Akshay Kumar, Rohit Shetty, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh have managed to bring alive theatres after a dull spell that lasted for almost 2 years. Their actioner Sooryavanshi has set the cash counter ringing and boards of 'Housefull' have made a comeback. The film released on November 5 and the audience celebrated Diwali with Team Sooryavanshi in theatres. 

After kicking off on a great note, Sooryavanshi held itself well on the second day in cinema halls. According to a trade report, the actioner collected around Rs. 24.50 crores at the box office on Saturday. Since it was Bhaidooj, the report estimated that the drop could be only 5-10%.
