Akshay Kumar shines and Hrithik failed at box office!
Last Friday two Bollywood movies had hit the screens all over. One is Mohenjo Daro, which was a much anticipated big budget movie starring Hrithik Roshen and directed by popular director Ashuthosh Gowarikar. The other one is Rustom starring Akshay Kumar and directed by Tinu Suresh Desai. Compared to Mohenjo Daro, Rustom did not have that much hype and anticipation level. But in reviews and box office performance, Rustom came on Top and Akshay Kumar once again proved that after Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, he is the most dependable star in Bollywood now.
In its first 3 days, Rustom had collected around 50 crores from India alone. But Mohenjo Daro only got 30 crores from its first 3 days and the film had got only below average to average reviews as well. Rustom had got some very good reviews from all over and this period film is produced by popular director Neeraj Pandey who had earlier delivered super successes like Special 26 and Baby with Akshay Kumar in the lead. Mohenjo Daro is also a period film but failed to impress the audience with its making. Pooja Hegde is the female lead in Mohenjo Daro and Ileana D’Cruze was the female lead in Rustom.
