Box office collections might actually not be as catastrophic as they are made out be. Akshay Kumar-starrer Gold and John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate released simultaneously on Independence Day (15 August) and both the films have been able to milk the lucrative festive weekend.

On the third, fourth and fifth day of its release (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), Reema Kagti's sports drama Gold raked in Rs 37.95 crore. Although it opened with a bang on Wednesday (Rs 25.25 crore), it witnessed a substantial dip on the second day (Rs 8.10 crore). However, the multi-starrer was able to redeem itself on the next three days.

Milap Zaveri's commercial action-drama Satyameva Jayate also earned Rs 28.47 crore over the weekend after recording a Wednesday (15 August) opening of Rs 20.52 crore.

Both the films, despite belonging to different genres, rode the patriotic wave and accumulated a whopping Rs 125 crore during the 5-day weekend, combined.
