Zee Studio's 'Rustom' collects 14.1 crore on day one

The Zee Studio & KriArj entertainment-produced Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Rustom’ has garnered a box office collection of a whopping 14.11 crore on day one in India from 2317 screens, higher than the opening of Airflift that was a solo release. On the other hand, Mohenjo Daro, that released the same day has garnered 8.75 crore from approximately 2600 screens. 

Zee Studio’s Business Head Akash Chawla says, “It has all come together for us as Zee Studios with Rustom. The film has opened up to a great response and collections. The film has opened to a million Dirhams in UAE on day 1 and 1.3 million Dirhams on day 2. Overall, it has collected Rs 14.11 crore in India on day one and 1.24 million USD overseas, which is higher than Airlift. When your star goes all out like Akshay has, it makes a huge difference. In overseas, Zee is the biggest platform and that is a clear advantage that we bring from a marketing & distribution angle as Zee Studios when we distribute overseas. Finally, KriArj is a very valuable partner to work with and we look forward to more collaborations.”

Virender Arora and Arjun N.Kapoor of KriArj entertainment said, "We are very pleased with the response that Rustom has received from the viewers. There is a sense of gratification to have justified the tremendous anticipation that got built around our film with a movie that has met such tall expectations."

The Akshay Kumar starrer has seen a lot of positive reviews and this film looks to be a Zee Studio’s winner.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector.
