Akshay Generates 363 Crs At The Box Office In 2016 With Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom

Akshay Kumar’s Rustom has touched the 127 crore* mark. Though the film would just fall a few lakhs short of Airlift [129 crore], it still is from an academic perspective since both Akshay Kumar starrers are big superhits. As a matter of fact, Akshay Kumar’s three films [Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom] have now generated over 363 crore at the Box Office in 2016, which is a huge feat indeed.

Unless Aamir Khan throws a huge All Time Blockbuster in Dangal, the record for generating the maximum moolah in a calendar year would stay on with Akshay Kumar for 2016.
