Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office report of Mission Mangal and wrote that Mission Mangal will be Akshay's first film to collect cross the coveted Rs 200 crore-mark.

Here's the updated box office report of Mission Mangal:
Mission Mangalreleased to mixed reviews on Independence Day and it stood its ground despite the release of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor's Saaho later in August. Saaho too performed exceptionally well at the ticket window but it could not dampen the success story of Mission Mangal.
Taran Adarsh also shared the week-wise break-up of Mission Mangal's box office log:
In addition, Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari's new film Chhichhore, featuring Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles, fared well at the box office but it could not put a stopper to Mission Mangal's money-making spree.
Mission Mangal also features Sharman Joshi, Sanjay Kapoor, Dalip Tahil and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in pivotal roles.
