Ram Setu Box Office Collection Day 1: The latest Bollywood film starring Akshay Kumar has managed to get a good opening. On the day of release, Ram Setu has earned Rs 15 crore in India, thus becoming the best opener for Akshay in 2022. Earlier this year, Akshay has featured in three theatrical releases- Bachchhan Paandey, Samrat Prithviraj and Raksha Bandhan- and one direct to OTT release- Cuttputlli. With all his films getting an underwhelming response from the fans, all eyes will be on how Ram Setu performs at the box office.
Ram Setu opens well in mass circuits
Even though Ram Setu's advance booking was less, the movie registered a good opening due to walk-in audience in the evening. The mass circuits in states like Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Central India are responding well to the film. As per Taran Adarsh, the film saw an opening of Rs 15.25 crore, which is second best for a Hindi original film in 2022, only after Brahmastra Part 1. For Akshay, who has seen 3 theatrical releases this year, Ram Setu is his best opening film. Despite mixed reviews, the movie has seen a good day-one business. It will be interesting to see its trajectory hereon.

Ram Setu opens better than Thank God
Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra's Thank God hit the big screens simultaneously on October 25 with Ram Setu. On the opening day, the collections of Ram Setu were way ahead of Thank God. Ajay's film started on a decent note and collected Rs 8.10 crore. Since Thank God is a comedy, it would want to see the patronage of the family audience in the coming days. However, since Ram Setu is also meant for the family audience, both movies would try to win the favour of moviegoers.
