Mission Mangal Vs Batla House: I-Day Box Office Battle Gathers Force | Manoranjan Fatafat

Akshay Kumar and John Abraham's Independence Day war at the box-office has begun. Bollywood's poster boys of nationalism, Akshay and John, have released "Mission Mangal" and "Batla House" respectively on August 15 this year, and initial reports suggest both films have seen a good opening at the box-office on day one.

"Mission Mangal", which is based on Indian Space Research Organisation's successful mission to Mars, has raked in over Rs 29 crore upon opening on Thursday, while "Batla House" has minted over Rs 14 crore. However, "Mission Mangal" has the advantage of a bigger screen count. While the Akshay Kumar-starrer opened in over 3,000 screens nationwide, John's "Batla House" released across 2750 screens.
