Kedarnath Box Office: Sushant Singh Rajput has had a roller coaster ride in his Box office career with movies that opened well like Raabta but eventually failed, Shuddh Desi Romance which worked decent, and his best till now – M.S. Dhoni which was no less than a turning point or a peak for him. His recent, Kedarnath, which hit the theatre screens yesterday performed impressively and has surpassed not 1 or 2 but his 4 movies’ opening day collections.
The movie which also marks the debut of Sara Ali Khan, has raked in more a than unexpected amount, and has added 7.25 crores to its kitty on the opening day. The numbers are great considering the mixed reactions that the audience gave.
The good news is that Kedarnath has been a call for celebration for Sushant because it has surpassed Shuddh Desi Romance (6.45 crores), Raabta (5.61 crores), Kai Po Che (4.5 crores) & Detective Byomkesh Bakshy (4.20 crores) in the list of his Top 5 Highest Opening Movies. Meanwhile, his best still remains to be M.S. Dhoni (21.30 crores), in which saw him portraying the Indian cricketer Dhoni.
