Opening Weekend Battle: Akshay Leads With Rustom Over Hrithik’s Mohenjo Daro

Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro and Akshay Kumar’s Rustom released this week and this one has been one of the biggest clash of the year. Both the stars have a huge standing at the box office as well as a massive fan base.

While Akshay’s Rustom took a much bigger opening than Hrithik’s Mohenjo Daro, the real test still remains as to how the films will be performing over the opening weekend. Interestingly, till now, Hrithik’s films have managed to take huge opening weekend collections although, with only almost one film a year. Akshay on the other hand has managed to give at least three films every year and most of them have fared well on the first weekend.
