This Friday, we had two releases, which certainly include the much hyped film called Airlift. The film has the talented actor – Akshay Kumar and the Lunchbox fame lady Nimrat Kaur. The film enjoyed a decent buzz in the media, thanks to the decent promotion of the film and the higher star value of it due to the presence of Akshay Kumar. The film however, was noticed with a decent occupancy especially at the metro cities and multiplexes, however, at the single screen the story was not that rewarding thanks to the other release Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 that gave a good competition to Airlift.
As per reports, the first day box office collection for Airlift tolled to around 12.48 crores, beating the sex comedy, which gave a tough competition despite being so dirty in terms of reviews and content. However, the experts and trade pundits feel that the film can get a good surge in the coming first weekend with positive word of mouth buzz in the media. Soon, the film is expected to kick off the other release for sure considering its rich content and reality based events that have been included in the film to make something different for the audience.
