John Abraham's Batla House has found a good footing at the Indian box office despite releasing alongside Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal which is currently having a dream run at the ticket windows. The action thriller based on a real-life encounter episode arrived in cinema halls on Thursday after garnering good pre-release buzz. The movie then took a very good opening at the domestic box office and fared superbly over the four-day extended opening weekend. Directed by Nikhil Advani, Batla House even remained stable at the ticket windows on Monday and this means the movie is heading into the right direction at the box office.

According to BollywoodHungama, John and Mrunal Thakur starrer clocked in Rs 5.05 crore on day 5, bringing its grand total to Rs 53.04 crore. While the film was expected to do good business in multiplexes, what's really helped in boosting the collections of Batla House is the fact that the action thriller has been pulling the crowd in single screen theatres as well.
Further, Boxofficeindia.com has stated in its report, "The film is doing its best business in Delhi / UP while Mumbai circuit has managed to hold fairly well, the fall came in Gujarat but Mumbai and Pune have held pretty well. The film has shown a lesser fall than Mission Mangal on Monday as the numbers are much lower than that film but if it can continue with this trend then the film can get closer to that film as far as the daily business is concerned."

John, who was last seen in Romeo Akbar Walter, is currently making his presence felt at the box office along with Akshay Kumar. Both the actors are doing well in their respective ways and since there is no release this week, its pretty evident that Batla House and Mission Mangal will continue to entertain the masses without any trouble for another week.
