Akshay Kumar has aced the formula to make hit films, if there is a formula. With Toilet Ek Prem Katha, a socially relevant film that takes on the problem of open defecation in India, the actor has posted his fifth consecutive hit in the last 20 months. According to early estimates, Toilet movie managed to earn over Rs 100 crore in eight days after its release. The film came out on August 11.
On Saturday, trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed on Twitter that the film had crossed the coveted benchmark.
The film is Akshay Kumar’s 8th to cross Rs 100 crore at the box office. Salman Khan leads the pack with 11 films that have grossed more than Rs 100 crore.
