After entering the coveted Rs 100 crore club in just five days of its release, Mission Mangal is now faring well on weekdays at the ticket windows in India. Filmmaker Jagan Shakti's directorial venture will in fact soon surpass the Rs 150 crore mark as well since there is hardly any competition at the Indian box office. The multi-starrer movie featuring Akshay Kumar in the lead arrived in cinema halls on August 15 and since then has been getting cash registers ringing big time. The fantasy space drama even passed the crucial Monday test at the box office and then on Tuesday is clocked in another Rs 7.92 crore, bringing its total six-day collection to Rs 114.39 crore.
