshay Kumar has established a new golden page for the B-town history. The prestigious collection club has been pushed to a new foundation of Rs 700 crore in a year. The Khiladi of Bollywood has made it with a quartet of releases in 2019 such as Kesari, Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, and Good Newwz.
Coming to the details, Akshay kick-started his successful note by his highly-appreciated performance in Kesari which fetched home Rs 154.41 crore. In mid-year, he gained another milestone in his acting career with Mission Mangal which has been his first film to enter Rs 200 crore club. He continued his series of box-office success with the third 2019 release Housefull 4 collecting Rs 194.60 crore even when it didn’t receive a lot of positive reviews. The last one was his running film at the box office, Good Newwz, the film has been reported to attract Rs 162.10 crore to the bank and still counting. So Akshay totally crossed the benchmark of Rs 700 crore.
