Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan talk on Mission Mangal’s success

The impressive star cast of Mission Mangal also includes Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kuilhari, Nithya Menen and Sharman Joshi. The film, that is based on the Batla House encounter, has been affected by the clash.

For Vidya Balan, Mission Mangal has come as a pleasant surprise. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the film's overseas collections. He thinks that the movie will have an opening of over Rs 27 crore.

Mission Mangal is Vidya Balan's third film with Akshay Kumar after the Heyy Babyy and Bhool Bhulaiyaa. However, it is the former that defeated John's film in the box office race on its opening day by a huge margin. If either of the films fails to meet the audience's expectations, the other will benefit. All through, even during the making (of the film) and promotions, I felt there is good energy around this film.

U.S. trade talks with China 'very productive': Donald Trump
Trump's tariff delay coincided with recession fears in USA markets sending stocks to their biggest one-day loss since October. While dumping US Treasuries is clearly a "nuclear option" against the trade war rival, the move could also backfire on China.

Meanwhile, Mission Mangal is at a score of Rs 70 crore in three days.

Presenting his opinion about "Mission Mangal", Kamal R Khan wrote, "Mission Mangal 'is unbecoming of scientists working for Mangalyaan". The film enjoyed an occupancy of around 65 percent in theatres across the country, registering a massive first day box office collection at the domestic market. Directed by Nikkhil Advani the film which is inspired from true events opened on a sluggish note despite the positive reviews. The difference between Batla House and the older film is that the latter had done better in the smaller multiplexes and single screens of Maharashtra, Nizam and central India. Yet, it does not pose a big competition for Mission Mangal. In fact, while Gold became Akshay's highest opener, Satyamave Jayate was registered as John's highest opener.
