Mission Mangal, directed by Jagan Shakti, had a bumper opening on Independence Day with Rs 29.16 crore. The film turned out to be the second highest day one grosser of 2019, surpassing the first day business of Kalank (Rs 21.60 crore) by 35 per cent. It also became highest day one grosser among all films of Akshay Kumar.
The highest day one grosser of 2019, just before Mission Mangal, is Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer Bharat that collected Rs 42.10 crore on its opening day at the box office. The third, fourth and fifth highest day one grossers of 2019 are Kalank with Rs 21.60 crore, Kesari with Rs 21.06 crore and Kabir Singh with Rs 20.21 crore respectively. Mission Mangal’s robust collections are a result of strong word-of-mouth among the audience. The film is expected to touch Rs 90 crore post its first weekend.
