With Rs 29 crore on opening day, Mission Mangal turned out to be Akshay Kumar's top opening film and also the film with highest numbers on an extended weekend: It even beat the extended weekend collections of 2.0 (Rs 95 crore) and Kesari (Rs 78 crore).
On Independence day, Mission Mangal clashed with John Abraham's Batla House, which too has raked in as much as Rs 57 crore. While John is the only star-power in Batla House, Mission Mangal also stars Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen.
